Comments about Pencil Grips:
I've had repetitive strain issues with my hands for years and have used many different kinds of pencil grips. This is the first one I've tried that is shaped this way. The material feels wonderful to the touch and the grip is the most comfortable I've ever used. The shape is also nice because if you lay your pencil down on a slanted surface it isn't going anywhere!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

My son loves using them and they keep his fingers in the correct position.
well made and good value
New pencil grips

Since I've been having trouble with my finger joints I found these pencil grips really help a lot. The grip is probably most useful when you have a favorite pencil you like using. Once you have it on your pencil it is a little hard to remove it, since it is made out of something that likes to grip.

Gel pencil or brush grips
By ABQ Rebel
I got these to ease fatigue while holding my brushes and pencils for hours, and was in for a surprise. I didn't take into account that they were meant for people who hold their pencils in the tradional way. The curves and bulges are soft and comfortable for most people, although I thought they were a little large for my hand. But I never held my pencils the was most people are now taught, in fact, I had a nun who did batting practice on my knuckles whenever she walked by! But these are a terrific idea, the kids in my class with large enough hands love them. I hope that some more general pencil grips will become available for rebels like me!
useful and comfortable
from San Jose, CA
I have the trifecta of arthritis, tendonitis, and carpal tunnel, so anything that makes it easier to use my hands and fingers for longer is a plus. An occupational therapist pointed out these grips to me in an ergonomics catalog where they struck me as being a little pricey. I was pleased to find them for less at Dick Blick. I ordered one to try and it makes holding drawing media much easier, while still allowing control. Fairly easy to get on and off, but I'll definitely be ordering more. Wish they came in a variety of sizes for use with brushes.

Pencils grips help a lot if you tend to hold your writing instruments really tight. I have been using them for both ink pens, graphite and colored pencils. The grips help with reducing pressure & grasping drawing implements when you have arthritis . Grips are harder to put on some drawing pens that have caps because you have to push the grip farther on the barrel of the pen but it does work. This product would be good for kids also to help them hold pencils easier.
Comfortable but bulky
from Silverton, Oregon
My hands are fairly small, with short fingers, so the grip seemed a bit bulky to me. I think the design is great, though. Wish they made a mini version.
I would buy more of this product.

As an artist who works mostly in graphite and colored pencil, this is a wonderful product and reduces fatigue when drawing.

I have had hand surgery and have been using them for three years. It is much easier to write with. I have even given them to friends and they love them
