One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

Do the fractured 540's and fractured Taz machines count ?

Then I'd say 10 slots, 7 Taz Machines, and 3 540's
The 6 Taz cascade was sharp.  Wink

I counted 9, 8, 4.  But then I'm just waking up from a nap.

I am sitting on the side confused... 8 Slots 7 Taz's, 23 540's,  Lips sealed Lips sealed Lips sealed Lips sealed Lips sealed

I am looking to make up a score card...  But I did get the answer to my question.
With complete video instruction.  Thats what I luv about you guys.  Kiss Kiss Kiss

I really appreciate everyone's input.  I can do a slot machine but watching martins videos makes me re-think everything.  I have not stopped working on my Half Axels.  Just simple wrist snapping with little arm movement and step forward.  I Luv that air popping noise. 

But I'd like to reiterate my appreciation to others who have helped me in the past and present.  There is no doubt that I would not be able to fly as good as I am at this point without this forums help. Two seasons later with advise and video examples.  I am ready to move on to more complicated tricks and combo's.

However, one thing John Weldon said to me a year a ago.  Enjoy flying !! Be careful not to burn out.  Learning too fast can lead to lack of interest.  At this point in my flying skills    I enjoy many days of just flying... and enjoying the few tricks I can perform including 1 or 2 French Flic Flacs ( American version).

Haven't got 4 on video yet but I have done it.  Lousy though.  I have done some nice one's with little to no movement.  Just needed better wind and camera.  ( Norm is a Ball Buster)  Embarrassed Embarrassed Embarrassed Embarrassed

I'm a slow learner.  Sad   

But now I know why I'm still interested even after 20+ years of flying.  Cheesy

To add, the slot machine is a reversing rotation while the taz is a continuing rotation.

Yep a Slot reverses rotation from the flare position, a Taz continues rotation in the same direction. The original definition for a "Slot Machine" did rotate 540 degrees and exit in the opposite direction. I dunno when that changed, but since I can't do a 540 slot or a Taz it's all good for my small bag of tricks.

Sounds cool. I'll give it a try when I'm on the field again!
