Shooter's Shock Absorber™
A Shock Buffer for your Wrist!
The Shooter's Shock Absorber™ absorbs recoil energy at the wrist, before it travels to the sensitive tendons of the elbow and carpal area. It utilizes a proprietary, high-density liquid metal, encapsulated in a spherical housing, that acts as a powerful shock buffer ... thus preventing shooter's elbow and wrist conditions.
When subjected to the recoil from a firearm, a counter wave is produced within the capsule, neutralizing some of the recoil energy.
• Reduces Recoil Stress on Wrist and Elbow
• Reduces Recovery Time Between Shots (Split Times)
• Reduces Muscle Fatigue
• Reduced Perceived Recoil
Engineering studies conducted at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and at HAKO Research Laboratories, concluded that the Shooter's Shock Absorber reduces vibration amplitude by 70% and vibration time by 50%.*
*Data collected using oscilloscope connected to a piezoelectric sensor and to a computer to average data.
The Shooter’s Shock Absorber™ was tested by Daniel R. Furbee (I.C.O.R.E. and U.S.P.S.A. Master Class revolver shooter and International Revolver Championship, 2002 World Champion (stock division). Here is what he had to say;
"In 2004, I started using the UniqueTek Shooter's Shock Absorber. Within a few weeks I noticed a definite difference. Less fatigue during extended practice sessions and I definitely thought my splits were faster on rapid-fire stages. After a little testing I discovered that my rapid fire, single target splits had decreased by .02 seconds per target and I was maintaining my usual accuracy while using major loads in my S&W 625 .45 revolver. Less fatique, faster shooting and good accuracy, that’s a winning combination. Thanks UniqueTek." — Dan Furbee - Mesa, AZ
"The Shooter's Shock Absorber is worth every penny! When I first saw the product I was skeptical as to how affective it could be. I thought how could a silly little ball on my wrist help with my aching elbow? Well I was convinced into trying the product and WOW it works! Every competitor gets tired and sore toward the end of a match, some more than others. I found when I used the Shooter's Shock Absorber, fatigue was less, I felt less pain in my elbow, and recoil control shot to shot is better allowing for faster splits. I find myself quite upset these days when I forget to bring my shock absorber to a match! I have shown myself through trial and error that they work very well!"
"April 2012, I won Master limited at the South West Regional Revolver match in Morro Bay, CA using the Shock Absorber." — Tom Hubbard - ICORE, Master Limited
"Shooter's Shock Absorbers are outstanding!. Use them on both wrists with alloy revolvers for I.C.O.R.E., USPSA and Man-on-Man. Can shoot all day with no hand or arm fatigue. Won't shoot without them on." — Phil S. - Lovelock, NV
"I wore it for the first time this past weekend at our weekly club match. For the first time in a long time, I have had no elbow pain in the following week. I really believe that your product has a lot to do with the lack of discomfort in my elbow. Now I haven't seen my splits go down to .10 secs, but I am working on that :) :) Seriously, thanks for a great product." — Deron W. - Frisco, TX
"I shoot a 38/357 and my husband ordered your wrist strap [Shooter's Shock Absorber] for me. I have a weak thumb joint and this strap makes a noticeable difference in the "kick" I receive. Thanks for a good aid." — Sue Ellen H. - Lubbock, TX
