Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Piece of Technology Dont really care if it takes the Sting away. I bought it to save my son's thumb from being being bruised and bent back when catching kids with heavy sinking action (which is the real reason behind this product.) After suffering several thumb related injuries I invested the $20, watched you tube videos on correct molding techniques, took my time and did it right, and have had ZERO problems since. Gotta buy him a new one now for 2 reasons. 1) I lost his yesterday and 2) he has grown and his thumb was beginning to get chaffed. Best money I have spent on him for catchers gear.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Guard Package Problem I purchased this catcher's guard for my son who is a high school catcher. When we opened the box the seal was already broker on the package so it could not be formed to the thumb. I was very disappointed. I talked to Dick's Sporting Goods and they told me I needed to work directly with EvoShield Customer Service. I have emailed them twice and while their website states they will get back to you within one day it has been over two weeks and no reply. I called them as well and you can only leave a message for them to call you back. Very disappointing how poor the customer service is when they sale a product that had major problems. Be very careful when purchasing this product and do not count on any good customer service support...Not good....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Game Changer I was scared to catch the ball because my thumb would always hurt for the whole entire game.I was looking up solutions to the pain, and I saw this. I would normally catch 15 out of 65 balls at practice with my normal catcher's glove, but when I put this on my performance was 10 times better. Make sure you follow the intructions, and it should be perfect!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too bulky This thumb guard is a little too bulky to fit inside the glove. Also beware that you have only a limited time to form this guard before it becomes too hard to adjust. Don't open the foil package until you have your catcher glove available and can spend 30 minutes or so forming the guard. Once the package is opened, you need to shape it, wrap it and put your hand inside your catcher's glove (which is difficult with the ace-wrap in place). The thumb guard will start hardening and will eventually be like a hardened cast that you will not be able to soften up again. You can one chance to do this right.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really works! My daughter is a first year catcher and was complaining that her thumb hurt. I saw this online and thought we'd give it a try. She loves it and doesn't complain about her thumb anymore. My only caution is that I saw many versions of instructions. We ended up watching a video that was very helpful. Make sure you use instructions that have you wear your glove while it is setting. We didn't have any problems, but I noticed some people had issues forming it when I read the reviews.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thumb proctector I bought this a couple of weeks ago for my kid who is 10 years old. He's the catcher for an older group of baseball players. He would complain of the sting on his thumb when he caught for the older pitchers. It seem like an overnight fix with Evoshields Catcher Thumb Guard. He wears it all the time now with know complaints. Thank you for a great product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Needs better instructions Bought this for my son who had recovered from a broken left thumb thinking it would be helpful. The instructions need to be more specific. If you look up you tube videos it's more helpful especially the part about putting the actual glove on to help with the molding process (I only went off the instructions that were provided) !!! It hardens fairly quick so if you don't do it correctly the first time it's useless. He was not able to use the thumb guard. If you decide to buy this product I recommend watching several you tube videos before you even open the package. Once it's exposed to air it begins to harden.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tough, Rough, and gets the job done. I have battled a sever catcher thumb and torn tendons in my catching hand since 12u while playing 80-90 games a season. Since my dad bought me one for my 13u season I have always had it in my bag. I am a huge fan of this product and would recommend it to anyone that is battling a thumb issue. P.S. Highly recommend wearing your catcher's mitt when molding to your thumb to allow for a better fit!
