A number of people have purchased the Flexmeter wrist guards by Demon recently and I wanted to ask about how they fit your wrist/hand. I'm a tall skinny person making finding anything that fits a real PITA. I used the size guide on the Demon website and guess what, I'm 19cm, which put me on the border of medium and large. I ordered the mediums as I have very thin wrists and medium is suggested by Demon for teens and adults with thinner wrists. They arrived yesterday and the fit feels OK but according the this retailer website proper fit is determined by the "flex zone" being over the wrist pivot (makes sense) and the guard not extending further than the knuckles. "Check the Fit When you receive your Flexmeter Wrist Guards, put them on and tighten the straps, then check to see that the “Flex Zone” of the wrist guard lines up with the part of your wrist that bends upward. And check that the top of the wrist guard near your knuckles does not extend past your knuckles, or it will be uncomfortable when you fall." When I tried the medium size on I felt that the "flex zone" was actually ahead of my wrist pivot (closer to my fingers) but the guard probably shouldn't be longer as it would extend beyond the knuckle. The "flex zone" still moves when I pull my wrist back but maybe not as well as it should. These are expensive guards so I want to get the best protection from them I can. I've now ordered some a set of large to try (arrives Friday) but I wanted to ask existing owners where the "flex zone" sat in relation to their wrist pivot. Same for extension over the knuckles. Trying these on is hard as the damn things are plastic tied to the cardboard packaging. I'll post pictures Friday evening when I have both sizes available.
