Bought the yakgrips for my husband and myself. They definitely help but I find myself constantly messing with them as they move. My husband is looking to put some kind of double sided tape or something to keep them from slipping up and down the shaft of the paddle. Overall, they definitely help.
Better than a plain metal shaft, but they slip on the shaft when wet. Would prefer a thicker rubberized grip to these - like original equipment ones.
The yak grips help alot with hand fatigue and any sort of hand discomfort you may have when paddling. On some paddles they move on the shaft a bit even after you get them in place but that is the only negative thing about them. I have a pair I have been using for years and I suffer with carpel tunnel syndrome - the grips help alot. I would recommend them.
Prevented my hands from blistering which was previously happening near my thumbs. They slide a bit when wet but wasn't something that bothered me.
