Stripping Guards -
By: iamdave1234 from St John USVI
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) -

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.

We found them very comfortable,durable and necessary. Stripping guard eliminates finger burn when stripping line.

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.
Streamer Time!!!!! -

I was feeling self-conscious and silly ordering these. But after using them I'm really glad I pulled the trigger. When you strip streamers all day you can split your finger and in my experience it takes forever to heal. These guards prevent that from happening. They are lycra and you'll forget they are there after about 5 minute
Never thought I'd buy these, but I love em -

I always thought - why would anyone ever buy these? Why wouldn't you just where gloves? But I finally broke down and bought a set. It turns out, I love em. They are so light and strong, you forget you are wearing them. And anyone that has spent a day stripping streamers for big fish will tell you, you can burn your fingers up without protection. I also love the little case them come in - so that you don't lose them in your pack or vest.
