A note about these ‘Slight second’ boomerangs:
We were very pleased to be offered the last stocks of original Scottish Davro boomerangs, all hand made in Scotland by the original owner of this long-established boomerang company. These included some rare and hard-to-get Davro models such as the wonderful Ash strip models which are no longer made, plus some earlier highly collectible Bakwood boomerangs. This collection of Davro boomerangs vary in quality, with many being ‘slight seconds’ or having odd art work. The quality of each model is described in each product listing.
Each boomerang of a particular condition will be different. The wood colour, imperfections and artwork may vary. Where appropriate our photographs will show a selection of the boomerangs of that type and condition and your order will be picked at random. Whatever the condition, you can be confident of receiving a very nice fully functional hand made returning wooden boomerang at a great price.
A guide to the abbreviations:
A1 – Perfect, as new quality.
A2 – “Slight Seconds” with some minor flaw or imperfection on the wood or workmanship. These flaws are usually very slight – Davro (Scotland) had very high standards of quality control!
A2 Odd Artwork – as the name suggests, slight seconds and the art work on these is different, wrong or was a promotional item.
A2 No Art – slight seconds and the boomerang ‘blank’, with no artwork or motifs. Ideal if you want to add your own art or paintwork!
R/H – Right Handed (Droit / Recht)
L/H – Left Handed (Gaucher / Zurdos / Canhotos / Links)
IMPORTANT! Please note that these Davro boomerangs are unsuitable for children. This is because they are large and heavy and can cause injury. Please read the instructions that are attached to each Davro boomerang: throw these with great care; the wearing of safety gloves is highly recommended when catching.
Breakages in use are NOT covered by any warranty. Boomerangs can break; it does not mean they are faulty! Once it has been thrown, if it breaks - even on the first throw - we are not able to refund you.
All the boomerangs we sell will need tuning to make them perform properly. Tuning a boomerang involves gently bending and twisting the wings to change the flight characteristics of the boomerang. Without tuning it is unlikely that your boomerang will return or fly correctly. It is best to regard a new boomerang as a ‘blank’ which will need tuning to make it fly. You will need to regularly re-tune your boomerang. Tuning the boomerang is part of the challenge and part of the fun! There are plenty of good resources on the internet about this – just Google “tuning a boomerang”.
Boomerangs can be dangerous. Do not throw near people or animals. Do not use in strong winds. Never lose sight of your boomerang when it is in flight. Do not attempt to catch a boomerang that is flying at eye-height. The use of gloves is recommended for catching especially when learning. We accept no responsibility for damage or injury caused through the use of a boomerang. Please play with care.
Boomerangs can break or be damaged if they hit a hard surface. This includes hard ground such as dry or frozen soil. Even a small stone buried in soft ground can break a boomerang if it dives into the soil and hits it. Ideally, throw your boomerang over a soft surface such as grass or sand, away from trees, bushes, rocks or other obstructions. Ensure you have adequate space for the boomerang flight.
