"Pro-Designed are the only wrist guards I will wear. Doing a lot of Berts, it still takes a looooong time to wear out Pro-Designed splints on the wrist guard. Other brands, I can go through a splint in two weeks. Plus, occasionally falling onto the…"

"I wear them. I had an old set of leather Rectors I replaced with the pro-designed. I've heard people say they can cause a more serious arm injury by transferring the stress to the arm but I think that's crap. I did try putting mine over…"

"Wrist guards represent no road rash on the palms for me...my recent encounter would have gone much better if I would have had full gear on you can see my pics on my profile...no elbow pads left me realing for days. But as far as wrist guards go I am…"

"I've got a broken wrist right now. Broke it @ the Outlaw skate jam. I let my guard down, took off my wrist guards and went to "warmup" for the hybrid slalom race. I took a hard fall and broke my radius in 3 places @ the…"

"I actually have pretty good short and long term disability plans with work... and the 3 weeks I had off with the broken elbow this summer was 'nice' to use... But if I didn't have the coverage I'd been at work at the desk banging…"

"Pads are not for pussies. Pads are people with jobs! I dunno about you guys, but I cannot afford to miss work because I fell on a skateboard."

"I'm gonna work a whole set of pads into the budget somehow! Plus, even if they didn't prevent another broken arm, at least it'll look like I tried!!!"

"I wear wrist guards and have since I started skating last year after I got tired of the bruises on my palms. I fall a lot and they absorb the impact and help prevent injury. I'm pretty good at falling, and fall from high points in the bowls…"

"Wow... Same guy that told me I'd want some wrist guards when we talked about me getting back into skating at 40+ told me the exact same thing about Pro Designed gear. He lives out near DC in Northern Va., and said he bought Pro-Designed pads…"

Hamm replied to Dan Limbaugh's discussion Wrist Guards...
"I fall. A LOT! My wrist were always sprained, even though I always wear wrist guards. I even break the splints. Triple8, TSG, ProTec, 187, it didn't matter what brand, the splints never lasted more than 2-3 months before I'd fall &…"

"My crash was MINOR in the extreme. Came down a ramp and my 'manual' got out of control. Deboarded to run rather than fall, and couldn't quite sprint it out. Getting old and slow I guess! So down I went, knees to shoulder to chin! and…"
