    • the problem is  you need the mass (leading edge) to lead the half turn (away from your throw) to wind-up inverted.  So to do an axel you'd have to throw it with the floppy end leading FIRST!  Unless your lines are really short, this isn't likely to be successful frequently, the mass is pushing the trailing edge and it will not slice thru the wind accurately (if at all)

    • Gentleman that I bought it from said the postal service said 6-7 days. I'm giving them a wide berth... international shipping is pretty tricky and can be time consuming. Thanks for the heads up. 2 weeks is what I am expecting.
