keeps your hands warm and blister free
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.
Be careful putting these onto your paddles if you have a threaded connection between the left and right sides. The threads will shred the inner padding if you don't carefully get the pads past that point before sliding them more forcefully into position.
These grips are great! Just follow the directions and wet them in order to easily slide them on and you're all set. Without these I would quickly get blisters on my hands from holding the paddle while kayaking, but now my hands are blister-free and never sore. Makes kayaking much more enjoyable without having to buy an expensive paddle!
