what wrist support do you use?
« on: October 11, 2004, 05:15:17 AM »
for people that use wrist supports. what ones do you like?

I've been using a robbys revs I. I don't really like it though kinda pokes my wrist in the side near the strap. Been thinking about trying a storm xtra hook or a strong arm plus.

thanks

Hmmm, I'm using something called the Mecha Tector. It isn't approved by PBA, but it's been serving me pretty well.

I use the original cobra. Tried the strong arm plus but just never got the feel for it. Have a large right hand one to get rid of if interested let me know.

Thanks, cooksey

I like the Robby's Pro release with the full finger support. It takes a little getting use to at first but after using it a while it becomes almost un-noticeable while it's on. I do take it off when shooting at the 10 pin, but some people are ok leaving it on and using a plastic ball.

As far as wrist supports go this is a very good one and easy to use. Although the P.R. has the ability to be adjusted for a better cupped wrist position for more turn, I find that the flat or first notch works very well on just about any conditions. The material is top quality and long lasting and unlike some other devices it doesn't seem to loosen up during use.

Hope this helps.

I use a Moro Pro Release extended and like it alot. I has a Robby Revs II but found it to be uncomfortable. The Pro Release is more comfortable, is rebuildable, and the forearm pad is adjustable for a better fit.

I tried a bunch of them including the Mongoose and none could match up to my Moro Extended Pro Release of which I have used for 4-5 years. About 2 months ago, a friend of mine that doesn't wear a wrist device, for whatever reason bought a Robbys Rev II, tried it for 2 games and he didn't like it so he didn't use it. Since my Pro Release is getting so old and worn and in need of a new repair kit (kit approx. $17 and shipping $8, total $25) I tried his Robbys Revs II. After 3-4 games I thought I would like it, so I asked him how much he would sell it for and he said $20. I couldn't turn down a $49 Robbys Revs II plus $8 shipping, total $55, for $20, so of coarse I bought it knowing I could get my $20 back anywhere if I didn't like it. This was even cheaper than the repair kit for my Pro Release.....It turned out that I now love the Robbys Revs II, so that is what I now use.
