WEARING THE GRIPS: There is a technique to wearing grips correctly. Many people do not know the this unless they were a gymnast at one point. Therefore, at first impression, the grips may appear too big despite sizing correctly. Swipe through the photos to see a detailed explanation to understand this technique and what to expect the grips should look and feel like when wearing them. 

ALL of our grips are designed to be worn up on the wrist snug against the bottom of the palm, also to have slack in the palm area in order to be able to provide a fold of material over the bar creating a "dowel effect". Therefore, the grips are not designed to fit tight on the palm like a second skin. The dowel effect is what helps you get a really efficient grip and helps take pressure off the calluses to prevent ripping. We have videos on victorygrips.com that also provides this information.

Hei guys, I just got a pair of the victory tactical grips and not sure if I should love them or find it very uncomfortable. The grip on the bar is crazy and using them the first time I basically felt glued onto the bar without using any chalk. One problem occurred though and I am not sure if it is because of me wearing/using them the wrong way or it takes some getting used to. When I use the 3-finger grips as supposed to with a dowel effect, a lot of my bodyweight is transferred to the wrist/wrist straps which I find pretty painful if doing several reps of any movement as far as rubbing open the skin a bit below the Thenar muscles and having some pain for two days over the radius close to the wrist. Am I doing something wrong? Or does the material need some breaking in to get softer, my wrist some time to adjust? Would be happy if you have a comment on this as I love how it improves the grip on the bar and no ripping so far :) Thanks and keep up the good work, Laura
