It has become a tradition: For the 5th time in Besançon there was in indoor competition. Events were: Accuracy100, Fast Catch, Endurance 3min, Trick Catch50 and MTA.
Range was 14m, Bullseye with 0.8m radius.
-Allthough only 11 throwers took part, I was able to set some personal bests:
91p in Accuracy, 13.68 s in Fast Catch, 56 catches (1 drop) in Endurance and 13.19sec in MTA.
-To throw indoor is an excellent practise for the transitions in Fast Catch/Endurance: You win
these events rather with transitions under 1 sec than with low flighttimes: It's hard to reduce 2sec to 1.5sec flighttime per throw. But with a transition of 0.8 instead of 1.3sec you have the same effect. And in MTA I have a big advatage with my backhand throw using a balsa triblader.
-Accuracy is special too: Since the hall was only ca 8m high, a 100% return was hard to achieve! The flightpath has to be very flat. Additionally, your boomerang will slide on the ground after a bad landing. Some throwers took advantage of that and tried to have the first ground contact at ca 6m in front! Like a curling rock, the boomerang slided more or less into the precision points. My tactic was rather a soft landing at the 8points just in front of me without much sliding.
Here's a selection of my indoor boomerang bag:
MTA, 1.5mm Balsa Accuracy, 4mm plywood Fast Catch, Carlota, 4mm PP
3 pces glued together cambered edges! 3.8mm PP strongly cambered!
