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.

        Cut my finger so bought these to protect the injured fingertip. They work great at protecting and can at least continue to play without further slicing up my finger, I bought small and medium size. These stretch pretty well so buy the smallest you think may fit. So far they have held up well although do not slide up the string as well as a bare finger.

              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 got these for my grandchildren that I am teaching the basic chords to. They are 9 & 11. The girl is 9 and the boy is 11. with their small hands they have problems stretching for the base strings so we're concentrating on the 4 note chords. My granddaughter complained about the strings hurting her fingers. These helped a lot with that.

              I am just learning guitar and haven't built up calluses yet. I've been using the finger protectors when my fingers get sore to allow myself to play longer. I mostly just use on my 2nd finger since that's the one that gets the most sore. It will sometimes start to slip when my finger gets sweaty but it's not a huge issue.

              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.

                  I lost the end of my middle finger just below the nail and can't play most chords because of lack of reach. These finger tips help with reach and things are getting better. I my case, they aren't the complete answer but do help some.

                      Comments about Gorilla Tips Fingertip Protectors:

                      I have been playing guitar for forty years and would never have considered needing something like this. However, recently I spent a lot of time practicing on a guitar that needed a fret job and, without being aware of it, I was pressing harder than usual and formed deep grooves in my fingertips that started to interfere with my playing. I had a fret job done and I am back to playing lighter, but the Gorilla Tips have allowed me to "rehab" my fingers and keep playing. The design is good with a little more thickness in the fingertip portion of the protectors. They do slip a little sometimes while playing and they do slightly interfere with playing, so I definitely would not use them while performing for others - but they are fine for practice. I would recommend this for any player who wants to practice more but is having issues with the fingertips hurting or becoming excessively grooved. I have also been using chapstick and a pumice stone to help smooth out the callouses and grooves, but the Gorilla Tips have made all the difference. Without these I would have had to take some time off from playing. I am an average sized male (5'10") with average sized hands (medium). I ordered medium and these seem to be the right size although I think small would work as well with a snugger fit. The fourth protector is sized smaller for the little finger, and I have been using this on my first finger along with the regular size as double protection for that finger that has needed the most protection for now. I don't have any problem getting them on and off fairly quickly although it does take practice to find the technique to grab the edges to pull them on snugly. I find that you have to roll them up a bit to be able to pull them off. So far they are surprisingly durable. I give this product four stars because it's not perfect but I have trouble imagining how these protectors could be designed any better.

                      As a classical guitarist and teacher I had to figure out a way to protect my fingernails when playing bass guitar, so I tried Gorilla Tips. I'm aware that they were originally designed for left hand fingertips, but with some oil for lubrication and flatwound strings on my bass they work very well.

                          I found these easy to get on and very effective in protecting my fingers during play. Did not impede my playing ability at all, which admittedly is limited, but I was able to practice much longer with these on. They did seem to tear easily and wear out fairly quickly though. I will be buying more!

                            I have been playing most of my life until I developed severe psoriasis that effect my hands. My fingertips would sometimes crack open making playing extremely painful if not impossible. I have tried all kinds of different medicines that help for a while but eventually become ineffective. These work for me because they even though at times in can be a little painful when I have to play and am having an outbreak at the same time, it keeps me from having to stop completely. I am so glad I found these. The only problem I have with them is that they might slip some while playing leaving a small bubble on the tip.

                            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.

                                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.

                                I bought this for my dad who is missing half his fingertip and has trouble playing open chords clean. Cheaper than a plastic surgeon and no downtime for healing!!! Great product!!!

                                  Very Cool item, really protects finger tips for beginners. Makes metal strings painless, but still allows the string to be felt by finger tips.

                                      does allow you to play somewhat with an injured finger,but I feel the they are using the wrong rubber compound (to stickey).Also the contact point should take in the entire finger tip just short of the first joint to avoid the contact point from sliding all over the place. TIP: I cover these up with the tips off a rubber glove with a way less grabby compound and it makes all the difference.

                                        I tried these out on the index finger that I cut through the bone some months back on a table saw. They do help some what but the cushioned tip is way to small and slides when the outer part of the tips are used on chords and various positions. Plus the rubber material is to grabby. I find that tripling the finger tips of the thick blue rubber gloves that EMS workers typically use feel more natural and the rubber compound slides pretty much like a bare finger.
