Hand crafted from tough, black polycarbonate
Approx. 580mm/22.875" x 315g/11.1oz
Potential hunting range out to approx. 30-50 meters for skilled throwers
Total travel distance of approx. 60-85 meters / 65-93 yards (individual results may vary)
Fully ambidextrous and can be thrown by either arm for different effects. Recommended to be thrown by trailing arm.
Universal tapered "ice-pick" grip to accommodate almost all throwers. Strong grip strength recommended for best results.
Mid wing grip area is a useful dig/carry handle and aids in secure belt carry retention
Vertical knife style throwing possible but watch for bounce back as with a throwing knife.
Ideal for short range small game hunting and target throwing
Ideal when space is limited, and as a multi-tool
Not a long range kylie. Loses energy to drag at longer ranges, which keeps it in a smaller area.
The Stinger is our entry level hunting boomerang. It is designed to be a last ditch survival tool for short range small game hunting, clearing brittle brush and digging. One tool to do it all....
Lacking many of the aerodynamic refinements and ergonomics of our higher end models, but in exchange, featuring sharply pointed ends..., the Stinger is a formidable flying weapon for those who are limited on space or who are looking for a multi-tool backup weapon to add to their kit.
Shorter range sticks are less likely to hover out and be lost in the distance, and so possibly more ideal when targets are presenting very close up or when working in darker environments. Being short in length, it's also an excellent choice for tight spaces in the forest where a longer stick can become entangled in brush.
The Stinger is fully ambidextrous and it offers a variety of throwing options and techniques to master. From vertical knife like throws at short range, to horizontal throws held by either arm. The trailing arm hold offers more float at lower speeds and is our recommended technique.
A smooth and accurate release from the tapered grip allows for fantastic accuracy for strong hands, but retention is more difficult than with other models for the same reason. Concentrating grip strength towards the smaller fingers which are wrapping around the tip of the stick allows for best results.
As our entry level model, the Stinger is not a long ranged kylie. It will not magically retain energy and level flights for extreme ranges like some of our other models. But if you are working with limited space, limited budget, or want a kylie as a backup to your other gear, then this is a great multi-tool to acquire.
In the video we show the Stringer being used to aid in climbing. It has proven to be very effective at this but please note that there are dangers to this and we do not recommend this practice. The pointed ends can create a stabbing hazard, climbing is inherently dangerous, and it should not be relied upon to navigate difficult terrain or as a reliable earth anchor. Also because of the pointed ends, this is not the recommended stick to take while on horseback or running, as a falling incident could prove injurious.
I received my first Stinger from you and love it! In fact, I love it so much I just ordered 2 more for my nephew's birthdays at the end of the month. I want to thank you for making a quality product. That is such a rarity these day. I can't say mine will ever be used for the original purpose of hunting. However both of my nephews are young bucks in The Boy scouts. One of them is working on his Eagle Scout. They will definitely put these Stingers through the paces! May you, your family, and your business know the blessing and prosperity of the Lord.
Thank you again for your blessings of a great and fun throwing stick!

Not my first stinger but a I really like the stinger & it’s versatility. I take it on almost all my hikes. I’ll toss it for fun; but I end up using it a lot for climbing in mud, snow & steep places.

I've used my kimberly stingers daily since receiving them and am thoroughly enjoying each and every throw. They are real tools and great fun besides. No part of any claims made by Ben about his products fall short of the mark, every word truth, his is quality craftsmanship and a heritage product, take care of these sticks and pass them on to future generations.

Love it! The Kimberly Stinger flies straight and true and hits hard!!
A lot of fun to throw and I should have bought two or three as that would
mean less walking to the target.
