Yup! I'll set the bead/rim in the middle of the pad between the two joints, that's the most comfortable place for a mid if I'm not trying to power it, but it still scrapes over this spot as it leaves my hand.
I think I've prerubed myself
. But these guys had blisters on the middle finger and could solve it with a bit of tape. The thread pretty much shows the grip I use (2nd grip posted is about spot on). I don't think I could tape my index finger and still throw well.
