Product Review:
I have been participating in crossfit for a couple years now. I was getting discouraged about my lack of progress on bar movements. Anytime I jumped up to a bar for t2b or kipping pull-ups I could only perform a couple of repetitions before having to let go from hand pain and fear of tearing. I had tried 4-5 different grips to no avail. Then finally I went for the bear complex carbon fiber 3 finger hole grips that I saw other people using at the gym.

It was instant change in my ability to maintain grip on the bar. I was able to dramatically increase my reps on the bar without the pain and fear of ripping my hands. The wrist straps are comfortable and do not dig in. I also got a larger size since I prefer not using the finger holes. The carbon fiber does seem to possess an almost sticker quality to the bar compared to other materials. At the end of the day these grips are worth every penny.
Along the way of learning muscle-ups, toes-2-bar, butterfly PU and other high bar moves my hands would tear. Those of you who are learning a new technique know my plight when you are making GREAT progress and now it is hindered with torn hands. Some grips gave protection longer than others, but it was just a matter of time before ripping again.

In the end, I was thinking it was bad technique, but that WAS NOT the case. I tried numerous hand grips ( four different POPULAR brands, not store knock-offs) recommended from fellow crossfiters to reading online reviews, I even made some from 1" athletic tape.

Now, I have been using the 3 hole Carbon Fiber grips for several weeks with the same workout intensity and frequency, and have not torn either hand..... I guess you could make the argument that I have gotten smarter OR better with each technique, but I believe that would be reaching. If the previous statement IS TRUE, then the Carbon Grip were a HUGE part with protecting my hands... Fact is, I can't use torn hands as an excuse now..... Just give them a try
