Boomerangs that stay in the air for minutes: High-tech!


Here's a selection of the carbon composite MTAs (Maximum Tima Aloft) I've made in the past 6 years.
One of the twobladers has been thrown by Arnaud Tribillon (F), to set a new world record in MTA unlimited - The boomerang stayed in the air for 3min 10sec!
But the development still goes on. In 2006 I was the first boomerang designer who created an equal winged 3 bladed boomerang that easily flies 25sec or more. Other than the twobladed MTA boomerang, the triblader is very easy to catch.
In competitions, these models are THE boomerangs to use nowadays for the MTA event. The twobladers with flight times of 35+sec especially in calm wind conditions, the tribladers to assure 25-30sec in medium to strong wind conditions. Overall, I've been making over 500 of these boomerangs during the past 6 years.

the 2-blader is great 14g! I added 1g lead-stripes into it and could throw it also in 7m/s wind. 38s is best time till now, but I will improve it

Hi Manuel,
I heard you have a mold for lefthanded MTA. Could I buy one?
I'm from the Netherlands and here people are not so much involved with boomerangs as the rest of Europe. And as a lefthanded trying to achive a glasfiber MTA nearly impossible. Would be very pleased if you could sell me one, and maybe other booms. Keep up the good work!

regards,

Harold

Hello Manu, how are you?
I'm from Brazil and were shown the world that last occurred here in my country.
I wonder where I can buy their boomerangs.
You sell directly or there is some representative?
Thank you for your attention.
