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:

Oh bugger. :oops:
At least my Element is an excellent twizzler!

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! ;-)
