Welcome to the GWTW Forum.
Guests (non-registered users) can view the forum but are unable to post.  If you don't have anything to say then why would you bother to register?
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".

IMHO only the very first one is a real taz machine, all the others are incomplete tazs just because you were missing a consistent part of the flat rotation. Indeed you exit the trick flying in the same direction of entry, in a taz instead you have to fly away in the opposite direction you entered the trick.
That is due to a low slack you give to the lines after the input for the 540 flat rotation, allow more slack and you'll see the complete rotation  Wink

My bad. After further review I stand corrected. Only one Taz.


I always wanted to be a procrastinator..........
I just never got around to it.

I've never flown that kite that I can recall,

Hmm, looks like a WM to me. I think you've flown one of those.  Wink


Indeed - for some reason I thought it was a Solus instead of a WM.  I couldn't Taz in those days, however.
