The QuadStar is an experimental model we developed using 3 mil wood. The concept was for kids who have an arm which is just not strong enough to get a full return with a regular boomerang. It's colorful and it's easy to get a good return but you need to be careful with it as it is not as durable as normal. That's why it is priced to sell! A 20 yard flight pattern in light winds are ideal.
