  1. I am interested to purchase an excellent, usable set thrower, arrows, etc. Confusing to see 2007….as I hope atlatl activity, products, etc. is happening in 2013. For your interest: I am 70 years old, was a national javelin champ over 50 years ago. Throwing is natural for me and I can feel how throwing from elbow outward, using atlatl thrower, gives me great leverage for long throwing. I am far from great shape and I think I could throw an atlatl arrow quite far because the technology feels so natural/designed for a human hunter/warrior. I am also looking for land to buy in southern VT, so would love to find help with that and guidance for purchasing a functional set. Thanks, Tom @ 803-546-6800
