You can’t scale buildings with it or even fold it for storage in your utility belt, but the Returning Batarang Boomerang still looks like something fun to have because, unlike most batarangs you see in the real world, this one does more than sit on a stand and look pretty… although there’s nothing wrong with letting it simply do that.
As the name implies, this is a real honest-to-goodness boomerang, which means it takes some skill to use, so don’t think you’re just going to open the package, step outside, and lob this thing in the air, drinking a cup of coffee while waiting for it to return.
Handcrafted with 10 ply 5 mm finish birch, the almost 7-inch-long Batarang is an advanced returning boomerang for experienced throwers. If you’ve been looking for incentive to get the kids – or yourself – away from the computer to experience the great outdoors, practicing to use a Batarang might do the trick.
You can get a Returning Batarang Boomerang for $55 at Boomerangs by Vic. In addition to the Batarang, Vic has a wide assortment of boomerangs available, including a traditional boomerang for beginners… just in case you’re ready to start practicing.
