I think they're brilliant, comfortable and grippy - but only if you put them correctly, and only if the handle of your bat is the correct thickness for you.

My only problem with them is you can't really put anything under them to make a handle thicker.

I found them pretty awful on my bat . found it made the squeaking noise new pads made and bat just spun in my hands. I think they work well with aero gloves  but not sure

aero grips feel lovely holding the bat with bare hands but as soon as you wear gloves there simply isnt enough grip for my liking

I am using a half aero grip underneath a puma grip and it feels nice.

The Aero grips are only supposed to be used with the Aero gloves. When the grip gets 'warm' it will become 'sticky' and more grip but it will only make more grip with the silicone palms of the Aero gloves. This is what i understand anyway. Our 2nd team skipper uses it with Aero gloves and he loves it

I've used one of these for a few seasons now.  They do wear out - just like any other grip.  I change mine each season. I've used them both with silicone coated Aero gloves and GN and GM gloves and the grip is much better.  They work better than rubber grips.  I used electrical tape underneath to bulk them out.  I read somewhere that they are about the same thickness as 1.5 grips.
