When was the last time you checked your fit? If it’s been more than a few years, you should definitely have your hand evaluated by a certified pro shop professional, but here are a few more signs that it’s time to check your grip:

  • Pain: If you finished the last season with pain in your hand, wrist, or anywhere in your arm, it could be linked to a poor fit.
  • Injury: If you’ve had an unrelated injury, but one that affects your ability to hold or roll the ball, a new grip could help compensate for any new physical issue you’re having.
  • Change in finger size: Whether from weight gain or loss, arthritis, or any other potential cause, if your fingers or joints have changed size, you’ll need to have the fit adjusted.
