The choice of elite throwers everywhere!
Both Men’s Carbon 1- 800gr. Headwind and Tailwind javelins have a 100m range and 4.4 Flex.
OTE Javelins are handmade in the USA but craftsman following the tradition of the legendary javelin maker- Dick Held. All OTE javelins are made with precision to the closest tolerances allowed by World Athletics.
A headwind version of an OTE javelin describes a streamlined tip designed to help cut through the wind. This javelin tip, because of its small surface area, will have self-correcting characteristics when a thrower misses the point, adding valuable distance to a missed throw. The headwind version is ideal for 'power' throwers who lack perfect technique but make up for it with strength and torque.
A tailwind version of an OTE javelin describes a thicker, more blunted tip that increases the surface area in front of the javelin. When a thrower hits the point with a tailwind version of an OTE javelin, it will mimic the old rules style javelins, with a beautiful floating flight and greater distances. This tailwind version is ideal for 'finesse' throwers who lack high outputs of power, yet throw at a high technical level.
