Jim Mayfield became interested in boomerangs in the mid 1980s. He travelled to boomerang tournaments to compete and collect boomerangs from other top competitors. Jim learned how to make his own rather quickly. He began manufacturing his own boomerangs at his Gunnison Colorado home in the early 1990s. A few years after forming Colorado Boomerangs, Jim sold his company to Richard Pollock-Nelson. Jim worked with Richard after the sale to make sure that the quality of Colorado Boomerang products remained high after his departure. Jim Mayfield was critically injured in a motorcycle accident on 11 October 1999 and died two weeks later at the age of 48, leaving a wife and four young children. Today, Jim's business is still thriving, even though Colorado Boomerangs is on its third owner.

This boomerang is the original " Hook " . It has two small lead weights in each tip and attractive art on the upper surface. Jim Mayfield's signature and the date of manufacture (8 October 1993) was written in blue ink on the underside. This weighted hook is an terrific flyer with a flight range of about 50 metres. After you throw it a few times, you will understand why the old original boomerangs are in such high demand. The current production manufacturing process does not capture the magic of the original Mayfield airfoiling and tuning. This one is in very good condition. It has a few light scratches and very light patina from handling. A wonderful sports boomerang and a great collectable.
