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".

If I do a left handed backspin, do I use left handed multi lazies to unwind the lines?

Yes sir!

I always think of this by imagining myself looking at the kites back and then watching if it spins clockwise or counter.

Test yourself.

If you do a right-hand initiated comete, which hand to backspin to unwind it?

lol.  Good question, but I do not know.

What about right-hand initiated comete, which hand to 540s to unwind it?

Is there a logical way to derive all these answers?

Right hand initiated cometes unwind with left hand initiated Taz Machines.
