  I like it

That strip saved the keel of my boat a couple of times. As for adhesion it's correct that the strip might have adhesion problems on the transition of a plumb stem or a plumb stern. I watched the local paddle shop hastily apply the strip to my wife's boat and it puckered going up the stem. For my boat I purchased the strip and applied it at home carefully with a heat gun with no adhesion problems.

I would slice segments out of the strip to help it around a corner rather than not use it because of the strip puckering.

I know of paddlers who put the strip on their hard chines as well as the keel.
