cravinforcarvin hey just looking at the wrist guard thing.
i broke my wrist a couple of seasons ago. wearing wrist guards that were supposedly the best thing to wear.
I know a dude in the emergency room said that if your going to fall hard enough to snap a bone its gonna break regardless. the irony is that i wasnt wearing a guard on my other hand cause i couldnt be bothered getting it under the glove that morning

Yep, and usually the harder you fall too. I'm retarded for NOT wearing wrist guards, considering I broke mine about 15 years ago in Quebec. When I got my girlfriend into the sport two years ago they were the first things I suggested she buy. Can't take my own advice = break my wrist(s) again someday...

exactly...sometimes things happen so fast you're just reactionary...you dont have time to think of how you can save your wrists..

Smokehaus Of course proper falling is the best tactic to use, but so is trying to not get into a car accident. Wrist guards come into play after you have been unsuccessful trying to fall correctly.

jliu Falling properly is definitely a way to avoid wrist injuries...

however...i find that if im about to take a big spill...panic kicks in and its more reactionary than anything...haha.

Smokehaus Once again, the problem with older style wrist guards is they take the impact of the force and allow it to be concentrated higher on the arm which usually causing your arm to break rather than your wrist.
