Can carbon MTA's detune?
Yes, although much less likely to do so than paxolin and wood. Like all boomerangs if you don't care for them (like for example chucking them in a box with loads piled on top), you are risking detuning them. We have carbon MTA's that are years old and perfect. The biggest cause of a detuned carbon MTA is heat! Keep out of direct sunlight when not in use & do not leave in hot cars!
Can I retune a carbon MTA?
We do not recommend this unless you totally understand what you are doing. Contact us first before you do anything. MTA's are retuned on the field using a gas blow lamp and there is a real skill just to do this and not damage the MTA. All MTA's are sent out working perfectly - it is highly unlikely they will detune in the post.
What is an MTA?
These are special types of non returning boomerangs used for a particular event in competition (or fun!). They are designed to fly for much longer than normal types of boomerang. Designed to be very light weight and stiff - they are perfect for carbon fibre construction. The MTA models supplied by carbonbooms are world class boomerangs that have many one minute plus flights reported.
What is an Aussie Round boomerang?
These are special types of returning boomerangs used for a particular event in competition (or fun!). They are designed to fly out to 50m and then to return accurately to the thrower.
Carbon boomerangs are quite expensive. Why?
Material is pretty expensive and it takes a few hours to make and test each boomerang. It is a skilful and intensive process resulting in some of the best boomerangs available.
