Good, but quality of manufacture has slipped

June, 2017 UPDATE. I ordered another set of these today and added three photos below to illustrate a point I’m trying to make with this update. The point is that these are very good for what they’re designed to do, but they should be considered “expendable,” not a life of the paddle purchase if you regularly paddle difficult waters where your grip on the paddle is very tight. The wear shown in my photos is what you’d expect after two full seasons of ocean and river paddling. One photo shows not only the typical wear on the nylon covering, but also typical deterioration of the neoprene rubber beneath it, the result of countless compressions and expansions within a very limited area. The paddle shaft is visible through one of the holes. Shoes wear out after heavy use, and so it is with these. I don’t fault that. Think of the damage to my thumb and fingers if the grips were NOT there. I bought another set because, after reviewing all the alternatives, these are the best on the market. The wear is identical whether the grip is black or some other color.

This is my second pair

The first pair lasted for just about a 1000 miles of paddling and really helped with blisters. Plus I have Rheumatoid Arthritis, so they made gripping the paddle much easier. As they wear out they do have a tendency to slip a little on the paddle, but that’s when you know it’s about time to get another pair.

Great grips !

These are really nice, the only reason i give it 4 stars is because they are a little to thick for me and make the paddle feel a little weird to hold but i am sure i will get used to it. They are nice and soft, give a good grip, and seem to be well made, i included a couple photos of the stitching so you can see it. I have a 2 piece solo canoe paddle so i ordered the proper set, they can be pretty tough to get on, i almost wish i would of got the set for a 1 piece paddle because they use Velcro, the instructions say to wet the inside, well i soaked the whole thing in water and it went on a little easier. I would almost suggest applying a small drop of dish soap to the paddle shaft to make them slide a little easier.

My wife’s hands are now more comfortable!!

I bought these for my wife who was complaining about sore hands after kayaking. The grips are easy to install by slipping over the ends of the paddle after disconnecting the paddle in its middle. It did help to wet the grip to slide it over the paddle shaft. My wife’s paddle is a little thinner than the “standard” paddle and the Yakgrip is kind of loose and tends to slip out of position with longer term paddling but my wife still likes it and it definitely has added comfort to her paddling. It would be nice if these were to come in a couple different sizes so they would fit the thinner paddle shaft a little better but I guess the price might be higher for a more custom fit. Would buy again.

These are awesome, I have had issues with blisters forming in the valley of my thumb and this helped immensely! I have large hands and I feel like it gives me a better grip. It might be a bit too large for someone with below average hand size, but that also depends on the size of your paddle shaft. I was nervous about them possible slipping but I have had no issues. I would recommend spending the $12 if you do paddling for any decent amount of time or have had any blistering issues. They also feel very durable, so I expect them to last for a long time.

Comfortable Grip but does slide a little

These grips performed well in terms of reducing blisters on my hands. I went out one day with just one pad to see if there was a difference and there definitely was. Made for much more comfortable grips. I have a Caviness CavPro KPC which it fit nicely on. Even with my ergonomic grips, these made the paddle more comfortable. You WILL need to have a 2-piece paddle (comes apart in the middle) to install this variant. Although they sell the one with Velcro that comes apart in the middle (which I actually ordered but received this) that may work, you can’t be sure that they will send that one unfortunately (maybe discontinued?).

No more blisters!

These grips make kayaking so much more enjoyable! They were incredibly difficult to get on my paddle, so my husband did it for me. I’m sure that’s a good thing that they were difficult to get on, because they haven’t really moved at all. It would be annoying if they were slipsliding around and constantly need adjusting. They stay in place for the most part and my hands no longer get blisters. I will not paddle again without having these!
