Rated 1 out of 5 by from pretty but painful I bought this product last year. Been meaning to review it for a while. I owe it to my fellow fisherpeople. Wonderful fit, long lasting. Failure in the skin protection department. For years I enjoyed the old orvis tan stripping guards and never had an issue with the burns on finger. Without a doubt something is wrong with the thickness of these Buff guards. I have repeatedly looked down at my finger after stripping line upon hook set to see if the guard is on my finger as it felt that exposed. Burns have been visible and recurring even after changing to new guards. I write this as a warning that unless Buff have increased thickness you would be better off finding the old orvis tan guards. Know that this review comes from a long time fan of Buff and owner of numerous face/head buffs which have been doubling as protection these days.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does what it’s supposed to I have only had one chance to use them so far. Caught about 20 small 1-3lb bass that day. Usually my fingers would have a little line burn after a day like that, but they kept that from happening that day.
