Need advice on Levers for shorter fingers.

Has anyone got any solid recommendations on some quality adjustable brake/clutch levers that will give a much closer reach to the bars.?
I have a 2016 and the adjustable brake lever on its closest setting is still just a little too far away for my little stubbs.
edit- My main issue is that when i want cover my brake i need it just a bit closer to the bar. General braking isn't an issue as i am prepared for it and can adjust my hand accordingly, it's just i don't have enough purchase in those cover the brake/emergency braking situations.


Anyone solved this problem for themselves?
Thanks.

I've tried several brands over the years but I like the ASV Levers the best. They have a good range of adjust-ability, look great and are fairly easy to change.

Thanks, yes ASV and Pazzo have been on the short list, just not sure if they would be any closer to the bars over the standard adjustable lever.
Don't mind throwing down the dollars on quality if it solves the problem, i'll hang about and see if anyone chimes in that has tried either and can confirm bar distance is reduced.

Yes i like the look of ASV too, just not sure if they can be adjusted closer than the standard adjustable brake lever.
