Hello, I'm new here (and to fencing in general) and I'm in desperate need of advice.
- You see, I have very small hands and short, Homer Simpson fingers, and I'm having trouble finding the correct grip to suite my needs. Since I'm just a novice , I've been using my instructor's equitment; a generic begginer's French Grip Foil.
I tried Pistol Grip, but I find it uncomfortable; however, French Grip isn't that much better; my thumb barely touches the top of the grip (excuse bad terminology)
Is there any quirky, offbeat foil grips that I should check out? I live in NYC, so I shouldn't have any trouble tracking anything down; and my funds are sufficient - I'm all for ordering some limited, discontinued, rule-grey area-ed grip.
Sorry for taking up your time...
