Closed grip handles

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Why did they stop making the closed grip handles? Or did they? Anyone know of a company that still makes them? I can only find them at thrift stores, but I love em.

They were said to be a hazard. Some folks were breaking thumbs. Our rental shop still has a few of them so go figure? :

They destroyed many thumbs, some breaks and lots of torn ligaments. Came to be known as skier's thumb and is very similar to what was known as gameskeeper's thumb.

Try Scott. My local shop carries some of the closed grippers and they're made by Scott.
