I hate when this happens.


Last night I stayed late at the gym to shoot the final javelin training video to finish up the javelin training series. The video came out great.


Unfortunately when I got home the video file was corrupted and I could not upload it to my laptop to edit it and put it on YouTube.


So you will have to wait until Friday to get that final javelin training video. Sorry about that. Out of my control.


Luckily, I received a great javelin question last night by e-mail from Doug Roby on javelin care and maintenance. Doug had a javelin bend and was wondering if it was still OK to throw.


Check out the video below to learn more




Javelins are very tough to make. They are made to exact specifications and tolerances. If a javelin gets really bent out of shape or the tip gets smashed, it’s time to buy a new one. If the tail gets a little bent or the tip gets a small dent, you can still throw it with little or no negative impact on the flight of the javelin.


This was a great question. I never would have thought of this if Doug hadn’t asked me by e-mail.


If you have throwing questions, please let me know and I will get them answered here on the site or on Facebook for you. So ask away!
