Description


The wirlki is a unique throwstick, prized by collectors for its exotic beauty. The hook on the back, known by the Warlpiri as "langa" or "ear," provides an excellent weapon when made from a tough material such as black polycarbonate, as we are using. It's a powerful choice as a close quarters fighting weapon, with trapping characteristics similar to a tomahawk. Most examples tend to whistle slightly in flight. A very beautiful piece of pre-historic aeronautical engineering to watch in action! The wirlki delivers a uniquely powerful blow for its weight. Its flat, nose forward flights deliver deep penetrating blows. The added weight in the head and half fluted grip seems to provide an increased feel that enhances accuracy for many throwers. It is less forgiving of weak throwers than the central desert designs because it likes to be thrown hard to maintain lift. This model is particularly useful to take into the forest to use as a hiking tool, to silently make one's way through thick brush. It acts as an extention of the arm and clears spider webs, branches, etc.., so the traveler can safely pass through. This one is expensive to produce and our prices reflect that cost, but for the right application this is a beautiful and awesome choice. One of our favorites!




Reviews


I recently purchased every item on the Throwsticks.com product range and couldn't be any happier. Ben and Carol were both a pleasure to deal and made everything very easy for the delivery of my order to Australia. The products themselves are exceptional in quality and craftsmanship and very professionally made. They all perform exactly as they were intended and I have had many enjoyable hours of throwing with many more to come!

________________________________________________________ I have now purchased 2X hunting Boomerangs, one directly from you and one from Survival Supplies Australia (An Australian distributor of our products) - (Who I must give a shout out to as the best online retailer I have ever purchased from and Dennis always provides excellent customer service and support and has an amazing website - a great choice if you want an Au distributer etc.).

Living in Australia it was an unusual choice to purchase an ancient Australian artefact based product, made in the US. But the promoted quality, performance, consistency, reliability and pricing was very appealing and I thought worth the investment/ risk.

I have not been disappointed and quickly purchased a second Boomerang and am very impressed in all areas, especially the performance, accuracy, feel and look- must people think it is hardwood and not polycarb. I dedicate a lot of time to Bushcraft and outdoor living/ hunting skills and have enthusiastically added your hunting Boomerangs to my practice and survival skills kit and are a lot of fun.

I now have the Long Hunter and the Wirlki and look forward to throwing others in the future.

Many thanks and keep up the great work.
