Can I use it with the Grippy Glove?

I asked if it would work wearing a bowling glove and was told-
"Absolutely...you may have to trim one product or the other...or not. Every hand is a little different."

When I saw this, I thought of the old Steelfingers.

I have bad tendonitis in my bowling hand, especially in my middle, ring, and pinky, and this is after I had trigger finger surgery back in Nov 18.  The only thing that will help with the pain and swelling is to stop bowling.  I've tried Steel Fingers, but the pain and weakness is so bad that I had to quit for the rest of the league season and I'm doing a lot of physical therapy and rest.  Hopefully it'll get healed and I can return next season.

I've had my share of injuries from bowling. I'm 37 years old. 6 years ago I tore a ligament in my wrist. I now have a bone missing, two screws and bone fusion to put my wrist back together. Two years ago, I had problems with my middle finger and now have a lump at the base of my finger, my tendon also makes a snapping sound once in awhile when I bend it at the tip of the finger. Went to the doctor yesterday and was told I have tendinitis in my ring finger. I love to bowl, just trying to figure out how to do it pain free without giving it up.

Lief...   Change hands.  It's possible and probably much cheaper and easier than chasing all these quick cures.   The change is much easier than you think with two hands

I figured for a $30 why not try it. I tried throwing and the first three balls I threw hurt my finger bad. Then I put on the Bowling Fingers and the pain went away surprisingly. By the 3rd however my palm and wrist started to hurt and I could barely put speed on the ball. Not sure if the device put strain on the rest on my hand or something I have to get use to because it is a little different feel to have this on. The back of my knuckles lost some skin from it so I'll use tape the next time I try it.
