Wow! Those are heavy duty wrist guards. I have protection for my knees and head. Now I have to get some for my elbows and wrists.

I am somewhat skeptical of their theory that the splint(s) need to have a controlled flex capability to limit anount of force travelling up the arm. At the prices they are getting for these though, I must assume they can afford to do their homework on the question well enough to validate their claim.

Oh boy, that's a long hiatus. I have contingency plans for such a thing. Hope I never have to use them but.... A couple of programming and electronics projects and some recommended reading. Now, if I could just eliminate the need for a job, I could skate and putter around on hobby projects.

Smile I want to add the elbow pads...lol!

I recently bought some Copper Flex wrist guards. They help. I don't skate sessions anymore and I would normally would not wear them, but since my freestyle coach advised the Wrist Guards, I came to the conclusion elbow pads would help when I jump and spin and fall...lol!

Sincerely,

Larry O

P.S. During Koffee Klutch skating sessions for people over 30 many ladies and guys where all sorts of protective gear including helmets.
