The technical details are impressive, but what about the price? The RAPTOR line of javelins is aggressively priced against competing models.
What is the distance rating of the Raptor? RAPTOR orange is an intermediate level javelin comparable to a 70m javelin for the 800g and a 50m javelin for the 600g. Two additional models the RAPTOR BLUE and RAPTOR GREEN are the beginner and advanced models (Fall 2016).
What makes the RAPTOR different from other javelins? There are many differences, first is the head of the javelin, it is a precisely machined part that is built to perfection, the very tip of the javelin has a replaceable stainless steel point that will not rust and has no parts that can come loose. The RAPTOR will never “rattle”. Other javelins use a cheap steel head that is dipped in nickle plating. Nickle plating chips then the steel rusts underneath.
Some manufacturers (OTE / Nemeth) have an aluminum head but they use carbon steel for their points. Carbon steel will rust! SPEARWERX is the only company in the world using stainless steel points.
What other features set the RAPTOR apart? All javelins are made with a stiff aluminum alloy shaft, the paint is put on electro-statically, tolerances are maximized, they are made in the USA, and… where else can you get your name, school, or logo laser marked on the head of the javelin? NOWHERE!!!
