Stiffness

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.

Aerodynamics

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

 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.
