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.
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.
I don't often throw the hammer, but I bought this recently to compete in a big meet last week. No fewer than two other throwers, both quite experienced, asked to borrow mine, instead of using their own hammers. This hammer passed vetting for weight, length, etc (not always a given; my shot failed three weeks ago). The hammer comes with a comfortable handle and is complete with a wire (which is 38" long; with the handle, it is 42.5 inches). It makes for an awkwardly long box (all the weight is at one end of course), but I imagine the shipper doesn't want to put kinks in the wire.
