Barnaby Ruhe is one of America's most famous boomerang throwers and Barnaby is a strong competitor. Barnaby is a graduate of the Naval Academy (Oliver North's classmate) so he is naturally gifted in competition strategy. Barnaby was involved in the earliest days of American competition and he has a good pedigree with Uncle Ben Ruhe and cousins Peter and Larry Ruhf as family members. Barnaby is still involved in competition. He was on the International Team that competed in Japan in 2006, a full 25 years after his first international competition when he was a member of the American Team that beat the Aussies at their own game in the 1981 USA-Australia Challenge Match.
This omega was collected by Max Hoeben in 1979. An early omega design called the Saluky and with a flight range of 30-35 metres. Looses spin at the end of the flight. This was one of Barnaby's strategies for making a boomerang that was easy to catch upon the return in competition. Has narrow blades and it is painted on both surfaces. Has a Max Hoeben collection tag on the underside. Some wear to the paint from use, but still in very good condition.
