Gloves for Arthritis

  •  

    Has there been any new glove by FJ that is on the market yet for those with the Big A??

    One of the guys I golf with is having some trouble with the onset of this problem in his hands and asked me about FJ having something that would help. I told him I was unaware of anything at present, but would see if staff had anything in the works. I told him he might like to try the new Spider2 to help with his grip on the club, but that was as far as I would go with advice.

    Eagle...

    The guy I played with on Thursday used 2 gloves when he used his driver, so he could grip the club less. And he used those gloves with the magnets in them. I know it's not a FJ product, but Lou swore these gloves worked well for him.

    FJ gloves are still the best thing going!

    I recall an old post about an FJ glove that's no longer made but can sometimes be found on eBay -- had extra padding or something?? Anyone else remember what it was called?

    It is called the ShockStopper. There are still some available on different sites, but they are limited in size.

    I think Phil needs an arthritis glove if there ever is one... poor guy.

    +1 ON THE SPIDR2 eagle.

    Eagle, has your friend tried using larger grips? Like the Jumbomax or Golf Pride Jumbo Tour Wrap? i have friends that have achieved very good results using those products.

    As of this day all 3 friends have gone to a slightly larger grip and 2 have begun using the Spidr2 glove and just love it. The othe person has switched to a competitors glove that is exclusively made for those with the big A. But, thanks for the info.

    My pleasure - I'll mention the Spidr2 to my friends up here.

    SPIDR2 is a great glove choice. I'm not sure how it relates to athritis, but I can say that I really love the glove myself for my own game.

    Did you mean SPIDR2? I don't think there is a SPIDR3, yet at least.

    Or is there?!?!?!?! Kidding. SPIDR2 would be FJ's best bet currently in my opinion.
