Gill Athletics OTE Men's Javelins

The performance potential of OTE javelins is unsurpassed, being used for numerous championship wins and world records. Headwind (H) is typically used by power throwers who make up for lack of technique with strength and torque. Tailwind (T) is typically used by "finesse throwers" who make up for lack of power with technique

All OTE javelins are made with precision to the closest tolerances allowed by the IAAF. 

Features Of The OTE Javelins

  • 800g
  • Tailwind or Headwind Tips
  • Tip - Metal
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.
