I would recommend this hammerReview by Wilson / (Posted on 7/19/2016)I bought this hammer to compete in masters events as the other 16lb Amber hammer I purchased for $50 was too big (too long as the ball was considered to be too big). This made weight and length and was the envy of the meet (2016 NY Masters Championship/Eastern Regionals). Wile you can't expect this hammer to be shinny forever, for the price, I would recommend this hammer.
Decent Price for Decent QualityReview by Yarbro / (Posted on 10/14/2014)The hammer is great. Perfect for someone who is looking for a decent hammer on a budget. While it's not the same quality as a Polanik Hammer this will work just as well and is far cheaper, the differences are minute for a beginning hammer thrower
