I was using An At3 whan I got hurt. I think a straight shaft is easier on me as well. But... every one has a personal prefferance. Most will say bent is better.

make sure you knock on wood...

Not 2 weeks after writing to about how stout my shoulder is after surgery I suffered a nasty dislocation in Tunnel. It took 10-15 minutes to set it which was the longest its ever been out. Haven't been to the doc yet to see how bad it is. I bumming. I'm just glad it was Tunnel and not Gore, would have been a nasty swim with one arm.

Wow, both shoulders dislocated in one crash?? Sorry, but that is amazing and very painful at the same time. I've dislocated over 30 times, had 5 surgeries and now have some cadaver(sp?) bone too. My recommendation... learn to peddle a bike. Even after surgery to repair everything, chances of a dislocation are still pretty good. While, I am not yet a doctor I plan to be soon! It's something that I would like to add to my activities accomplishments... Check it out at

sorry to be thread-jackin, but...


Did you have that shoulder work done out this way? If so, got any tips as to who I might want to hit up for similar stuff? I'm looking to have a recently destroyed rotator cuff (compliments of an '07 grand finale beat down last week) put back together. Bout to follow up with two different docs, post mri but I'd be all about talking to others if there were to come recommended from experience.
