This boomerang has an crazy flight path. It takes a little practice but you can get it to fly 50 yards out while hovering 20 feet of the ground in a perfect circle. Worth every penny.
I appreciate the opportunity to provide feedback. I received the boomerang and tried to fly it. I have 20 years of experience flying boomerangs and despite this I could not get the boomerang to return. It was warped in a way that I could not straighten. I tried to contact Colorado boomerangs through their website and I receive no response. I have a number of Colorado boomerangs. The Everest, the Kilimanjaro, and even the UniKey are great boomerangs. This one is not sadly. It was a waste of my money. And worse the company did not respond to try to help me correct the situation.
The Hornet is a molded plastic boomerang for kids. It is maybe $15. My own kids loved it when they were 10. It is not a hand crafted wooden boomerang from wood we import from Finland. It is molded in Australia by one of the great boomerang crafters of all time, Roger Perry, who has been Australian national champion 7-8 times. As a molded boomerang, it is almost impossible to somehow warp it in the manufacturing process. Every one of them is pretty much the same as the one before it, as in the ones 10,000 times before it. Any warp that could have happened might have happened from a severe collision with the ground or somehow in shipment but we ship them with stiff supports to minimize such things. We are sorry that you are unhappy with your purchase. We are closed until each afternoon now but I will attempt to process a return for you when we get in the office.
Returned to me easily, if you don’t like stuff that comes back it’s not for you.
I was under the impression that the boomerang I bough was a Colorado brand boomerang. Although the advertising made it look like I was buying a Colorado boomerang, it was in fact a Rang boomerang from an Australia! It’s a night time one and I haven’t thrown it yet.

The boomerang is so light that is flips in slight breeze. Doesn't return.
Come right back perfect
We absolutely love this boomerang! Now we see why it’s the big daddy.
Decent boomerang. Flies pretty well
The 3 lobe Red Bolt is my go to for outdoor fun. I have both left and right hand models. I named (R). lightning & (L) thunderbolt. I have the best place in the world to throw. 3 miles of white sand beach on the gulf coast. The sea breeze can be tricky when it gets over 5mph but when the breeze if just right I can tune in throws that travel a good 150+ feet out and back with a good strong throw. Always wear safety glasses. If you want to make single hand catches be active like you are going after a baseball, it will reduce finger and hand cuts which will happen on occasion. Lightly sand edges of new boomerang help reduce cuts too. Remember, it's fun like a toy, but it can come back at you fast so be ready catch or get out of it's way! Have Fun!
