I am using Nubs now for over 5 years and they just recently broke down. I mainly used them on my thumbs for deadlifts to mitigate pressure and in general to minimize skin irritation during KB swing and Pull Ups.
The advantage in comparison to tape is significant. Especially because the tape can start to get wrinkles. No chance with Nubs.
I recommend them every time somebody is asking or I see someone struggling with tape. Additionally is simply saves money on the long run.
I noticed that I would abrade my thumbs with certain grips and movements. The NUBS fit my thumbs perfectly (use the sizing chart) and have completely eliminated the problem. Seems to help with the grip too

Love these things
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 .
