A little help for your shield thumb

A little help for your shield thumb

I love a new product launch day! I'm please to announce the release of my newest product, the centre grip thumb guard. I came up with the idea for a way to protect your shield thumb when watching a fight where one of the combatants was particularly enthusiastic about hooking with his round shield, and the other poor fellow had a much narrower square shield. Needless to say, square shield guy's thumb was the loser that day.

I got to thinking that there's been other times where I've seen how a thumb guard could help. I know of at least one instance where a fighter took a nasty thumb shot during Crown. While it didn't end his day, his shield work was affected for the rest of the tournament.

I can't say that I've ever experienced a crushed thumb during the occasional times I've used a centre grip shield, but I've had a smashed finger tip, and that was quite enough for me. So here we are. I'll never build another centre grip shield without a thumb guard. And hopefully you won't either.

One thing to note is that this is an unusual item in that it's discounted by half when combined with any other item. So if it's $10 on its own, it's only $5 if you buy anything else on my site. Discounts are automatically applied to your cart. Add yours here.
