    Nope. What is the reason you're looking to try these? What part of your hands are hurting?

      No, never tried them.

      I'd rather have my callouses, to be honest.

          well, they are listed as "Allowed Equipment" for the NAS National Show in Vegas. Just wondering if anyone has had luck with them...

            What event would they be wanted for?? I can't see anything being better than the skin on your hands.

                LOL, hmmmmmmmmmmmmm................

                They were listed for the Tire Flip, Darryl tried and couldn't find a grip that worked well with them. All he had left were his fingertips. Can't flip a tire with your fingertips??? Or maybe that should be a new event!

                Oh well.

                  Thought I might chime in. If they allow it you should do it or try it. Couple lessons learned along the way have shown me this. So I bought some gorilla grips. And I'm here to tell ya, they don't do s*^# All I get is more slippage and no grip. Thats on the tire, haven't used em in the gym. I don't wear gloves for any lift. So I doubt I try these on any. So save your money or swing by Mahanys and try mine befor you commit to a pair.

                  Ya don't get good talkin about it!

                    no what they allow is gorrilla grip, not the gorilla grips, its a tacky towell, not the grip aids. Heres the link. http://www.gorillagold.com/ use can also get the tacky shop towels you can get a autoparts stores.

                      Well that stuff actually looks like it will work. I'll order some up. Surprised with my spelling I didn't stumble upon that stuff on google while searching. Thanks.

                        no problem, they actually help on the tire alot, prevents slippage, which protects the bicep.
