Stainless Steel Shot
A fabulous stainless steel shot, engineered to precision by Nelco.
Stainless steel shot have an extremely smooth surface, which will initially not take grip products terribly well. However, after use the surface becomes scuffed, improving the grip and creating a great surface texture, much loved by many athletes. Additionally, as there is no paint covering to chip, stainless steel shot are unlikely to lose weight, staying appropriate for competitive use for longer.
Not suited for use on very stony ground, as the stainless steel is softer than other types of shot and will therefore dent more easily.
Nelco has the largest range of sizes of any manufacturer, making it easy to find the perfect shot for your hand size.
