This javelin comes with a cord grip that feels more like a standard javelin grip, but that will soak up water just like the grip on a standard javelin. It’s really a matter of personal preference. This javelin meets the USATF specifications for the “Aerojav.”
PLEASE NOTE: ALL ORDERS PLACED BETWEEN OCTOBER 14TH AND OCTOBER 24TH WILL SHIP ON OCTOBER 25TH. IF YOU NEED YOUR FINNFLIER SOONER, PLEASE CONTACT: 4THROWS.COM or VSATHLETICS.COM.
Designed by Finnish Olympic Javelin Champion Tapio Korjus, this safe javelin is light (450 grams), flexible and easy on the elbow and shoulder.
Watch a video comparing the flight of the Finnflier™ to the flight of an 800-gram javelin.
Throwers who need to train for good javelin flights love the Finnflier’s revealing flight characteristics – the differences between good and bad flights is obvious, and the thrill of “catching” a nice flight is encouraging and fun. Durable, and with just the right dimensions and balance, the Finnflier® has a “feel” that transfers to the men’s and women’s javelins seamlessly.
Getting enough throws in training to really master the javelin flight can be a problem with regular weight javelins. But by first throwing the Finnflier® to find the best flight line without straining the arm, then switching to the regulation weight javelin, the thrower can get a sense that good flights are within reach.
