So my daughter just replaced her first pair of grips. She had the older pair for about three years. They are still in pretty good shape but she feels like they might be a bit too small- but not terrible . Her first pair were single buckle. The new pair are double buckle. She hates them right now! I know that it can take a while to break in new grips. She’s gotten multiple rips since the new pair. She’s struggling to do skills that she totally has. We are still at least 3 1/2 months off of her first competition. She does have a couple of skills that she really needs to solidify soon though. She’s super tempted to just go back to her old pair. She’s had the new pair for just a week and has used them at four practices. Should she hang in there with a new pair? I’m not surprised that this has been hard for her. She struggles to even break in a new pair of wristbands!
