- Mar 11, 2001Ian,
For a really good primer on the physics of the atlatl, pics of all kinds,
and a good intro to the sport, try www.atlatl.com. Bob Perkins, known as
Atlatl Bob, sells his weapons at Pennsic and usually has at least two intro
classes each year. They are trickier than they seem, but a good thrower can
reach better than 100 yards with a dart several times heavier than an arrow.
