What Is A Throwstick?
To answer this question, let's first start with what a throwstick is not.... A throwstick is not a type of boomerang. Rather, it is the weaponized father of the boomerang. Unlike the curved flight path of the boomerang which are useful only as a decoy or for amusement, a throwstick delivers straight, level, hovering flights to extreme ranges where it delivers a tremendous blunt force impact to a target. As the primal hunting/survival/multi-tool dating back from ancient civilizations on at least five continents, the throwstick is mankind's first true flying wing.
Throwsticks were used to hunt waterfowl in ancient Egypt where they were later discovered by archaeologists in the tomb of Pharaoh Tutankhamun. They were used effectively by the American Indians to hunt rabbit, coyote, and occasionally even deer. In the continent of Australia they were refined to the pinnacle of advanced hand thrown flight technology by the Aborigines, who used throwsticks to hunt emu and kangaroo at ranges out to 60-80 meters and even beyond. The Aborigines called their long range hovering missiles by various names in various regions, but most famously the Australian throwstick is called by the name "kylie."
