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.

    • Well got the unit today first Impressions are I'm really happy with it...I like how the maps included have depth shading...The screen seems very nice...The only thing I don't like so far is the quick release bracket, I feel like I'm going to break it when I pop it off. The transducer is pretty darn huge, not sure if all side imaging ducers are like that or not...Overall very happy for $499, cant wait to get it on the water.
    • Hey you guys!...had to fly into Phoenix couple days ago to check on some golf stuff and while wandering through a big supermarket saw a display of Canadian pen-raised walleye.  It was 18.99 a POUND.   Can you believe that!?  A stinkin'  little 16 ounces of walleye for THAT much money. If a guy could put up with all that sloppy, soft wiggle-wiggle of a battle to boat one a guy could make a pile of money catching them.  Personally,  I'd fall asleep in a walleye hot bite.
    • What's kind of interesting is there were a few crab apples by my old work and they would eat some in the fall. But in the spring when they must get just ripe enough. It would be a pile on of Robins, Blue Jays, Squirrels and they would clean the trees in a few days. Like a good wine they must know when its time!
    • Hoo boy. I better get me booties on.

    • Hillary and whatever terminal illness she has did seem like a favorite fake news item for you, although I thought it was a close second besides that obama boner thing you really really wanted to see.

    • Shell is complete, had trouble finding a door luckily a guy had a camper door on hsolist that will be re-skined with the black .040 exterior siding.  The aluminum siding was supposed to show up yesterday, but dint for what ever reason and will be delivered on Tuesday.  Installed the bracing for 5 holes, HDPE on the skis will be in tomorrow to be installed hopefully next week also.  As you can see I built a ladder for the top bunk, I am assuming once the kids stop using it as a playhouse that area will be converted into storage as this is just a day house.  Any input would be appreciated.
