Reisport HIGH BAR Grips - Buckle Reviews

Basic grip used by many

Posted

Pros: Excellent grip that is fairly easy to break in.

Cons: The leather stretches after normal wear and tear

Standard grip used by many.  I have nothing but praise for this grip as it has given me several years of excellent use with little problems.  However, I would highly advice buying a new pair at least every six months.  The grip stretches from basic wear and tear.

Reisport High Bar Grips - Buckle

Posted

Pros: Don't come undone

Cons: Take longer to put on

I recently switched from Reisport velcro to Reisport buckle grips. I like the buckles better because they don't come undone.

Great Grips...most of the time

Pros: great feel once broken in

Cons: inconsistency with the leather

I have used Reisport grips since I started gymnastics and I feel comfortable with them. I have always preferred buckle grips because I don't have to worry about the unraveling while I am competing, and I feel like I can make them tighter then velcro. The leather on Reisport has been hit and miss over the past couple years, but for me they are still the best. I try and find grips that have hard leather, because they tend to last longer (even though they take longer to break in).

The only grips I will use

Posted

Pros: easy to break in, last a long time

Cons: prone to stretching out

From 12 years old until I was 23 (and even when I limp around the gym periodically now) I've always used Reisport buckle grips. I had to use others in various times of need over the years, but the Reisports were always my favorites. With velcro grips, I always felt like they loosened up in the course of a routine, but with buckles they felt very secure throughout. The only downside to these grips is that they can tear up your wrists pretty bad, but I used tape for wrist bands and jammed some foam under the grips and was generally pretty set. I still put on my old Reisports every once in a while and they just feel like home to me...great grips.
