It doesn't need to be aggressive. In light winds pull the moves slowly anticipating where the handles need to be at the conclusion of the move. 'Holding the pose' can actually [Edit] 'be' part of 'feeling the kite'.
Sometimes the lines can 'go slack' but it is still possible to 'feel the kite'. Understanding the visual 'feedback' obviously helps a lot! <grins>
Your right, it doesn't have to be aggressive. But occasionally I get a kick outta spankin the kite a little.
Where I'd normally fly with a ton of break (palms down of course) I end up moving back and forth a little.
So I got a wild hair and folded my top leaders in half and tied on. 2 to 5 mph worth of wind, I didn't have to move around as much and I found I could fly fast and hard. I'm just a different bird. I like to push it everyonce in a while. I love the feeling of pulling something that shouldn't be possible given the wind or kite set up. It's just cool.
I know how a Rev 1 axles, and I work on the full axle type cascade with my pro, and because of the way I'm sure the Zen axles I'm curious what a double axling cascade would look like
Sorry for the edit.
For those not familiar with me, I fly in 3 mph or less of wind on a faily regular basis. Street flying has still got me a bit grumpy, but I'd imagine thats because I spend the majority of my flying time on 120s.
By no means a Pro, but at least somewhat compitent when it comes to flying.
