US Glove sizing is different from grip to grip. Please make sure you're ordering the correct size for your grip! To order the Hot Shot Buckle Grips, take a measurement, in inches, from the wrist to tip of the middle finger. These grips feature the same narrow cut as the original style but are constructed from a slightly heavier leather for more durability. With our innovative finger locking system that helps keep the fingers from sliping out of the finger holes. With sewn on leather wrapped dowel. Available in white with red trim. With single buckle wrist closure. Sold in pairs. We recommend the use of wristbands with these hand grips.
We recommend this hand grip for athletes that are between 70 lbs. and 120 lbs., level 7 or over. We do not recommend this grip for gymnasts whose body weight exceeds 120 lbs! These gymnasts should be using a grip such as our Millennium or RKO models, which have a wider palm piece providing more strength.

My daughter is a Level 5/6 gymnast (depending on the new numbers/levels), and loves these grips. She now has 3 pairs. That way we always have a set for competition if one gets lost or left behind. She loves the way they fit. The only thing she does not love is the "break in" period. The finger holes always seem a bit small and I have to put them on my fingers first...
A piece of sandpaper wrapped around a dowel or pencil works good for enlarging the holes just the right amount!

This is my kiddo's first pair of Dowl Grips, and she loves them. They are very soft, and the buckle vs. the velcor is amazing. I don't have to watch her play "tighten the velcro" any more. Fun Stuff...

This will be my 3rd pair of grips ordered by US gloves and they are so awesome to work with. My daughter is level 10 and had a rip in her gloves and needed gloves fast, US Gloves got them to her in 2 days, very unexpected but a great surprise. I will continue to order from US gloves because my daughter loves the products. She's the best judge!:)

Excellent quality constructed grips. These have pretty much become the standard for Compulsary/early Optionals. The shipping was super fast and the customer service is nothing short of excellent.
I would highly recommend doing business with US Glove for all of your gymnastics needs.
