Looking for an atlatl to get started with? Professional Atlatl Hunter Ryan Gill, makes these sets as a perfect learning tool for those interested in the challenge of the atlatl. The set includes a hardwood thrower and two 6 ‘ long Rivercane darts (spears) affixed with metal practice points. The practice points can be heated and removed later to install glue-on metal hunting points if desired. These are perfect for learning the mechanics of the atlatl, hunting small game, but a bare minimum for hunting deer sized game (with a metal broadhead). For big game hunting, I highly recommend the HuntPrimitive Hunter Atlatl with removable foreshafts. All my atlatls are made from natural materials, not milled lumber or dowelled shafts which plays heavy into the proper context of a primitive hunting weapon. This also helps with longevity of the spear shaft being absent of the grain run out of dowelled shafts.
The starter atlatls (shorter and lighter than the Hunter atlatl) are meant to teach control through the throw by utilizing a a softer more controlled release rather than a power throw for hunting.
