If Link had a real boomerang (GIF)

character-link-boomerangThe Zelda boomerang is great, just immediately useful. It stuns enemies, and swoops up items and money Link is too lazy to walk over and pick up.

It also follows an impossibly perfect return path, every time. Popular Mechanics notes the aspects to a good boomerang throw are lift, spin and precision–tricky stuff Link’s boomerang seems to just do automatically. So here’s a GIF showing what would have really happened.

I build handcrafted returning boomerangs of all shapes and sizes. I have recently built the ‘Gale’ boomerang and it has a wonderful flight.
So for a ‘REAL’ life Link I would have no problem doing what is shown in the game. On another note the creators of the game were way off on how it would have flow if thrown as shown in the game. Kinda comical but still fun.
If anyone is interested in seeing my boomerang videos I have all of them posted on youtube. My username is supergooddeal.
