OTE Carbon 1 600g Javelin 5.4 flexOTE
OTE Carbon 1 600g Javelin (Womens). Gill Athletics is privileged to announce our exclusive partnership with Countervail to create the world's most technologically advanced javelin. The OTE Carbon 1 Countervail provides up to a 40% quicker damping rate which results in longer flights with minimal vibration.
The Carbon-1 is designed after the world-record setting OTE Legend Tailwind javelin, and rooted in a patented design by the inventor of modern javelins, Dick Held. Featuring a flex of 4.4 (800g) and a Flex 5.4 (600g) with thicker grip cord for more support and control, this javelin will behave similar to old-rules javelins and appear to "float" when thrown clean.
- Flex 5.4
- Improved thicker grip cord
- Quickest dampening rate

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.
