      This product is helpful in relieving sore finger tips, but it dramatically reduces the ability to slide on the strings. The material they are made out of causes drag and traction, thus limiting your ability to slide. Other than this one problem, I find this product is useful for reducing finger tip pain and discomfort.

      Comments about Gorilla Tips Fingertip Protectors:

      I'm no professional, but I've been trying to learn to play the guitar for more than 40 years. One of the things that always held me back was the length of time required to build and maintain calluses. These finger guards enable you to extend extend playing as you build calluses and stamina. They do make your fingers sweat, and require periodic adjustment, but I'm very pleased with them. I bought two sizes, creating two complete sets, and I change them out as required.

              Comments about Gorilla Tips Fingertip Protectors:

              I use them for practice so that later my fingers aren't fatigued. It is like the marbles in your mouth to improve your speech. Fretboard fingering has to be more precise in order to get a clean note and therefore after you remove them everything seems easier and also improved. They also help control my calluses.

              • Don't Work For Pull-offs

              Best Uses

              • Extends Playing Time

              Comments about Gorilla Tips Fingertip Protectors:

              These finger tips really work. I am an older musician that plays a lot - banjo, mando and guitar. I have serious trouble maintaining my calluses to the extent they are not resilient enough to fret the strings. These tips work and extend playing time indefinitely -- you hardly know you have them on. Not good for pull-offs. I have tried other styles with limited success -- these work! My fingers measured for the large size - but the middle size works best for me -- carry several sets with me.

                Best Uses

                • Adds Needed Finger Length

                Comments about Gorilla Tips Fingertip Protectors:

                I had a serious injury to my hand that resulted in a partial amputation of my right index finger. It could not be repaired. The pain has been excruciating. No medical devices helped. Dressings were too rough. Bumping my finger/hand would send me out of the roof.

                Thankfully, I found these. After over two months of having difficulty coping with discomfort and loss of function of the remaining "stump" of my finger, these soft flexible and protective finger caps saved the day! Nothing could have been better.

                    I have a health condition which frequently gives me ulcers on the tips of my fingers. For years and years, it's been many times I couldn't play for months. Now, with this product, it won't happen anymore.
