My knees really don't bother me ever (surgeon did a bang up job!) but now that I have the money to travel I have been hucking bigger and bigger. So I figured these might be a wise investment.
I would love to hear some feedback from someone who wears them on their performance.
Connor[/quoteI have a contrary opinion . I blew my knees playing football in highschool 35 years ago. I have had surgery 5 times in my 20's on my left knee. The other one i refused treatment.
I have never worn a brace and have skiied all my life.
Build those knees and don't believe the brace will prevent injury.
You can prevent injury by making those knees stronger than ever before.
When you body is strong your mind will follow.
If you think you need a brace to huck maybe you shouldn't be hucking .
I work out in a gym religously! My legs are rock hard.
I blew my knees out years ago. I have had no problems since the year after my last surgery. I was just inquiring basically because I seen Kent Krietler wears these. They are expensive and seem like they just might prevent further injury; especially on very strong legs allready!
I completely agree with you guys that if you land funny nothing is going to prevent another blowout. Skillz lads skillz
