I got this last week, and it has worked wonders! I recently got what is called "gamekeepers thumb." I got it when I caught a 82MPH fastball right off my thumb. It has to be the most pain I've ever been in, so I had to find something to wear that would protect me when I'm behind the plate. That's when I came across the EvoShield Hour Glass thumb guard.

Make sure that when you mold it to your thumb, that you have it wrapped very tight to get it perfectly molded. And let me tell you, when this thing is done molding, it feels like a brick! Great protection!

        Comments about EvoShield Adult Baseball Catcher's Thumb Protector:

        After several thumb jams from catching, the Evo Shield Hour Glass Thumb Guard was the best protection for my soar left thumb. From practice to bullpen sessions to game day, this product gave me the extra protection I needed to comfortably receive 80-90 MPH Fastballs without any pain. Easy to custom form, easy to insert in my glove and complete comfort.

        This product saved my son alot of misery and kept him in the game.At a baseball tournament he was pulled as catcher after a game and a half for a thumb injury.We purchased the Evo Shield and formed it before the next weekends tournament. He caught all five games that weekend (not recommended) without further injury. I would recommend this item for anyone with thumb issues. It saved my sons ability to play.

          This offers very good protection, but doesnt fit into a glove very well. It is also more difficult to mold than other EvoShield products.

            Make sure you understand directions completely before you open package. We even watched a few videos found on the computer before we opened. All in all not hard to form. My son does a lot of catching and since we purchased this he does not complain of his thumb hurting. He wears this with his Palmgard protective glove. Very happy with this product. Even thinking of getting the shin guard from evo-shield

                  Son plays for his 8th grade middle school team as well as travel ball. He was starting to develop a sore thumb joint due to the increase in pitcher velocity. This has helped tremendously!
