Rated 5 out of 5 by works great It works great at keeping my son's thumb from hurting. Did exactly what it said it was going to do. April 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product! Bought this for my 9 year old and it has worked great for him. He complained after every practice that his thumb hurt. It no longer hurts since he started using this thumb protector. April 16, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by pass on it Did not fit well in my 11yr old sons glove. Returned it March 18, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Not impressed It did not mold right. Does not fit properly. I cannot use it. I would return it but the drive is too far, therefore not worth returning. February 18, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Does not stay on Got this for my 12yr old catcher. It did not stay on her thumb inside the mitt. Waste of money. Wrapped a Velcro thumb support instead which is perfect. February 12, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Injury Preventer This product is great and this is coming from a varsity catcher, just make sure when you buy it that, you go on youtube and follow their video on how to apply it and follow their steps for a sure fit. Love mine January 13, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product i wish this was around when I was catching. My son hyperextended his thumb so I bought one for him. It's a little big for his thumb but the product itself is great. October 2, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Thumb Guard It would be better if it would stay on. This is a great item for catchers if you can get it to work. September 23, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Incredible product My son is a catcher on our traveling baseball team and in August suffered a typical thumb injury most catchers get at some point in there career. We bought the Evo Shield thumb guard. He has been catching again and not complaining of any pain. It also doesn't seem to affect his catching. It was also very easy to form to his hand. Great protection and great product. September 10, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Big help My son's thumb was getting banged up a little by our hard throwers. Evo Shield definitely helped by stabilizing and protecting his thumb. So thumbs up (pun intended) from us! August 22, 2013
