Default No Bow No Go vs. TOTT templates

I've decided to spend the money on a bowmaker because I've already been frustrated with my efforts to figure things out and get my bows as nice as I'd like them. So, I'm just wondering if anyone knows what the differences really are between these two systems--No Bow No Go and TOTT. They both seem good and flexible. They're about the same cost. Any input you would have would be much appreciated!

I have both and I only use TOTT for pinwheels. (Thats all I've ever used it for too and its what I bought when I first started)

If I would've known about NBNG I would've bought it to start with!

I was thinking of buying a template too. I wanted to buy one last month but could not decide between the two.

Thank you so much for your input! I was leaning towards the NBNG, but wasn't sure if there was some reason TOTT might be as good/better. Also, thanks, davang1027, for letting me know the 9 piece set was enough. My first inclination was to buy that one, but then I wondered if I'd regret not getting the 12 piece set. I ordered it today and am excited just looking over the instructions. I have three girls and four nieces so I should be using this thing plenty!!

I had my husband make homemade ones and am very happy. They work great! Just used a used priority box. No need to spend big bucks.

I ordered the nbng after hearing all the rave reviews, and it looks like i should be getting them today i am super excited. Some people rave about freehanding bows which is cool if you can do it but enough with struggling with bows when there is a better way.
