Atlatl Flexibility Analysis Via Computer Modeling

Author(s): Dick Baugh

Year: 2002


J. Whittaker: “Extravagant claims made for increased dart velocity with flexible atlatl.” Uses computer model to show that to get 11% increase in kinetic energy, need to deflect the tip of the atlatl ca. 10 cm. [Possible with some very flexible atlatls.]
