Turbojav was developed by former world men’s javelin throw world record holder, Tom Petranoff. Turbojav teaches the basic fundamentals and mechanics associated with the javelin throwing event. The Turbojav was originally designed to teach beginner javelin throwers the same throwing fundamentals in a safe and fun environment. Our Javelin Games were designed to be used for not only for distance throwing, but also used for target throwing, and weak side throwing, Turbojav is also ideal for the more advanced athlete to use as a training implement to improve their accuracy and technique. They are made a special soft nose, non marking, which enhances the safety feature and allows it to be also thrown indoors. Our Turbojavs comes in various weights, from 300 grams to 600 grams. Elementary, Primary schools and Special Olympics use 300/400g. Middle schools and some high schools use 500 and 600g . Our 700g and 800g are for high schools, college, masters, elite and Unified Sports. Each Turbojav comes in a variety of vibrant colors, it also can be unassembled for easy transportation.
