Flexmeter for Roller Derby!
Thanks for the prompt reply. If you could work out a replacement puck that would be amazing. I purchased the flexmeter guards after reading about them on a derby forum that was specific to arm and wrist injuries.
My old guards are the cheaper triple eights that cover only past the wrist with a thin sliding guard on the palm. They served me well in derby but then I had a fantastic crash into the concrete bowl at our skate park this past October and though I had all my gear on, I still managed to break both the radius and ulna. I believe it was because I came down on my palm, below the thumb, missing the protection from the sliding guard.
Fortunately, the flexmeter puck covers more of my palm and the dorsal guard has been amazing at preventing hyperextension of the wrist during a pile up as well as giving support for the many burpees our cross fit coach lays upon us. I have been recommending it to my teammates as I am the only one on the team with them, but the price really holds them back. The rest of our gear is so expensive and since roller derby is skater owned and operated, we pay a lot towards the production of our bouts and just keeping the league rolling – literally!
Yet none of the girls have had a wrist injury like I have and paying the $70 versus another several thousand dollar hospital/surgery bill seems worth it to me! Other than the price, in terms of these for derby, the straps do come unhooked often because of all the scrapping happening within packs (I have the small size). Only when we scrimmage and bout do I need to duct tape them down but in drills that don’t require hitting and breaking through a pack then they stay put. That could be a downside for some but it is really nominal and easily remedied with duct tape.
Okay, sorry for the long email. I do love these guards and turned down a trip to the skate park this morning because I did not have the puck and did not feel safe with my old guards. Well, that and I still have a little stage fright since the breaking incident! Thanks again for the prompt reply. I will email again on the 20th as a reminder. All the best for the remainder of your trip and safe travels.
