Complete rupture of A2 pulley 27-May-2011 At 3:02:01 PM chalkischeap
Sorry to hear about the injury Jac.

Most people seem to get over this one without surgery - taping & bumbling for 3 to 5 months. The A2 ring finger pully is a design flaw and a real nuisance. Mine took 5 months to recover. My solution is preventative taping. The gurus say this is nonsense but in my experience:

17 years preventative taping + manic crimping = zero injuries
(sample size =1)

You just have to get the tape tight enough. (i.e. it makes your finger turn purple if you don't start climbing straight away to stretch the tape a little). Its like insurance. Tape up tight and crimp till your eyes pop out.
