My daughter was super excited to get her first pair of dowel grips. She's used palm grips initially and her coach suggested these grips. The narrow palm is good for transitioning because her hand can have more contact with the bar but will still have protection against rips.
I measured from the base of her palm to the tip of her middle finger to determine the correct size. The Med fits her perfectly since she measured 6.5 inches.
The grips needed to be broken in and the finger holes had to be adjusted. But that's typical with grips to get the right fit.
She's very happy and couldn't wait to start using them!
If you ask a gymnast, grips are more than a piece of leather. Molded to the shape of your hand, they become an extension of the athlete, creating the exact feeling needed to swing with confidence and put in the repetitions in training. It's the familiarity you feel when adjusting to a new set of bars, so you can hit that routine just right in competition. It's the symbol of progression and dedication, when your coach finally lets you get measured for your first pair, or you've worn yours out with all the hard work you've put into practice. Whether it's your first pair, or you're buying a backup pair to make it through your competitive season, we offer an entire line of grips to meet your needs.
