In the lower pic, Elliot Big Lift on the left end and Elliot Mammut on the right.  

Wish they were more prevalent in the US.  :'(  

Tom (ezme6) had both at one point or another.

We had the itty bitty Thor's Hammer out for a while at AKA Nationals last week.  That was my first chance to fly it.  Powering through the center of the window had me leaning my 240 lbs way back.  Cascades and fades worked well for me.  I couldn't quite pull off a Jacobs Ladder.  I like the big arm motions. 

Flying the TH should be part of any full body workout program. ;-)  That stack is insane!

Considering the crossbracing from the LE to the center-T (?), the Mammut must have been a bear. 

There's something special about the sail outline of the Big Lift.  Similar to the Mammut, just a hair more lithe.  Hard not to like the elephant either  Wink
