Nowadays, aircraft plywood (Q2), known as the hardest plywood, is the perfect material for producing high-quality boomerangs.
20 000 years ago Australian aborigines used to make boomerangs and killing sticks out of a hard and fiber-tight wood called mulga.
Since then, materials evolved and plywood was invented.
Like sandwich, Plywood is made of layers, or wood veneers, that are glued together, with adjacent plies having their wood grain at right angles to each other, which make it much stronger than a plain sheet of wood of equal thickness.
The correct choice of wood species is also an essential prerequisite for the quality of plywood.
Finnish birch is now the best species that is used to produce this type of plywood.
Therefore, aircraft plywood is perfect for making boomerangs, because it is made of numerous ultra-thin plies in order to keep plywood's thickness to a minimum.
Perfect thickness starts from 0.4 mm (8 plies) to end up to 0.5 mm (10 plies).
Of course, you can make your own boomerangs, although it is hard to find this type of material in retail shops... Cheer up ! It is soon to be shopped online !
Most of the boomerangs that you can buy on this page are hand-made by dedicated manufacturers.
Wood brings both strength and style to your boomerang.
When sanding the leading and trailing edges of your boomerang, the different shades of plies show and make your boomerang look very special.
Personalisation, whether it be ethnic, aboriginal or creative, gives the finishing touch to your boomerang before varnishing.
Not only will your boomerang be an effective leisure product, but it will also hang beautifully on a wall after training.
A wooden boomerang remains a beautiful thing to offer or to treat oneself.
The first boomerangs were made of raw wood. Aborigenes used mulga, a hard wood which is made of compact fibres ; it is relatively resistant but it performs poorly.
As plastic materials were created and the shapes of boomerangs evolved, high-performance boomerangs were produced for a good price and that made this special sport popular.
Many kinds of plastics are used to produce boomerangs.
Each plastic material has its own mechanical properties and density.
The main process to make boomerangs is to inject melted plastic at a high pressure into a mould that lies embedded in a matrix.
Many so-called boomerangs are made this way, but very few are of good quality and they often end up in supermarkets where they are sold as beach toys.
Our plastic boomerangs are not simple beach toys, but genuine sport equipment designed by the best world throwers !
Here is a short list of the main plastic materials used to produce boomerangs :
Polypropylene : It is the number-one material used in the production of boomerangs, commonly known as "PP" or "float" for LMIFOX. Its lightness makes it possible to produce boomerangs that are stiff and yet soft enough to be tuned (dihedral and angle of attack). The only drawback: Polypropylene must be kept away from the cold.
ABS : This plastic is harder, brighter, with a perfect finish. ABS plastic increases boomerangs' speed. The ABS coach boomerang is an excellent boomerang. An ABS boomerang will be steadier and will not warp. However, polypropylene feels softer than ABS plastic.
Polycarbonate : This plastic is less commonly used though it has interesting mechanical properties, since it is almost impossible to break ; indeed, it is the most resistant plastic of all. Still, because this plastic is heavier and denser, it is therefore more difficult to throw a polycarbonate boomerang.
For the last twenty years, new composite materials have appeared and enabled some boomerang lovers to design new types of items, much more effective and much stronger.
Ultra-stiff and very thin materials, like carbon fibre, make it possible to reach outstanding performance as in long distance events, whose world record is over 200 yards, and the Aussie round event.
These materials do not require enormous physical strength and are suitable for all.
Now let's make a list of all the most commonly used composite materials to produce boomerangs :
- Bakelite (phenolic resin)
To be more precise, the correct term is actually paxolin (layers of dark-coloured paper bonded with phenolic resin), an electrical insulator which is very stiff. It is available in various thicknesses and it is used for making Aussie round boomerangs, trick catch boomerangs and MTA boomerangs. Despite being slightly breakable, this great material is not very expensive and can produce very good boomerangs.
Coming as sheets of various thicknesses, this very dense material is perfect for the Aussie round event and the long distance event. It is made of fabrics or fibres mixed with epoxy resin and then hardened. Because of harmful dust particles, working this type of material requires a specific equipment. The ideal thickness is about 2 mm.
- Carbon fibre
Carbon fibre has revolutionized the world of boomerangs over the past few years. What was before only used by the industry is now popular and available to everyone. Even stiffer than fibreglass, this material is almost unbreakable and very beautiful design-wise.
Like fibreglass, carbon fibre comes as sheets of various thicknesses.
Watch out ! Be aware that you will need a jigsaw with a tungsten carbide blade to cut this type of material ; it is indeed an incredibly stiff material !
Before working all these composite materials, you will have to put on the appropriate work attire as well as a high-performance filter respirator to prevent breathing in harmful dust particles while cutting and sanding with an electrical file.
Over the past few years, uncommon boomerangs, made of EVA foam, have appeared ; EVA foam is available in various densities ; consequently, with a single mould, boomerangs of various weights can be produced just by injecting different kinds of foams and of course, this modifies flights eventually.
The process used for manufacturing foam boomerangs is hot forming. First, this consists in making a mould from a master copy. Then a roll of foam with a specific density and thickness is selected ; a piece of foam is brought into contact with the hot die whilst the hot punch descends into the die and shapes the part. The part is then held under forming pressure for a period ; the boomerang is now ready to fly.
Many gadget makers use this process to produce promotional foam boomerangs, but the quality is more or less high.
The boomerang world's forerunner of foam models is Eric Darnel and his famous Fun Fly. Others like LMI Fox followed; then the JBA designed the Skyrun.
The first foam boomerangs, such as the Fun Fly and the Gilimeno, were not tuned ; it is both an advantage and a drawback ; on the one hand, they suit both left and right handed throwers ; on the other hand, they need to be bent up or down constantly so as to fly correctly.
Then new models appeared, which were already tuned like a genuine boomerang. No need to know something about twisting motions; you unpack it, throw it and watch it fly !
Very often, we use foam models when initiating into the art of boomerang ; as a matter of fact, with a foam model, beginners do not fear to catch it ; it also shows safety characteristics and good educational methods. Furthermore, these foam boomerangs are almost unbreakable, which is another advantage. Little by little, they enable beginners to use stiffer models confidently as soon as the technical gesture is mastered.
There are 2 categories of foam boomerangs :
- Ultra-light foam boomerangs only to be used indoor, in a living room or a big room with absolutely no draught; indeed, these boomerangs weigh a few grams only, so the least breath of air would disrupt their path. As a rule, these small boomerangs have a limited range of 2 to 3 metres and that allows you to learn how to throw safely. They are suitable for 4-year-old children onwards. Our best-selling boomerang in this category is the roomloop. Lastly, they help you understand the effects of the dihedral and the angle of attack on a boomerang, which will make it easier for you to use outdoor models.
- Stiff foam boomerangs are made of a denser and hence heavier foam ; these can be thrown outdoor in small wind conditions ; they are always harmless. They have a range of about 8 to 12 metres and can be thrown in a gymnasium as well. The advantage of practicing in a gymnasium is that you can throw in any direction without taking care of the way the wind blows ; it is the perfect location to learn the technique.
Picture yourself throwing your boomerang at night !
How great it feels to see your boomerang spinning/flying in total darkness!
What will say astonished passers-by when looking at this strange UFO ?
Here is a selection of boomerangs with light for nighttime throwing :
Night boomerangs are made of translucent polypropylene containing an additive which can accumulate light and release it later on, what is well-known as "the glow".
Many children toys are made of this material.
All you need to do is to cast light on your boomerang with a mobile phone or a torch or a car light, for a few seconds, and then throw your boomerang straight away and see it flying. It is a sight for sore eyes !
But there are other ways of making your boomerang visible at night :
Sparkler candles :
As a rule, they are to be found on birthday cakes ; they make sparks like fireworks. For a spectacular light show, you just have to light a sparkler, tape it on your boomerang
and throw it straight off. Yet, be careful with this device that burns at a high temperature and sparkles for 30 seconds only.
Do not try to catch your boomerang or you may get burnt !
Now, everybody knows Cyalume technology.
Known as light stick or glow stick, now available in a variety of fluorescent colours, it is fun equipment used in parties.
This single-use translucent plastic tube contains isolated substances which, when combined, make light through a chemiluminescence for about 24 hours.
So, in order to illuminate your boomerang, tape on your boomerang those 2-inch sticks, which you will find in an outdoor sports shop's fishing department.
Led lights :
Miniaturization in electronics now makes it possible to attach, on your boomerang, ultra-bright leds working with adapted batteries.
This requires a few electronic skills, but it is easy to achieve and the result is long-lasting and effective.
What could be more beautiful than a v-shaped boomerang flying into the sunset ?
The v-shaped boomerang represents the original Australian boomerang.
The banana-shaped Australian boomerang has considerably evolved to become an ultra-effective item.
A v-shaped boomerang is made of 2 blades, often called "branches" by beginners.
In fact, it represents 2 blades tuned like an airplane wing. Each blade is tuned with a leading edge and a trailing edge. It is mostly the gyroscopic effect that allows the boomerang to return.
In the past, Australian-type v-shaped boomerangs had a wide-open angle and flew in the air slowly. This kind of boomerang is very pleasant to watch, but its effectiveness is limited for it is very sensitive to wind and hard to catch.
The peculiarity of a v-shaped boomerang is its central point of rotation in the air ; it means that when flying, it spins on itself and its central point of rotation is situated where there is no material.
Consequently, the more open the elbow of a v-shaped boomerang is, the harder it will be to catch.
The ever-attractive original Australian type of boomerang still exists; however, new shapes have appeared, which are much more effective, with a much narrower angle, and thus easier to catch and wind-resistant. V-shaped boomerangs made of wood or composite materials have made it possible for this category to evolve ; it must be said that this type of boomerang remains much more pleasant to watch fly than a three-blade boomerang.
During a championship, the majority of competitors use a v-shaped boomerang for the Aussie round event.
THREE-BLADE BOOMERANGS or TRIBLADERS
The majority of the boomerangs used in competitions are three-blade boomerangs.
Tribladers consist of 3 blades ; they are much easier to catch for their characteristic is to have a central point of rotation located in the middle of the boomerang, hence in the material.
The triblader is the perfect boomerang to start with, both suitable for children and adults ; it is the right compromise, because it is easier to throw, usually more accessible and easier to catch.
The flight of a three-blade boomerang is very impressive owing to its spinning speed, which makes it look like an airplane propeller. It is possible to tune some boomerangs to make them skim over the ground by bending down one or two blades (dihedral).
The easiest boomerangs to start with remain the tribladers.
A four-blade boomerang consists of four blades.
As a rule, this type of boomerang can be used for endurance events or speed events in windy conditions or else precision throwing events.
Four-blade boomerangs usually fly a little bit lower than other boomerangs.
Of course, you can modify its path by tuning the dihedral and the angle of attack.
There are few quality four-blade boomerangs distributed in shops ; most of them are used in championships and are designed by the throwers themselves.
With a few holes near the tips, four-blade boomerangs are awesome in strong wind conditions
BOOMERANGS FOR ADULTS / ADULTS' BOOMERANGS
Our boomerangs are all suitable for adults.
That's why you can find both children and adults' boomerangs together in one content ; as a matter of fact, adults can easily throw children’s boomerangs too !
Adults and late teenagers are much stronger than children thanks to more-developed muscles.
As a result, adults can use boomerangs that are a little heavier and that can resist stronger winds.
What should it be made of?
Whether it be polypropylene, wood or carbon fibres, everything is possible because most adults encounter no physical restrictions!
Polypropylene boomerangs offer good value for money whereas wooden boomerangs feature design first.
What shape should it be ?
V-boomerangs, tribladers or 4-blade design ?
Whatever their shape, our boomerangs are all tested ; all you need to know is that multi-blade boomerangs, like tribladers or 4-blade designs, are easier to catch.
BOOMERANGS FOR CHILDREN
The boomerangs shown on this page are highly suitable for children.
Nevertheless, adults can throw those boomerangs with ease too !
What are the characteristics of a boomerang for kids ?
Children from 4-year-old onwards are able to throw boomerangs. It may seem surprising, but it is true ! As a matter of fact, there are boomerangs that are especially designed for the youngest children, like the roomloop model and harmless and ultra-light foam boomerangs.
These types of boomerangs do not require substantial physical strength, only precisemobility as well as understanding and taking-in of the technical gesture/movement.
From 7-8 years old, a child, with help from an adult in the beginning, will manage to throw a wooden or PP outdoor boomerang that is stiffer ; still, it has to be designed in tune/keeping with the child's physical capability and morphology.
Thus, we are naturally inclined to favor a model suited for a child, i.e. a lightweight boomerang.
Which of a wooden boomerang and a PP model is better ?
Well, we advise you to choose the PP model because of its smooth/soft touch.
Stiff foam models are also highly suitable for children ; unfortunately, it offers low resistance to the wind / they are more subject to varying wind conditions.
A wooden boomerang remains a beautiful thing ; so, if you choose a wooden model, take a 0.3mm-thick one.
Which of a two-bladed or three-bladed design is better ?
Well, we advise you to start with a three-bladed model, for they are much easier to catch ! As a matter of fact, the rotating centre of a two-bladed boomerang is located into the void; that's why it is more difficult to catch, whereas the rotating centre of a three-bladed boomerang is at the centre/core of the boomerang ; therefore, it is easier to catch.
We advise you to help young children take in the right technical gesture.
Do not urge a young beginner to catch his or her boomerang from the very first throws. Instead, tell him or her to observe its flight in order to understand fully how it spins.
Then, try to catch it sideways using both hands in a clapping motion.
Make sure the child is not afraid of catching the boomerang. A light wind is ideal to start with.
