Mongoose Products does make one of the best wrist supports for bowlers IMHO. Mr. Adams has three models to choose from:
1) Equalizer, 2) Lifter and 3) Optimum. The Equalizer and Optimum have two straps that secure the support to your forearm, there is one that wraps around the middle and ring fingers at the end and there is a fourth strap between the finger and forearm straps that wraps around the hand across the palm; however, there is no palm pad. The support for the wrist bending back is excellent.
I have the Optimum support and it helped me to learn to use my fingers to obtain rotation on the ball properly. I don't often use it any more.
What's the need for a palm pad?

a palm pad? Check a Robbie's. It has an aluminum piece (that you can bend to individualize to you) that crosses your palm and goes down your wrist a bit. My wife, F-in-law, and M-in-law use them.

I think you're talking about the Cool Max. It does have an aluminum piece that is inside the glove device and it can be removed. As far as I'm concerned it doesn't support the wrist much at all as I had one of those, too. I think I gave it away. The Mongoose supports are so much better for those with an old injury to their wrist or just tend to break their wrists back on each shot.

I know - I started with a Mongoose and am using a Gadget.

W9 said "palm pad" and the Robbie's (multiple models) has that.

A lot of people swear by them - I don't like them, personally, but that's just me. Everyone's hand/wrist is different.
