Boomerang Safety

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

Every boomerang we ship comes with a 1 page double-sided Boomerang Manual, 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.

My grandson won't try it he's afraid of losing it.
Any ideas to keep it from going far.

Incredible Design

I have been making and throwing boomerangs for years, and this design has incredible throwing consistency. This boomerang is perfect for anyone wanting to learn how to throw. I have gotten returns off this rang while throwing from a chair. Jim Mayfield was an expert at designing rangs, and this is one of his best designs. I am still throwing one of his originals from 95’ when it was orange and red. If the rang is in stock, I would recommend buying, as it is frequently sold out most of the year.

10/10 still one of my favorites.

The Next Step

If you have mastered throwing the Aspen (beginner boomerangs), the Alpine makes a great "next step up" boomerang. You will need a little more precision, control and muscle but will be rewarded with further flights that are very impressive. Great boomerang.

Challenging yet excellent

This boomerang requires an arm to throw it but it has some crazy distance. Highly recommend for someone with experience!

Best First Rang

The Aspen is by far the best boomerang for anyone starting out in the sport. I started with the Aspen 20 years ago and progressed through increasingly advanced boomerang including the Jim Mayfield designed Delicate Arch SE. But I always warm up with and continue to throw my Aspen. It is such a fun boomerang that I bought one for my 13 year old son as his first boomerang. Keep throwing, keep growing.

A great indoor 'rang!

These are amazing little flyers. The moderate forward sweep allows you to control mid-flight lay over just enough to fly inside without high ceilings. By modifying the throw speed, release angle and spin, you can really get some cool flights... even with very little arm strength. You can even experiment with adding (very light) weights to the wing tips. An outstanding value; I have a stack of these for turning friends on to the sport.

great gift

I have not seen it....had it sent to my grandson as a birthday gift, he really loves it.

Archive boomerang

My 6 year old son has a blast throwing this boomerang. Works great I would recommend.

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
