Wrist Support Brace?

8 posts in this topic

Alright guys. I have a wrist (casting arm) that's been giving me problems when spending a long day on the water throwing lures. I played Soccer all through college as a Goalkeeper and my wrists have a history of acting up after a few hours(Surgery doesn't always make it feel better). I'm in my mid-20's so I feel like this type of thing shouldn't slow me down....yet! wink

What do you guys with wrist problems use that help aide fatigue while casting?

Any recommendations would be great as I'm preparing for a week long trip to LOTW and don't want a wrist to stop me from catching some biggun's. Cheers.

Goto your local drug store or Wally world and look at the neoprene braces. They have them for wrists that will keep your wrist warm, tight and feeling good. Have a buddy that uses one and it works well for him. Otherwise, wrap that bad boy up in 100mph tape and drive on!!

When I had a plate in my wrist I was going through the same thing. One thing that helped a little was to make sure that my wrist was straight, and I was not trying to flick it on the cast. Once you do it a little bit and get used to it you will lose very little on your distance.

Makes sense, good idea tschultz. My problem is when I go into my figure 8 and adjust my hand position on the reel. Ah, the first signs of getting older... grin

I am also in my mid 20's and have had wrist problems. I have them on my left side. I have worn one of those braces on and off for years and they sure help when you wear it for a couple weeks but then you go without for a few days and it starts acting up. I can see where running a figure 8 would be a problem, they are desighned to somewhat imobilize it and keep it straight. I'm about ready to have the surgery but i'm notready for the 2000 dollar co-pay. If you have good insurance unlike my cheap company i would get it over while you are young and still heal easy.

My wrist kills me, i did a boxer break from a jack falling over on it while under a truck. I noticed while fishing on leech, it did not matter if I was out for an hour or the day, it would start acting up. I carry coband with me, the elastic type tape the docs and hospitals use now. Go to a vet supply and pick it up as if you buy at drug store or regular store it is about double from a vet. I wrap my everyday when working or using my hand alot. Get it fixed when you can, being in my late 40's my wrist and hands are the first to start bothering me when i do anything.

    • Money to be made, and the cold war (you remember the cold war, right?) was the reason we did various things.    Go read about Stalin and his successors to see why we were worried about the Soviet Union.   What we did might or might not have turned out like we hoped but that doesn't change what the situation was.   
    • Dave, your economist wants immigrants to meet requirements like posting a bond or having assets.  Why should they do that when they can just come in with nothing through the porous borders?   Isn't the argument about open borders vrs controlled immigration?   Would the 11 million undocumented have to go back home and post a bond?     If the US through its political process decides to allow immigrants, that's cool.    But that is not what we have now.   Better pick that mike back up.  
    • I'm still trying to figure out why we pushed the coup in Ukraine, other than to cause trouble of course.
    •   Ditto, almost exactly the same. I wouldn't spend a ton of money on decoys if your just starting.
    •   To tell you the truth. I have never cleaned a cottontail ever that didn't have flees all over them in the winter. So I just stop hunting them and went for Snowshoes which are bigger and never found flees on them, oddly?
    •   Seems the hares are down from when I was younger but the cottontails seem plentiful enough. I popped these with a 20 gauge shotgun while grousing
    • I use to go for Snowshoes a lot in the winter with a scoped 22. It was fun sneaking through the pines looking for them. See the little black eye and "bing".  Seems like they just fell off the face of the earth for many years so I just gave up trying for them. I'm sure with the big "Down with Fur" thing and not many taking out as many Fox and Yotes by trapping it really took a hit on the bunnies!  I wrote the DNR back a few years ago and asked them about it and he said: we really don't manage the Rabbits at all. And he gave me the old "Grouse BS". Their just at the bottom of their 10 year cycle!   Seems to always be their answer!
