There are a total of 5 groups(Group 1 to Group 5) of tricks.  Does it mean that the Group 5 tricks are the hardest when comparing to the Group one(the easiest) ?

Just to make sure I understand this correctly... your question is

"which is the more difficult; the Half Axel or Yo-yo Multilazy ?"

 Huh

That Fearless really has a mixed up sense of priorities by the sounds of things.

If the peoples who involved in making the TPI were flying the F kite back then, the tricks yoyo multi lazy or cynique will be in group three and LS/multilazy is in group one.   Smiley

It certainly is a rich and vivid fantasy world you inhabit, isn't it ?  Roll Eyes

The only kite I've ever flown that might have made Yoyo Multilazies easier to do attractively than a decent Half Axel was the Air Oeuvre Mohawk and that was a kite I happily sent back to its owner. Who then sold it IIRC. I'd describe this sort of behaviour as a design flaw.

Second thought, the yoyo multi lazy or cynique  should be in group 2 and LS/multilazy is in group 0.5 if there is one. This list is for F kite users only. Cheesy

Saw several people with arrogant attitudes like that go out and crash and burn when they actually tried to do Tricks Party  Roll Eyes.  See how consistent your re-assessment of trick difficulty is when you're asked to do them consistently, right now, on the music, only one shot at it.  Even a half axel isn't a no-brainer under those conditions, and when you're actually being judged according to strict criteria.

It is the pressure of the competition that made them crash. Not the tricks. Luckily I'm flying for fun only.  Smiley

I would imagine that its like flying for your tripod times 100.   Huh

I went to a festival some time back where a group of us played PIG, but with flying tricks, instead of basketball shots.  It was alot of fun and gets you used to the idea of doing tricks on demand.

TP trick difficulty always struck me as case by case.

Some people would have a trick down and so it really was not particularly hard for them to do regardless of its group.

Something else that presented quite often:

The kites used by a majority of competitors made the Lewis, as an example, relatively easy and the Coin Toss, another example, next to impossible.

But then, that was true of many of the older school tricks. And of course people were not practicing those tricks particularly either.
