Gloves?

I throw a lot of forehand drives, and lately the bottom of the disc has been ripping my fingers, is wearing a glove on my throwing hand legal? Thanks

Yes, you can wear a glove.

I have the strangest callouses on my release points on my throwing hand.

It eventually stops bleeding and becomes scar tissue. Overcome and adapt.

The under armor gloves work pretty good. They are like receiver gloves with little stickies on them with good grip(not too grippy), and fit tight. I wear them under 30 degrees, and yes they are legal. I also wore them after my Boss ripped off of chunk of my middle finger knuckle. After it callus's and you play regularly it won't blister anymore or hurt.

Innova I think the phrase you are looking for is "adapt and overcome." Those under armor gloves sound promising. I will remember those for next winter.

Here is a great pair of gloves to wear. I don't think anyone would ever bother you either if you had these on:

I prefer this glove as it works well with the power grip.
