I just got new grips and on my first day of using them/ breaking them in I got a rip on my finger where the finger hole is. I have never had this issue before with my old grips and none of my teammates have before either. Is it normal to get rips from grips, just new grips, or is this a problem with my grips?

Pretty common, yeah.
You can train through it and strengthen that part of your fingers, or you can put a little piece of tape around your fingertips before you put the finger holes on.
