My DD just got her first (and second) pair of grips. I don't know all of the terminology but her coach wants her to have something called a pixie grip that is more narrow with buckles instead of velcro. We measured her hand and ordered from the company her coach wanted us to order from, Frank Endo. She measured on the boarder of a 00 and a 0. We ordered a 00 and it was way too small and the holes were way too small. Before we sent them back she tried on a teammate's 0 and they were also too small. So, we went ahead and returned the first pair and ordered a size 1. The size 1 fits great in length, but the holes are super big. They go all the way over her knuckles. She then tried on another teammate's size 1 and the holes were also too big. Is there a way to get the grips without the holes and we can just put them in ourselves? Can I ask the grip company for a special order with smaller holes? I hesitate to keep ordering more and from another company when the sizes seem kind of off and with the shipping and reordering it's getting kind of pricey. The other two girls whose grips my daughter tried on got theirs from the same company and have no problems, so possibly my daughter just has weird hands. I saw when I searched the past forums that people had stuffed foam in their grip holes, but I don't want that, just grip holes that really fit. Any suggestions??
