It's a minefield of information; there's "tubeless" , "UST", "tubeless ready", not to mention "ghetto" tubeless...
UST tyres seem to be made of lead, weighing more than a normal tube and tyre, so what's the point? Tubeless ready are normal tyre weight, 500gms or so.
I run two sets of tubeless, one with Stans rim tape, and one with gaffer tape, both with Stans sealant. The Stans rims have not needed pumping up for over two months, but the gaffers seem to need it after every other ride. Both sets of tyres are "tubeless ready" Bontis, XR2s and MudX, on DT4.2 rims. They are no harder to get on and off than ornery tyres. On Stans rims though, they were a nightmare to get on.
I have to say, I'm very impressed with Bonti tyres now!
Light grippy and fast!
Go for it!
