Two Bladed Boomerangs
The Jaru Air Max Boomerang
Price: $5 or 3/$12 or 5/$16 or 10/$26; Availability: 75 RH


This traditional boomerang is made out of a soft rubber material. It has a reinforcing stiff core to add rigidity, similar to what Aerobie does with their flying rings. The boomerang is flexible enough to tune. You will want to add some dihedral before throwing and it does work if you don't throw too hard and if you give it spin. Multiple colors. Order one and it is my choice of colors. Order 3 and get three different colors.
Span = 34 cm ; Weight = 44 gm ; Range = 12-18 metres ; Age = 8+ ; Power = 5/10 ; Difficulty = 6/10 ; Right Handed Only

This is an excellent first time boomerang for throwers ages 12 and up. The Pro-Fly makes a great low cost gift. You will not find many wooden boomerangs that perform as well as this model.
