Span

 

 

What’s the right span for you?  If you’re getting finger or thumb pain, it just might be too long or too short. The easiest way to check is insert the thumb into the thumbhole and just lay the fingers across the fingerholes. The crease of the fingers on a fingertip ball should be close to the top of the grip. You can be a hair off one way or the other, but if the crease only comes to the middle or bottom of the hole(bottom edge of the grip if you use them) then it’s too long. The reverse is true if the creases are past the top of the holes, your span is too short. And a pic is worth a thousand….somethings. This is borrowed from CGeorge:
