Painful calluses, forehand players

Hey guys, this a question for players who play a lot and drive forehand. Have you had a callus develop on the side of your index finger? if so how do you deal with the beginning stages? If I throw too much, it will start to really affect my drives in a negative way. Right now I am using band aids to slow the pain a little but it still happens. Is there a thicker material like gauze I can securely wrap around my finger without the callus acting up? Or do you have another suggestion?

Just a dab of superglue will do, let it dry before touching the disc though! Unless you want to turn into Edward Dischands.

super glue? Can you explain your reasoning behind that?

superglue will dry to form an extra layer of "skin".

you may also try out new-skin

That makes sense, this new skin stuff looks interesting too. Definitely will pick a tube up before my next round.

I feel your pain man! As a primary flicker, I've got quite the callus. If it hurts when you throw, take a day or two off to let it harden up. Work on your backhand in the mean time or try another grip.

Check your grip. Throw off the middle finger.

I'd be curious to know what grip you are using as well.

Also, where are you playing at? I think weather would affect it a lot.

Final question, do your discs have a lot of flashing on them?

In order,
Most of the time power grip, bent index finger, straight middle finger
Abilene, TX. Weather varies, but I usually don't play out in the cold
Last, no, none of my discs have hardly any flashing on them.

This happens to me, I use 1" self sticking bandages. I might try the super glue thing though.
