This long distance boomerang was made out of 3 mm Paxolin in 1991 for Volker's personal use. This boomerang was part of his throw kit at the time of his death. It is painted bright colors on the upper surface and fluorescent orange on the underside. The dingle arm has a finger notch and the lift arm has a single embedded lead weight. The flight range is more than 100 metres. I have seen Volker throw this model for more than 125 metres. It is in very nice condition with no damage, only light wear.
Volker Behrens was a well known commercial manufacturer of sporting and competition boomerang products. Volker was also a competitor and a member of the German International Boomerang Team. Volker was a pioneer in the development of long distance boomerangs and he demonstrated throws of 150 metres in the 1980s with his popular Challenger III Paxolin Hook. Volker made the last of his boomerang products in 2011 and he died in June, 2012. His boomerangs have become great collectibles because they are considered to be comparable to boomerangs made by Herb Smith.
