Rated 5 out of 5 by Thumb Saver Great product,this product saves catchers thumbs!!!!! May 29, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Bought it for my daughter My daughter had picked up a severe bruise on her thumb during a tournament. Bought the guard on friday night and she played the rest of the weekend with little to no discomfort. She says she will use it all of the time now. Loves it. May 29, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Hard to catch with. I guess it did it's job, no more pain from a fast pitched ball, however it made it very difficult to squeeze the glove resulting in many dropped balls. May 20, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works great for my 11yr old son My son started catching last year and was injuring his thumb. When a father from his team told me about this product. My son loves it!! No more sore injured thumb and it fits just fine inside his catching glove! As long as my son continues catching out on the field I will always make sure he has one of these! May 20, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Dont waste your money... This doesn't work for "kid" catchers... we used 2 and couldn't get either tight enough to stay on his hand in his mitt! May 14, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by save your money Im a catcher and needed something for my thumb that would help it but I bought this and molded it and it wouldn't fit in my glove! eventually i got it adjusted but then i couldn't even feel the ball! really wanted it to work but it didnt. save your money and buy something worth the $20 May 12, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Waste of money! I am generally a huge fan if Evoshield products, but save your $20. The thumb guard provided no protection for my son and would not fit in his catchers mitt. May 7, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works Fabulously I have injured my thumb on multiple occasions. I tried generic thumb braces but they were bulky, uncomfortable, and restricted movement. This is the total opposite it is as comfortable as possible due to it's custom molding design. its size is small enough to fit inside your mitt, and allows for full mobility. You sometimes forget its even there. It's actually stronger than the brace i used before too. It has given me back the confidence to catch my friend when he is throwing his hardest (high 80's - low 90's) with out the fear of getting hurt again. The only problem I was wrapping the gauze around it to hold it in place myself. With a little help it's fast easy and is ready in about 30 minutes. You just have remember to fit it as if you gong to wear it while playing (i.e. over your batting glove). It also helped me to watch the fitting video they had on their website before i tried to fit it myself. May 5, 2014
