Chasing After The Worthless

Boomerang Stuck In Beach Sand

Have you ever thrown a boomerang? If you have, you probably know how difficult it can be to get it to return.

Most of the time it flies in the opposite direction you want it to. Never to return.

Sometimes you may be able to get it to hook and fly back to your hand. That’s probably very infrequent.

Your hope is that your throw will look something like this:

I recently purchased one of the Mantis boomerangs featured in the video above. My hopes were high that I would soon be throwing like these champs.

I was sadly mistaken.

On my first outing with the boomerang, I made a bad throw. The boomerang came out of my hand early. It flew fast and far. Then it started to rise higher and higher. Finally came the wicked hook into the 40 to 50 foot tall tree.
