No More RipsThese are fantastic for pull-ups. I've never felt like they were too thick on or too slick on the bar. They've made it so my callouses don't get too thick and my hands don't rip. I couldn't ask for anything more. Now I can focus on getting the right kind of ripped ;)

Too slippery to be useful at allThese grips are slippery to the point that they are completely useless on a pull-up bar. I have a habit of tearing my palms on large sets of pull-ups (30-50 reps) and bought these to replace a pair of grips I made from slicing up an old set of leather lifting straps. With the V2s on, immediately upon grabbing the pull-up bar it slips completely into my fingertips, and I can barely eke out a set of 10, all the while feeling like my finger pads are about to rip off because they're supporting my full body weight.
I realize that their tackiness could improve with a little sweat and chalk break-in time, but I don't know how that could happen seeing as how completely unusable they are out of the box.

Great for barbell work, horrible for pullups.My primary purpose is purchasing these grips was to protect my hands from tearing while I did pull ups. While they did achieve this, the thickness of the grips posed a serious grip problem. On a standard 1.25in pull up bar these grips made me feel like I was holding onto an extra thick bar and definitely compromised my grip strength. To make matters worse they did not stay in place very well when I jumped up to grab the bar and ended bunching up in my palms. I had to take a few seconds on each set and fix my grip, which added time to my overall score. I will say that I love using them with a 28mm barbell. They feel pretty comfortable and secure when doing oly and deadlifts. I'll also like them on my 0.75in pull up bar at home. But on your standard 1.25in pull up bar they are just no good.

Great GripsI only have been using them for about a month but so far they are awesome. Make sure you chalk them first. They are a very comfortable fit. Great product.
