I do like the idea of her snaring flying objects. That sounds cool and could be cool as a visual in the movie. It makes her dangerous to flying objects even if she isn't flying.
Bola was, I thought, the singular of "bolas", but maybe there isn't such a thing.

A xiphos is the straight-bladed short Hellenic sword; the kopis is its curved, machete-like counterpart.
