Boomerangs, anyone?!

This is my trusty returner. Pretty crude Taiwanese made, 5-layer light plywood, 87 grams, 45cm tip-to-tip (shown with Wenger Soldier for size comparison). I've re-profiled and sanded its wing airfoils and tips, varnished with 2 layers of acrylic, finely sanded and polished again to improve aerodynamics. Returns if thrown correctly (decelerates and hovers before touchdown, which is great). Requires a circular free space of approx. 60-70m in diameter to be thrown safely (unfortunately not safe for city parks, considering its range and weight). Broken 4-5 times upon hard landings or close encounters with tree branches, and always meticulously repaired with epoxy glue and car body filler. Weighted once, but returned to original state (marks are still visible where the weights were placed). Been lost in a large oak treetop once, but recovered - I can't afford to let it go, not many good boomerangs for sale over here.

Any boomerangers here?

Very nice! Smile
I have one from I am child but I have never been able to make it work Sad hehehe. It's completely made of wood.
I am not sure whether this thread would fit better on "Other projectile weapons". Boomerang is not a projectile weapon but it can be a weapon. What do you think about it?

Although it can be used as a weapon, I would never use it for that purpose. Unlike toy boomerangs, this one is heavy and flies very fast. I would not like to find myself in its flight path, hehe
