Side slides are nice on that heavy thing.

But I kept thinking you were going to half axel...or backspin...or something. 

After flying the XTs for a while now, I keep thinking I could trick one of these...but I could be wrong.

Not a hard kite to trick you just need a lot of footwork or very long arms. It flick flacks and 540s easy enough even I could do it and that was way back in like 2003.

Here's an old vid by Bill Rogers. You can see him getting more confident and aggressive with the kite by the end. Seems like running out of sky is the main issues with that big kite.  Smiley

Thx for the video - really neat!

I have flown and TRIED to trick this kite before.  As a I recall, it requires serious footwork for tricks that usually require little/none.  I never worked so hard to do a flick-flack or attempt a jacobs ladder.

Hmm, is that a Thor's?  I don't recognize that color pattern.  I thought they only came in mostly black with red/orange and black/blue.. maybe that's a custom?

Nice vid!  All these Thor's vids are making me want to do my own.  It would surely be terrible though.   Cheesy

Have a look at the Level One Online Shop. There's a brand new Thors Hammer, Custom Made. I tried it a few weeks ago and it is really really nice. I think this one is the last Thors Hammer which is produced!

There have been a steady stream (one or two a year) on the used market.

But, it's a hell of a nice kite even at new price. It's certainly not for everyone.

I only fly my novelty kites (big or small) once or twice a year, most of my flying is concentrated on standard kites. It really comes down to not having enough time to fly...
