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 love these -- it enables me to paddle without gloves (I have small hands) AND it helps keep my hands from sliding out of position on the paddle. This is my third pair (different paddles). The velcro is handy when taking them off to clean or to take on a trip; the velcro is essential on my ergonomic bent shaft paddle.
These grips are great. They make my hands fell better after paddling I think more because of the slightly larger diameter than the padding. So far I have not had any slipping or coming loose. BONUS: The best thing about them, I never thought of before purchasing them, is that for fishing, when I put my paddle in the Lure 11.5's molded paddle keeper, these grips hit the two areas of contact so it reduces noise when parking paddle to cast. Thanks to ACK for good prices, fast shipping and great customer service.
