Trying out our new throwing axes
After using the shop’s axes for a few weeks now, we decided to try to increase our chances with a little consistency in what we are throwing.
I first purchased an axe directly from the WATL called “The Butcher”. This thing is a beast, and I quickly named it “Thanos” of course, or “Θωτος” in Greek. Ali’s been really into Greek mythology recently so it seemed fitting.
I also purchased a WATL “Completion” thrower for Ali, as it was described as the perfect axe for the beginner. After receiving the axe we found that it was way to heavy for most younger throwers so we decided to name this one “Brick” (“Τουβλο” in Greek) as it’s built big and strong.
While we were at the shop trying out the new axes, one of the instructors had Ali try one of his smaller lighter axes which she loved so much we convinced him to sell it to her. She named this one “Cheese” (“Τυρι” in Greek), but I’m still not sure where she came up with they name.

Well, even though the heavier “Composition” axe didn’t work for my baby girl, I’ve found that I really like it for a hitting kill shots, although consistency on those shots are still developing. 🙂
I have to say, it’s nice to be doing something new in this crazy time of having so much taken away from us. It’s fun spending some family time outside the confines of our home. Can’t wait to try these new axes out at the next league night.
