Challenger III :: Volker Behrens
Download the print size image here.

Material: paxolin 4mm or glassfiber/epoxy composite 4mm

Distance: 100-150m

[1997] The world record was held with this boomerang (paxolin) by Michel Dufayard. I (Lorenz) use the composite material, although it becomes rather heavy (170g) in the end. The Challenger III and variations are commonly used in LD tournaments, and I have always seen boomerangs similar to the ChallengerIII in the best scores. But it is not a rang for beginners as it needs stable throwing parameters. But if you manage to throw a properly weighted Challenger III, it will go far !

[2001] The reign of the Challenger III and Challenger type boomerangs (FullPower, Straight Shooter, Far, etc.) ended with the advent of competitive LD boomerangs derived from the MegaQuirl, i.e. Buzz Whip and Voyager type shapes. Being smaller and lighter, these are much easier to throw and handle and perform much better, and it is not unusual that beginners attain more than 100 or even 120 m on their first tournament.
