Diana NXS - 600g Javelin
The Nordic Diana NXS is an all-round javelin suitable for all conditions. The NXS – Next Generation Sharp tip is made for maximum lift in all wind conditions, making it a universal tip and more forgiving in side/ cross wind conditions than any other tip on the market.
This javelin is for intermediate to advanced throwers, who are achieving good distances but might not achieve the perfect release every time. With excellent aerodynamics and balance, but an intermediate skill level and stiffness, this is the javelin most often recommended for club and county level athletes looking to improve their performances.
Advance Tip Control
What is Advance Tip Control, it is our way to optimise moment of inertia of the javelin. The new ATC technology makes the javelin correct it self directly to the path you have thrown it in and the javelin will have less tendency to change direction while in flight. It stays on the path you have thrown it. The other biggest benefit is, that you will feel what direction and path the javelin will go already in the run-up.
Javelins are made to suit the different skill levels of the athlete's. If for example a beginner starts throwing with the expert javelin, the javelin will not perform how it was intended to perform.
Here's how Nordic rate the skill level.
2. Advanced beginner
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 is you are a less skilled thrower.
This is the difference between throwing an iron pipe and a fine tuned javelin. The two most driving factors when it comes to the cost of a javelin is the choice of material & fine tuning of the geometry. Nordic have invested a lot of time to find the best aerodynamics for the longest flight depending of the stiffness & balance.
Balance together with aerodynamics will decide when in flight at a given velocity the javelin will turn it's tip towards the ground. If your javelin has a tendency to land flat you should try a javelin with lower level aerodynamics and balance.
