Velocity and impact please!

As a boomerang enthusiast for over 16 years, I would like to know the velocities and impacts of sport/returning plywood boomerangs (40m plywood, as well as the heavier 75m monsters) as they have caused me many injuries as well as "perfect catches" as I like to call them, (where you don't have to move an inch).Broken fingers, bruised forearms on windy days when it comes back like a bullet and even on those magical days when you slap down open palmed with one hand on to it and hope for the best and it works....perfect catch!
You know what I mean!
I studied biomechanics and physics at Uni so don't be afraid to hit me with science, just need some numbers as I don't have the required equipment in my kitchen.
Thank you, and long may we all keep chasing sticks!
