from Nick Citoli, WR holder MTA 100, 2 minutes 19.1 seconds.
“Throwing a MTA and getting a good time is really three parts skill and seven parts luck. The skill is being able to throw, track and catch it. And all the luck depends on how much the wind gods want to mess with you! When you are throwing most MTAs want to be thrown high, hard and vertical with as much spin as you can give it. Once it is in the air, probably the most important skill to have is being able to track it as it sets up and begins to descend. You always want to set up down wind of a MTA, as it is easier to run up to catch it, than it is to catch it when it is drifting away from you. When catching the MTA, it is easiest to “sandwich” it between your hands, one palm up and one palm down. Again it is best to have the boomerang flying into your body, that way in the event that you bobble it, you have the ability to trap it against your body.”
