J-GLOVE PRODUCT REVIEW
The J-Glove review is a look at one of the most popular basketball shooting training aids on the market today.
The product description for the J-Glove claims it is the only shooting aid on the market designed to teach a user how to correctly grip, set up, and release a basketball. By promoting proper biomechanics of shooting, the J-Glove uses finger splint design technology in preventing premature finger flexion at the base and middle finger joints - which is the #1 reason for improper side to side wrist mechanics during follow through. Additionally, the finger splint design creates absolute perfect shot set up, never allowing the ball to rest on your palm.
So how does the J-Glove stack up? There are literally hundreds of so-called miracle cures for the ailing jump-shot available on the market. The fact is, only a disciplined commitment of time, concentration, and mechanically sound training will yield an improvement; quite simply, there are no quick fixes. It's commonly known that you’ll find that the best shooters are the ones who get to the gym earliest and stay the latest. Muscle memory and delicate refinement are critical in building a great shooting stroke.
In the opinion of the SPS team, the J-Glove is one of the products that can help you in your shooting workouts. It does a credible job of physically reinforcing the proper shooting technique, forcing the practitioner to keep the ball off the palm and in the shooting pad, spreading the fingers out, and keeping the wrist and follow-through square and true. Shooting with one’s fingers spread wide is frequently neglected in shot analysis but is a crucial part of a consistent jump-shot. After using the J-Glove for several sessions, I felt a palpable difference in the restriction of my wrist’s movements so that it finished straight and towards the bucket.
There are no overnight solutions to better one’s shooting. Constant repetition, adjustment, and hours of gym time is the only path. The J-Glove aids you in this process as it keeps your mechanics focused during those long shooting sessions, forcibly re-training one’s muscle memory until it becomes second nature. It’s as important to train smart as it is to train hard, and the J-Glove is a valuable asset in that regard.
