Title: Snake shot wrist protection
Post by: phermes1 on February 01, 2020, 08:18:03 PM
Hey all,

Iíve been working on my snake shot - I can hit it with a lot of power, but not with as much lateral movement with consistency as Iíd like, so Iím working on that part.
Anyway, Iím having issues with a sore on the lower half of my wrist that the bar contacts during the shot. I need to leave it alone until it gets better, but is there anything anyone uses to help prevent such sores?

You have wraps on the handles? Possibly a thicker wrap would help. Ive seen other players use a compression fit wrist sleeve but I have not used one myself so I cannot speak on its ability to prevent this type of injury.

Thanks. Yes, I have a wrap on my table at home - at work, no. The wrap does definitely help, I was just wondering if there was anything else that people did that might help some.

I wear a very thin wrist strap w/ a piece of rubber material sewn into it. It works great. Different that this but same idea: https://shop.foosball.com/ro.html
