Finnflier® – Standard Grip: 450g

This javelin comes standard with a plastic grip that is easy to dry off in wet conditions, but doesn’t have the exact feel of a regular javelin grip. It’s really a matter of personal preference; we have customers who have thrown over 80m with this grip. This javelin meets the USATF specifications for the “Aerojav.”

Price: $79.99


Finnflier® – Cord Grip: 450g


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.”


Price: $99.99

More Information About the Finnflier®

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.

Do not throw the Finnflier® into a curtain; the tail might break. No javelin should be thrown into a curtain! Use throwing balls. I recommend the Flexible Throwing Balls sold by On Track.

For Women only, 400-700g, for Men only, 600-1.0kg.
Start light, work toward heaviest weights after a few weeks, then back to the regulation weights (600g for women, 800g for men) as the season begins. Throw the balls for strength, and throw Finnfliers™ outside whenever possible to learn best flights.
