World Steel Shot (includes smallest diameters)
The World Steel Shot is turned to a specific diameter and painted. Due to the density of the material it is often available in a wider range of diameters than other shot - ideal for athletes with smaller hands. All World shots are suitable for use in competitions up to UKA (national) rules, and some weights have been certified by World Athletics for use in international competitions.
