Polanik precision-engineered stainless steel shot which are turned on the whole surface and then sanded to finish.   These are crafted with carefully balanced aerodynamics to achieve the longest possible distances.

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. 

Comes inclusive with a Polanik carry bag.
