A yo-yo-like weapon was used in the Philippines to kill both people and prey from the safety of a tree. It was typically made of solid stone several times larger than typical modern toy yo-yos and was attached to a 20 foot rope. By the way, these ones wouldn’t actually return to the thrower. Omitting that feature on this yo-yo seems like it was a good idea.
