The Wind Vane Does Not Spin As Freely As The Wind Speed.

The wind vane was designed to be dampened on purpose so that the slightest wind does not change the wind direction, which would result in the wind being scattered or variable all of the time.

If you review other products, it was a major complaint.

For example, you can read more here:

Many customers were adding weights to the vane to make it less responsive. We came up with a better solution than making the wind vane heavier (which wears the bearings faster). We added some resistance or damping to the wind vane.

It takes about 2-3 mph for the wind vane to change direction.
