The Hannibal can perfectly suit a beginning competitor for Fast-Catch & Endurance events. As its main asset is to slow down in the very last yards of its flightpath, making it very easy to catch.
It remains my privileged choice in tricky weather conditions, like there were at Vierzon 2007: a mild wind, but whirling. Furthermore, it can tolerate a moderate wind.
The pattern can be found in the FBF Newsletter #95.

Who could tell me what this boomerang’s name refers to?
Beware, there is a trick...
It is NOT a very bad character from novel & cinema, but -at the total opposite- a very kind being... :)
September 1st 2008:
49 catches achieved (on 50 throws, one dropped) at Lausanne, on August 31st 2008
September 12th 2009:
With many holes at the center & on wing tips, it becomes a good boomerang for Accuracy (76 points achieved at European Cup Lausanne 2009, in a tricky wind)
