I always thought these were a joke as the only people who wore them were beginners. But this winter I saw a crackmaster wearing them in Joshua Tree and he gave them a stellar review. I bought a pair and I've been very surprised at how well they work. If you are a dedicated taper, these will save you time and money. They go on faster than tape, work almost as well as tape, and probably grab the rock better, being rubber. A good new pair of tape gloves will be thinner and tighter, especially around the wrists. But if you are just cruising up some fun hand or fist cracks, and want to prevent road burns and abrasions, these things are better than you think. Give them a try!
