Australian Decorated Throwing Stick

$145.00

This throwing stick is not a boomerang which returns. It is designed for controlled throws in a straight line of a 65+ yard or more distance. Historically, the Australian Aboriginal people used them to hunt mainly Kangaroos and Emus as well as other endemic wild-life. They are like the aboriginal swiss army knife. Useful for hacking through the bush, digging, hunting small game by being thrown or clubbing an emu around the neck area to disable it. And light enough to be carried long distances.

These are quality aerodynamic devices, handcrafted with multi-layered Birch, and weighted to give it extra distance and balanced weight distribution. Designed for competitive use in the Throwstick Target Event. Has a length from tip to tip of 21 inches. Note: These are weight balanced so some have 1 weight, some have 2 and some have more than 2 weights. Remember to enjoy safely, and responsibly. This is RIGHT HANDED only.

There are multiple ways to grip a throw stick for best control but note that it takes a side arm throw with maximum spin if you want a long throw. Throwing sticks are also known as "rabbit sticks", "hunting sticks" or just a "non returning boomerang". These videos shows you the proper throwing grip and throwing technique.

Our throw sticks are hand crafted by Australian champion Roger Perry himself, one of the most highly regarded Australian boomerang crafters ever. Roger Perry hand crafts these artifacts with joy in Perth, Australia. We have no doubt these will be sold someday as collector's items at 3 times the price in the near future.

There are so many stories of throwing sticks being used throughout Australian history and it is no surprise that it was the tool of choice for the aboriginal people. Crossing vast distances in search of food requires traveling lightly. The intense heat involved means digging an area to lay down in the dirt to cool off under a bush in the heat of day. The heat was so intense it alone could kill you so being able to cool oneself off is a priority. Hacking through thick brush was an important survival skill in the outback. Throw Sticks were really the perfect survival tool in that environment.

Exceeds Expectations

I was impressed with the Seagull boomerang. Smooth controlled flight. Never seen or used a boomerang that was SO easy to use. I hate to tip everyone off because I want more for my family. It is a well made quality product exceeded only by Colorado Boomerang Customer Service.

Great

Just need a bigger open space

Great Purchase

My son absolutely loves his new Red Bolt Boomerang.

Big bomber boom with a learning curve

First day throwing the Kilimanjaro was initially frustrating, as I repeatedly dumped it into the ground. But after some trial & error; adjusting release angle (with extra layover of 30-45+ degrees), it flies far out (without wind) – almost straight out, while climbing, then returns on a narrow U-shaped path, which was unexpectedly cool! Eventually got a catch. In windy conditions, flight path differed (more elliptical), but getting a catchable return was rare, as it'd sail past me. With more practice, this 'K-boom' will be amazing. For now, a half-star deduction for the rough paint finish and learning curve (at least for me) – 4.5 stars. If you have a strong arm, good technique, and like challenging, long-distance flights, get this boom!

Sweet Aussie RP design & flight

The Lazy Hook is a sweet-looking Roger Perry design, with a snazzy paint job and glossy finish. It's mid-sized, thick in the middle, with a tapered trailing arm, and a weighted leading arm. I found it flies higher than the description, but that's probably from some wonky throwing. However, it returns well, even without a strong throw. I recommend it for recreational or serious throwers!

Bend the tips down minutely for a lower throw. Bend the tips up slightly if you want a higher throw.
