This is my favorite paddling accessory. I don't like to wear gloves in the Summer, so I use these super cushy grips to prevent blisters. The neoprene grips also relieves stress and fatigue on longer trips. They can be used on most 2 piece paddles (there are also Yak grips that open all the way for 1 piece paddles). Good gift for paddlers.

These are great - no need to wear gloves in warm weather - the grips provide cushioning and prevent blisters. I'm giving them as Christmas gifts this year. One request, please make them in Lime Green!
