Product Review - The Stickler
We all have divers who just can't keep their ankles together,
and here's a
product that really helps. This Stickler was developed by
cousins and it consists of two padded foam blocks with a velcro
strip which is attached to each ankle by an adjustable strap.
I tried this
product with my own divers and the results were immediate.
divers who had trouble keeping his ankles and legs together
used the Stickler several times and instantly understood what
it felt like
to keep them together. The result was an almost instant improvement
The Stickler can also be used for other divers, and is great
learning twisters. The diver can either do a back take-off
or walk down
the board. When they leave the board and their legs come together;
feet will be held together by the padded Velcro ankle wraps.
diver's feet come apart, the sound of the Velcro pulling apart
enough to be heard by the diver so they know when and where
in the twist
they "lost their feet"!
Stickler is available at Springboards
and More or your local gymnastics
distributor. Although I thought they were a bit pricey ($18.50
they worked much better than and were much more convenient
tried before (Sammy tied around the ankle; duck tape!). The
seemed to hold up well, even when wet. My conclusion is that
is well worth the money. Over
