The huge lumbering flight of this boomerang will blow your mind! Nobody thinks it will make it back, but it always does. The Kilimanjaro boomerang gets tons of attention at the park... get a Kilimanjaro! Weighted tips for extra distance. Makes a special gift for someone at least 150 lbs in weight (This is a big boom!). It is clearly one of the best boomerangs in our stock. 50 yard elliptical flight. As with many large booms, it usually requires a 30-45 degree layover to get it to return properly ( aim it 30-45 degrees to the right of the wind direction for a RH thrower ). wind: light-medium. Please note that colors may vary. Height and width: 14.5 x 10.

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!
Definitely an attention getter. I had 4 police vehicles watching me and after 45 min, they asked if I could throw elsewhere because I was causing too much of a distraction to motorists.
For various reasons, I've purchased this particular boomerang multiple times (broken, lost, etc.). And every time, I have done it with super conviction that it is a worthwhile purchase. Pound for pound and $ for $, this is one of the most amazing booms I own - and it never ceases to thrill! Does equally well in no, low and high (within reason) wind situations. For really long trajectories, requires a fairly strong throw and it will reward you in return! :-)
A 'Must Have' for any serious ranger!
I bought this in 2017 as my first boomerang in 2017. I separated my right shoulder shortly after, and had to put learning off for a year.
But I have been practicing with it in 35° weather in the winter of 2018 and have it figured out now. If you really throw it hard, it flies amazingly far and returns nicely. It gets so addicting, that I sometimes I spend 3 to 4 hours practicing until I can throw it blindfolded.
Don't expect good results at first, you have to invest the time, but once you understand it, it is truly amazing, and attracts attention. Make sure you throw only in very large fields because it goes way, way, out, and is easy to hang up in a tree.
Once you’ve gotten it down, this boomerang is addicting to throw and it’s very consistent. But please only throw it in large enough flat-grass area where the boomerang can make a complete flight without hitting trees, light poles, people, or anything that risks the loss/destruction of your boomerang ; or risks harming you or someone else. Be smart and have fun out there everyone!
This one is great!! Easier to trow than some of my others. I have 20 wooden and 10 assorted other plastic and foam. This one works great with and without wind with slight adjustments to your throw. It Goes out far arc's, comes back and hovers over me. Even if you throw so it comes in low to your body it flairs out at the end of the flight which makes it easy to catch.
