Been so psyched for winter but it's believed that I have a fracture somewhere along the baby side of my right hand, seeing specialist Monday.

I'm considering investing in a clipper leash for that hand INCASE I'm able to climb on it this season.

Thoughts?

I imagine It will work better on less curved axes but has anyone put a clipper on a nomics or similar?

Regular fractures normally heel in 6-8 weeks.

I don't understand your thinking. Is there a worse prognosis? Are you worried that your grip will be too weak? I always found wrist leashes just led to more pump because it was harder to shake out or switch hands on a grip.

I use them on vipers or rebels. Ergo too curved. Probably would work with a Nomic.
Shouldn't make you more pumped but that is easy to say if you grew up using leashes.

what you said has really helped me. i've not been told how bad it is but i've been really bummed. Can't work, climb, drive and i had been spending half my waking moment dreaming of ice climbing. i should really hold off worry till i seethe specialist, cheers man.

barely used leashes for anything technical but as the fracture relates to my pinky i was thinking pinky rests could be a problem.

cheers pal. i know the older ones can take spinners but i didn't know how well it would work, let alone how much of a fau pas it would be ;)

I'm no expert but would guess your main problem post fracture would be stiffness and weakness, given it's normal to immobilise fractures to allow them to heel.

Took 3-4 months for my last set of smashed toes.
Tendons/ligaments still not 100% 6 months later.
