Javelin Nordic Viking 600g and 800g
Nordic Viking is a solid javelin designed for training and competition; made of metal alloy. Recommended for the throwers who in need of more forgiving javelin.
Approximate Distance Ratings:
- 600g = 50m
- 800g = 60m
Flex Ratings range from 12.1 to 6.1 (the higher the flex rating the softer than javelin)
800 gram = Flex 10.4
600 gram = Flex 11.1
The stiffer the javelin, the less it will flex/vibrate in the air and will result in less air drag. The down side is that it puts a lot more strain on the upper body.
A soft javelin flexes/vibrates a lot, which can also be a very good thing if you are less skilled thrower.
