Product Description and Specs

The Yakgrips - Kayak Paddle Grips have the cushiest feel and follow the actual curve of your hands to reduce fatigue, prevent blisters and calluses. Yakgrips - Kayak Paddle Grips ease the pressure on your palms and tendons of your hands so you can get a good grip on your paddle for more efficient paddling. You'll appreciate them even more for those aggressive bouts of paddling. Yakgrips are also very easy to install. For 2-piece paddles just wet the inside of the Yakgrips - Kayak Paddle Grips and slide on. The inner gripping design will keep them where you put them. If you want to remove them put some water under them and on the paddle shaft and pull them off. For one-piece paddles a Velcro version is available. Yakgrips - Kayak Paddle Grips can be left on so that they are ready for your next journey.

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.

I spend many hours per day, paddling my kayak, for my job. I need to put my hands in the water a lot, so prefer not to wear wet gloves that much. I got these, and I love them. No blisters, and the paddle is more comfortable. The paddle I use these on is fairly narrow, so they do move slightly, but not much. They are a bit too much volume to be comfortable gripping for a long time, when I use them on my slightly thicker paddle.

Bought these so I can go paddle glove free at times. I like them and for the price they are definitely worth having for the option. However, my gloves are definitely more comfortable and produce less rubbing against my skin. Also, these grips are a touch thick. I notice more hand fatigue when using the grips, or especially (and unnecessarily) if I'm using the grips and gloves. When I shift back to just my gloves from the grips my paddle feels like a chopstick in my hands due to how much thicker the grips make the paddle. Bottom line, worth the price to have the convenience of going glove free (and minimize glove tan lines) and they provide the option of better paddle comfort for someone using our backup 'yak while visiting who does not have gloves.

Q: which is best and will prevent slipping as some have stated - the velcro or non velcro? Thanks so much.
My paddles come apart, so I bought the slip-on grips. I think the slipping depends on paddle circumference. Slipping is very minimal on my narrower paddle, nonexistent on my wider one. I don't know if the velcro ones are better for adjusting tightness. Velcro might make them too thick to hold comfortably.
