Curious question. Are you guys gonna make any compression sleeves like some of the other companies are doing? Like Storm and DV8. I think they're still made through High 5 Gear, but they look really cool. Orange and black ones from Motiv would be super sharp.

In case people haven't seen them yet.

I hope they don't.MOTIV needs to stay original,not copy trends.Those things are just like a placebo.You think they are working.They only keep the forearm worm.Which really isn't preventing any injury.

I agree to disagree.

I back you on the "placebo" effect...

However, this is something bowling needs. I can relate to this like I can relate to a race car... the more places to put an advertisement, the better.

Just look at the evolution of the bowling shirt. Up until the mid-2000's, we've been the most boring looking sports collective in the world. Ping Pong players had more "swag" than a Pro Bowler when it came to uniform. Thankful for sublimation & polyester! The times of 100% Cotton are over!

& Motiv wouldn't be copying anybody by getting into compression sleeves. If Motiv is copying, then I guess DV8/Storm/Brunswick were copying the NBA?

I say go for it.

But here's a good bet, let's see who the first company is to release fully sublimated pants?

Brian,I'm all for advertising.I love NASCAR,NHRA,Bass fishing,etc.And I like ads on outfield walls in baseball,unlike others how think it's just big business trying to get their hand in the pie.Adds on outfield walls have been around for over 140 years.

I just am not a fan of more junk on a body,that bowlers don't need.Especially wrist bands/gloves/braces.USBC should do away with these aids just like golf has.

So if MOTIV wants to go down the NBA route,fine.I'm sure people will buy them.

BDC, most of my sentiments towards the sleeves are in line with yours. It's not really about how much practicality they offer, but more the fact that bowlers actually look like an athlete.

I for one hope Motiv makes them. Orange is my favourite colour, so I'd be sure to throw money at them for one.

I have a sleeve that I only use when it is cold outside.

It keeps my forearm warm, and my elbow compressed, for whatever that's worth.

I have just a plain black Nike; my name isn't Belmo, so it didn't make sense to me to get a replica.

And, BTW, the first company that will have dye-sub pants most likely will be High 5.

I started using a compression sleeve on 3/17, I no longer have to use my Tennis Elbow brace. They work pretty well. :)

IMO we are in real trouble if wearing compression sleeves makes us look like an athletes. Wow, if that is all it takes I guess we can all look like one tomorrow. And, not sure what "looking like an athlete" matters if you're not one. Are we athletes just because we bowl or do we bowl because we're athletes?

That's great Messenger! I've heard from quite a few people who have had success with the compression sleeve, especially people with Tennis Elbow or Golfers elbow.

Jerry, I'm not sure I understand. It's a good thing that bowling has taken on a more athletic fashion. Look at golf, it went through the same thing. Do I think these "power sleeves" in particular could be a fad? Very well could be. But to a degree it makes sense. I think looking the part helps create an image. Considering most of us who bowl (I know I do) believe bowling to be a sport, I think it's important to display it as one.

Not only that, I do think there is some merit to power sleeves. I think it's safe to say that a large number of bowling related "injuries" or pain comes from the arm. If you can wear something that can possibly help reduce stress or injury on the arm, why not. Even if it's a placebo affect it can't hurt, right?
