'Tubigrips' or tubular grips, I presume, are the tubular grip bandages that you can buy from pharmacies. I've had a look in Boots, and at prices of Â£20 - 30 they look at bit pricey!! From what I know, there are a few pros (ie national league) keepers in the UK and elsewhere who use them to cover their elbow to prevent burns when sliding and diving around with bare arms. I gather you tape around the elbow/arm to cover the area of skin and the glue substance on them will tie them to you - I've had to wear those fabric plaster wraps over muscles before after getting a few contusions! I know this type of wrapping allows you to hold basic plastic elbow pads around the arm, like I've seen Chris Bristow (Havant) do. This is visual evidence of the technique - photos courtesy of John O'Brian from First Focus Photography, UK Old Loughts keeper indoor league http://firstfocusphoto.com/index.php?cat=events&page=photo&photoid=ruqj00akzc&pg=4& Bristow in action for Havant http://firstfocusphoto.com/index.php?cat=events&page=photo&photoid=odbch44j61&pg=2& I think they also come in the pull-on tube variety (could be wrong about both!! lol) like those knee joint things to help if you've got dodgy muscles. This is EG [East Grinstead] young reserve keeper wearing them: http://firstfocusphoto.com/index.php?cat=events&page=photo&photoid=2dijan&pg=1& Anybody use them yourself? Could you give any tips or advice?
