Escape the tape! With Nubs® thumb sleeves, there’s no more dealing with bunched-up, sweaty tape that falls off mid-WOD and leaves your skin and equipment sticky.
I usually use tape for my cleans/snatches . So far I have appreciated these more than tape . The tape tends to roll up from hook grip . These sleeves stayed in place, no rolling up at the base , prevents thumb tears and helps with a better grip . I can’t speak on longevity and how long they will last gripping on an aggressive barbell . I feel confident it will be a better investment over tape . So far , I can say for sure , I like the functionality of the sleeve more than tape .
These Thumb Sleeves work exceptionally well! Not only do they fit snugly, but they also cover just the right amount of your thumbs to provide the correct amount of support for the hook-grip.
I found them, I tried them, I STILL love them. Always consistent and high quality. So much better than tape that it's noit even worth comparing.
Been in CrossFit for 15 years. Used to tape my thumbs and wasted a lot of money on tape. Nubs do the job even better than tape an last for years!
I ordered the Nubs thumb sleeves from a retailer and had an issue with getting my order. I contacted the company and they immediately took care of the situation and sent me out the sleeves. I've only been able to use them once so far due to a procedure. I do think I will order a xsmall next time as the small slid up on my thumb a little bit. But, overall I think it's a great product and company.
