Dang, hate it broke on ya.  I've broke a few too, never fun.  Sounds like you got a few good throws out of it though.  The lack of properly bent limbs is why I started making some out of the pvc, let's you get the tuning down too.  All you need is a heat gun, some pipe, and a way to squash it.  And if you break them it's a lot less time invested in it.  Good luck on the next one!

Thanks Aaron
I bet pvc pipes could speed the learning progress
I have an elm and a mulberry stick  roughed out but they are fresh cuts
in the meantime i read THIS very interesting article on tuning boomerang and throwing sticks
The main information is that the same angle of the foil profile gives very different results if applied to the first (attacking blade - the one you are holding at throw) leg or if applied to the following leg (in case of bent throwing sticks)
I totally ignored this information and now i can figure the behavior i experienced with my lifting stick
