Better watch the video: http://fwd.five.tv/videos/wind-up-challenge-part-two

then read the thread: http://fracturedaxel.co.uk/phpBB2/viewt ... sc&start=0

Do you think it deserves a place in the Tricky Wiki (if someone can describe it fully?)

:-D

I can do it in one direction, but reversing it is a real problem. Teaching your brain to do this complicated thing in the other direction is really hard :(

One day I will be able to do a Twizzle cascade, so look out y'all Trick-Out competitors :evil:

;)

....And some kites don't seem to turn fast enough to be good twizzlers.

Twizzle cascade - worth a go. :cool:

Barts perfected his Twizzle on the DS and Psycho at Crantock and can't see what all the fuss is about! He also managed what we called a "Barts Flip-Flop" loosely described as tugging on the line at the 'wrong' time causing kite to fall out of sky in a fairly random way... As a n00b he compared it to many of the efforts of the other FA flyers and declared a victory :lol:

Please post more details and video of the 'Barts Flip-Flop' so we can prepare ourselves with offensive action!

Failure to do so could potentially invalidate your claim to a new trick.

We (as yet) have no video evidence.

Why should he have to give away his trade secrets?... you can't all get this good! ;-)
