    WAG Are finger tips from new grips normal?

    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...

    Parents Ugh! New grips!

    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...

    WAG New Grips

    My daughter is a level 6 and is now starting to need grips. She has small hands and just wants to be able to grip the bar better. Some girls on her team are using reisport, hot shots, and gibson. What brand do you prefer? Would you recommend single buckle or double buckle? Thanks!

    WAG Should I get new grips?

    So I've had a pair of Blue 10.0 Grips for 2 1/2 years I think. I love them, they're super broken in, and I'm used to them. I think they are too small, but I'm hesitant to switch because bigger ones feel different. Thoughts?

    Do I need new grips?

    About two years ago, I purchased Ginnasta velcro grips with dowels (narrow width I think) and have been using them ever since. From the beginning they weren't great, I couldn't get a great grip on the bar and I would slip off the bar doing simple things. I thought I was just breaking them in...

    WAG Reccomendation for new grips

    Hey everyone. I have a 10 y/o DD that is teetering between repeating 5 or going to 6 that has had the same grips for almost two years. I know at this point she needs new ones. Any reccomendations for grips? Companies, how to measure, belt vs. velcro, cost comparison, etc… Thanks in advance...

    WAG New Grips... which is best?

    I don't know which pair of grips I should get to replace the ones I have now. I don't want buckles, I was thinking of getting Reisport grips. I don't know which ones are awesome and which ones aren't worth it. Any opinions...? thank you! :)

    MAG New grips don't slip

    I bought my first pair of grips for high bar and they have caused nothing but grief. I followed instructions for working the leather soft, and made sure not to buy a size too large. I chalk up generously before I start any exercises. But I get a lot of screetching when it does slide, but most of...

    Several questions about new grips

    DD's team was told to get grips for the first time. We were told what kind to order and given a website. I went on the website and to pick the size it asks for the hand measurment with the smallest size being for 5". How exact does that measurement need to be? I'm guessing pretty exact since...

    Parents DD going crazy over new grips

    Hello again. I was just wondering if anybody has any 'magic' words to say to a little one who is struggling with the getting used to new grips. DD just completed her level 5 season. She has never used grips before because her previous coach said her hands were too small. Her hands must have...
