Boomerang Safety

Boomerangs are sports articles, NOT toys! Proper safety must ALWAYS be used when throwing.

Every boomerang we ship comes with a 24 page Boomerang Throwing Guide, including safety guidelines. Boomerangs are a technique based sport, involving a lot of spin on your boomerang for a proper return. You don't necessarily have to throw it hard. Throw it with maximum spin! The spin is what creates lift and helps the boomerang return. Learning to throw safely will reward you with more fun, and make you a better throwers also. Few things are cooler than seeing that boomerang take a turn and head right back at you! Remember, YOU are the target!

Safety Tips!
  • Only ONE Boomerang should be thrown at a time. Make sure that anyone else standing around is at least 50 yards away in all directions and that they are paying attention while you are throwing.
  • Children should only throw when there is an adult present to supervise.
  • Never throw your Boomerang at or to someone.
  • Always throw in large, open spaces; free of trees, buildings, cars, people, and anything else your Boomerang could hit or get stuck in. We recommend an open area at least the size of a football field of open space in each directions (100 yards x 100 yards is ideally recommended and much more space is needed for some competition boomerangs).
  • Competition level boomerangs should only be thrown by experienced throwers. They require more space to throw in as they are capable of going up to 200 yards away. They often spin faster and can be dangerous for a novice thrower. Yes, that's right...up to 200 yards away with a return for some Long Distance Boomerangs!
  • Never throw your boomerang in windy or gusty conditions, especially while you are trying to learn how to throw. A still, mild wind is ideal.
  • Protective Eyewear should be worn when throwing or catching boomerangs.
  • Never catch your Boomerang at eye-level. Always wait until the Boomerang is below shoulder height before attempting to catch.
  • Never throw your Boomerang laid out flat like a frisbee. The Boomerang should always be held nearly vertical on release to avoid dangerous diving and swooping flights.
  • If you are just learning to throw, don't throw too hard at first. For most Boomerangs, a half-powered throw is usually enough to get the boomerang to return. As you get more experienced you can add more power to your throw to get longer flights and ranges.

Surprised there are no other reviews...this boomerang is amazing. Consistent circular flight, easy to throw, nice hover for the catch.

Awesome boomerang

Got my first one of these about 20 years ago. Got back into it, and it’s still my favorite. Consistent flight, does well with or without wind.

Great flight, easy catch

Nice looking boomerang, a bit on the heavier side but flies surprisingly well. Spins slowly on the return, making it easy to catch even one-handed.

Fun boomerang

This boomerang is pretty unique and challenging. It’s heavy, and it flies FAR. Goes out straight, curves and climbs before coming back. Seems to need a strong throw and some wind to make it back, has a nice soft hover for the catch. Make sure you have plenty of space

Sex is awesome and all,but...

I recently got this boomerang and also the bumblebee and while the bumblebee is a bit more predictable, I like the bit of a challenge this one brings. I like how with no wind, you can pretty much throw it like you were aiming for a car's door at 60 feet, completely vertical as if there was any kind of wind, and it manages to lift off beautifully to come right back to you. It is a lot of fun for sure. I always bring it to work and since the parking lot is big enough, I can play with it and break a pretty good sweat with it before it's time to get started. Unfortunately, I had to give it only 5 stars, since we're not allowed to rate it any higher, so...
