Wrist Support Brace?

Recommended Posts

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.

    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
    • We had no problems but only brought 10 extra gallons over.  We fished 5 days, pretty much running wherever we wanted and ended with 7 gallons remaining in the boat.  So, we burned 30 gallons of fuel in a 1785 Lund with 90 hp Mercury 4 stroke.   I thought that was pretty good!
    • Seems to me that we are missing an entire page from this thread that was here yesterday.... what gives?
