|Does SureWrist work with all the golf gloves?
|It works with
99% of them. Out of all the gloves we've seen, there is only one
winter glove that wouldn't work with SureWrist because the hook
and loop Velcro strips on that glove were reversed.
Are there ways to make
SureWrist stiffer to provide more feedback?
you absolutely can’t feel anything, you can temporarily increase the
feedback by wearing SureWrist between the glove and your hand or by wrapping a
rubber band on top of it as shown in the pictures on the right.|
will be much harder to bend over. And if you do cup your wrist,
it will dig into your hand much more. We only recommend using
SureWrist this way when you know for sure you can control your wrist
action to avoid any injury. E.g. Don’t wear it this way when
practicing full swing since the momentum of the swing will make you cup
your wrist at the finish. Please check your hand after each
SureWrist is designed to function like an
electric dog collar instead of a straitjacket. The pressure it
generates should be enough to give you feedback but is not intended to
prevent you from assuming the wrong position.
Can I use SureWrist without a glove?
you can. We understand people may prefer practicing putting and
chipping without a glove. SureWrist can be worn below a suitable
wrist band (like a wrist watch as shown in the picture on the
Please note that SureWrist becomes very rigid
when you wear it this way. Not only it will be much less likely
to give when pushed, its leading edge will also dig into the back of
your hand hard even if you only cup your wrist slightly. Since
there is no glove between SureWrist and your skin to provide
cushioning, you should only use SureWrist this way when you know
you can control your wrist action to avoid any injury.
are also researching a version of SureWrist with an integrated wrist
band for people who don’t like gloves. If you think it’s a good
idea, please click here to let us know. The more votes we receive, the more likely we will bring it to the market.
Can I reposition the Velcro strips on SureWrist?
|No. The Velcro strips are
bonded to SureWrist with extremely
strong industrial glue. Attempting to remove them will likely

How did SureWrist come about?
idea of SureWrist was born out of a conversation between Shan and Jim
Rue concerning a method for reminding a student of key teaching points
while he or she is playing or practicing. Shan followed up with
the idea of a device attached to the golf glove that not only can hold
the teaching points in note form, but can also help the golfer in
maintaining a flat wrist. The wrist assistance became the main
focus of the project.
prototypes were made out of special
materials and common
household items. A couple of months later, one particular
prototype made from a shampoo bottle was tested and got very good
reviews. A provisional patent was filed and the engineering
to make it a product ensued. Over the following year, significant funding and effort were expended in trying out different
injection molds (we tried 3 different geometries) and a wide variety of

product outcome, adding to the complexity of research and development. The picture above shows a small sample of

though the manufacturing cost is 4-5 times higher than in Asia, we decided
to do everything in the USA for quality and speed to market.
