My son is a 6’5 240 lb basketball player prone to ankle injuries. He had been using the ASO braces with plastics stays for about 6 months. Initially I ordered the wrong one without the stays and had no problem returning them and getting a refund. The ASO are pretty good but I wanted him to have even more support. Ron recommended the Zamst Brace and my son loves them. I think he was able to easily adapt to it because he was using the ASO braces first. He just came back from 2 tournaments and not one injury. Thanks Ron for the recommendation and terrific customer service!
