The Dahlia 55 is our shortest range hook. In general, hooks take a very laid out throw and have greater range than other styles of boomerangs. In fact, they are some of the most difficult styles to master. So we designed the Dahlia 55 with smaller weights and cruder airfoils to create an excellent "introductory" hook that flies far with a less-than-precise throw. Once you have mastered the D55, you will be ready to move on to longer range hooks and even true Long Distance rangs.
