The J-Glove 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 of the 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. All this, without any additional pad/foam as with other rival training aids.
By utilizing the J-Glove you will:
Prevent finger flexion at the base of your fingers ensuring an open-hand follow through with every repetition
Eliminate side to side improper wrist mechanics
Ensure maximum extension at the wrist joint during shot set up, resulting in keeping the ball off the mid palm of the hand, and creating more power/range on your shot
Develop proper finger separation in order to control the basketball
Re-construct your shooting mechanics of the follow through in a short period of time, while providing you with success and confidence to be a long-term successful shooter
While there are different shooting aids available, many are limited to one area - handling a basketball during shot set up. However, there is not a single shooting aid on the market that focuses on the most important aspect of consistent shooters......open-hand, square follow through!
For most amateur shooters, the main reason for inconsistent shooting is improper side-to-side wrist flexion during follow through. If a right-hand player prematurely flexes his/her index finger during follow through (most common), then his/her wrist will finish toward the outside, resulting in biomechanical errors on their shot. If they prematuraly flex their ring finger, their wrist will finish towards the inside. Where does your wrist finish?
Because of it's unique finger splint design, the J-Glove prevents finger flexion at the base of the finger joints (MCP Joint), while allowing complete freedom at the DIP joint in allowing a player to grip and feel the basketball. Ultimately, this innovative design enables perfect forward hinging motion at the wrist joint, resulting in improved master of your shooting mechanics in a matter of weeks.
In addition, the glove design develops proper finger separation within your "finger fork", and ensures maximum extension at the wrist joint to create a proper "trigger position" before the shot release. Because of the finger splint design, if the ball is resting on a player's palm, the player's fingers will not be in contact with the ball, thus reinforcing proper shot set up with every repetition. There is not another shooting aid on the market that can promote these same benefits.
The J-Glove is all about constructing or re-constructing perfect biomechanical shooting mechanics during your shot release and follow through. In most cases, this will involve one of the more difficult training tasks known to humans....breaking old habits. Lessons at camps, and clinics often leave players confused and discouraged, resulting in old shooting habits quickly reverting back. Re-training the brain to discontinue the use of old muscle-memory circuits and to create new muscle-memory circuits is a very time-consuming and repetitive process.
Refer to the sizes below, however, exceptions will occur depending on hand and finger
variations of player's body types for their age group. Also, because of anatomical gender differences, we strongly recommend females ordering size small or medium only.
Size Small: Grade school - Jr. High, ages 8-11.
Size Medium: Jr. High- High School (9th Grade), ages 12-15.
Size Large: High School (10th Grade) - College/Pro, ages 16 - up.
Size XL: Designed for players with XL hands and wide fingers.
*Please note that sizes small and medium are made from the same glove size template, however, differ only in finger elastic width. This is also true with sizes large and XL being made from the same glove size template, and differ only in finger size width.
"The J-Glove is a revolutionary product that increases muscle memory and sensory perception for players at all levels. It is simple to use and through virtual reality, can teach the proper shooting release without a coach being on the floor. With continual repetition, the J-Glove will assist your players in becoming consistent shooters and game changers! The J Glove works for the National Runner-Up Cardinals, it will work for you too!" - Jeff Walz (Head Coach University of Louisville - 2009 Runner-Up National Champions)
"Jeremy Russotti [J-Glove Inventor] has been training me since I was 13 years of age. I went from a player that first picked up a ball in high school to an NCAA All-American (honorable mention) by the time I left college. His teaching principles and the J-Glove are no doubt some of the main reasons why I was able to continue to play basketball at the professional level." - Josh Akognon 2009 NCAA Leader 3-Pointers Made - (138), Current Professional B-Ball Player
"The J-Glove in my humble opinion is the Best Basketball Shooting Training Aid of the New Millennium. The J-Glove sells itself and Jeremy is a tremendous young teacher and coach of the game, evidence by his unique yet effective view on shooting in his shooting DVD." - Herb Welling (excerpt from his respected b-ball blog)
"I recently came across a program that has simply revolutionized my thought process on the proper way to shoot the basketball. The J-Glove is flat out the best shooting tool I've ever seen. I've been working out one of our players almost every day this spring as he tries to make the transition from a post player to playing on the perimeter. This player has worked his tail off shooting thousands and thousands of shots this spring, but progress and improvement has been relatively slow. After 20 minutes using the J-Glove my player was making over 60% of his shots from all over the floor with range out to 25 feet - a far higher percentage than he had ever shot in previous practice sessions. The rapid shooting gains this player made after just a week of using the J-Glove has made me a strong believer in a number of Coach Russotti's ideas, in particular his concept of "premature finger flexion. - Geoff Reed: Attack Basketball Blog
"That J-Glove is unbelievable! I was skeptical at first but that little glove really fixes problems with player's follow through instantly. Our guys have really gravitated toward it and asking to use it daily. I wish they had this out when I was in my playing years. The shooting DVD has principles that I have never seen before but make absolute perfect sense." - Kevin Mouton: Rice University Men's Basketball Assistant Coach
"As an engineer and basketball skill trainer, I have an active and well-developed BS-detector which I constantly rely on to filter through all the gimmicks and hype associated with many of the basketball training products on the market these days. I'm very particular about the training equipment that I purchase and need to feel confident that its use will be effective. I can honestly say that the J-Glove provided the physical aid needed by certain clients to correct specific flaws in their release mechanics which they were not otherwise able to correct. I have found that some athletes can change the necessary neural circuit firings without the need of an aid, while others have a harder time changing these habitual movements. It's nice to have a device that can provide aid to those that need it. The J-Glove provides the needed constraints that I have been looking for to help reinforce proper shot release mechanics." - Rick Allison, Owner, Founder and Lead Trainer of LoneStar Basketball Academy
"I got the ball handling video today and in my opinion it is better than any tapes I have seen in regard to individual skill development, and I have them all: Josh Akognon is a freak with his ball quickness, and is really fun to watch. Unlike so many other tapes, you slowed the stuff down, and then explained what to do, which truthfully is missing in a way too many of today's "instructional videos". I can't wait to watch the J-Glove Shooting DVD." - John Jordan: 21 years Varsity Boys Coach St. Francis HS (Los Angeles, CA)
"My son just got the J-Glove and I just can't tell you how much he loves it! You should see him shoot with it! I always thought he was a pretty good shooter before he got the glove, he is so much more accurate since getting it. Unbelievable how quickly it has shown improvement." - Email form Marty Woodard (Ohio)
I absolutely love how you guys really ship product out faster than any company I've ever experienced in my life. Better than any other... period. I'll continue purchasing from you guys because of your superior customer service. Thanks. Rey V.
