Hand crafted Aboriginal throw stick by Roger Perry. Weighted and balanced.

Australian Decorated Throwing Stick

$99.95 USD

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.

great boomerang

A really cool boomerang. I'm a total beginner and was able to get it to return to me and catch it without taking more than a couple steps within 30 minutes of throwing it for the first time.

Works great. Can be difficult to see at night at times. Lots of fun

would not return

Could not get it to return. It was for my daughter and was a first boomerang for both of us, so it could be user error, but I have not been able to get it to return.

Decent

Not great quality. I purchased 2 boomerangs and they were completely different tolerances. Definitely not worth the price. Looks cool though, so theres that.

Works great!

I've only been throwing boomerangs for 3 months and have used 4 different models including the Big Man which so far is my favorite. I often throw in the middle of a football field which makes it easy to judge distance and the astroturf is easy on the rangs. It often goes out 40 to 45 yards before returning with the right amount of wind. Still unable to get it to come all the way back with no wind but being a newbie, haven't figured the technique yet. Last week the wind cought it and it slammed in to the aluminum bleachers 70+ yards away with a loud "ping!" I was worried I may have broken it but upon retrieval it only had a tiny ding less than a centimeter long which hasn't affected it's performance. It helps to tune the tip of the leading wing up in no or light wind conditions.
Thinking of ordering a lefty to save my right arm as I'm already addicted to the sport!

Had

Great gift. Looked really authentic aboriginal. Hope my grandson will persevere. Takes a little time to learn. Might order one for myself!

Beautiful boomerang!

Bought this for my son's 9th birthday and he absolutely loved it! It's the perfect size/weight for him and has great control. Very easy to use and the the craftsmanship is superb. Thank you!

Great boomerang

I love my “real” boomerang. It flies way better than the plastic boomerangs I’ve previously used.
