    Haven't tried these in the flats yet, but the strip guards seem to really fit well and I'm hoping they will be exactly what I need to protect my fingers on those long mornings on the flats. I'm glad they come with an extra as I'm hoping to wear them out in August !

    finger sleeves (stripping guard) - 7/16/2014
    By: from Ithaca, NY

    These finger covers are excellent! I had a knuckle replacement last fall and sometimes the finger gets a little cold. These sleeves keeps the finger warm and are very attractive as well. I know they are for fly casting but work well in my case as well!

    I fish sinking lines for stripers and the line cuts my fingers. The stripping gaurds have prevented this from happening. love them.

    These finger guards will not gurantee fish but will make the experience more enjoyable when you are hooked up. I use all 3 guards each time I am in the bay or on the flats. Orvis continues to offer the smartest and best products.

    Durable and comfy. Does a great job preventing repetitive line burns on finger(s). I use these primarily for saltwater fishing where you are constantly stripping line. My fingers are much happier with these.

    finger saver - 5/6/2014
    By: from Midwest

    If there's a better way to protect a finger from the predation of fishing line friction, then I don't know it. It saves index fingers ravaged by constant wetness, fish-hook jabs and filet knife indiscretions from distracting pain sensitivity.
