Description


​Inspired by a unique S.Western 1870's rabbit stick in the Gary Broadbent collection which featured an interesting flat/angular airfoil. Gary generously gave me the privilege to handle, study and trace this rare and beautiful throwstick. I worked with the original design at first, but eventually decided to make a few changes including adding elements I had found in other historic American throwsticks and enlarging the stick somewhat. The final result is a beautiful chisel pointed style throwstick that has nice straight flights out to 65 meters / 70 yards and sometimes much more. This design requires a good spin for best results, but due to it's lighter weight and good balance, this is easy to achieve. It is best for targets or hunts at 60 meters range or less. Although it has a definite performance edge on the Kimberley Stinger, it should not be considered a long ranged hunting stick like some of its Australian design based cousins. Despite it's capacity for up to about 90 meters total distance, it doesn't retain full energy that far into the field. At short to mid ranges it is a lot of fun and performs very well. A durable stick in rough environments and a great value for the beginning thrower, the short ranged hunter, or the budget minded survivalist.




Reviews


"As a lifelong primitive technologist, I was aware of the place of the throwing stick in history. Working in Museum Anthropology for the last 25 years allowed me to see original artifacts from around the world including ethnographic throwing sticks from the American Southwest and Australia. It wasn't until I discovered the work being done by Throwsticks.com, that this technology came alive! No longer a dusty old museum artifact behind closed doors, the throwing stick is now a magical work of art and science. Finally, this technology is getting the spotlight and recognition it deserves for its important role in human history. Now all people have access to this part of our shared heritage. Thanks Throwsticks.com, for bringing this skill back into the light!"
