Or, just don't tell anybody.

I'm still working, but I'll see if I can get something online in the next few days.

Thanks for all the advice guys, I gave new skin a shot and it seems to work pretty well, I will also give the self adhesive wraps a shot.

You can sand your disc no matter what. Chuck even posted before saying that you could interpret 'light sanding' as sanding with a lighter for those people who prefer to use a lighter to fix dings and such.

Form callouses, don't rip them off. I've got pretty serious callouses on by pointer and middle finger, and a blood blister on the inside of my pointer finger from field work.

I too throw mostly FH and have the same gnarly calluses everyone else has spoken of. I try to let the callus form as best as possible early in the season.

I use a finger-less paintball glove when my callus is not fully developed and my finger is hurting.

Also something I'd like to note, when you do develop that callus, be sure to keep your hands as dry as possible when playing in wet or humid conditions. Humidity and wetness will cause the callus to soften up and rip off, then you are back to square one.

From my experience of throwing strictly forehands for the first 5 years I played, I found that when you are using the side of your finger instead of the pad of the finger on the disc's rim to "snap", that generates a lot more blisters because of the drag.

It's also detrimental to your distance if you use the side of your finger, fyi, so make sure that finger pad is flat on the rim. It almost feels like you're twisting your wrist; it's awkward like a lot of things you have to develop in disc golf.

But I always wrap a few layers of medical/hockey tape (that fabric-esque kind) around my palm, as my blisters would show up at the base of my index finger.

Just pay attention that your fingers' pads are pushing against the disc, or I've also just wrapped up individual fingers. The soft tape stays on pretty well and didn't interfere with my grip/release. I've gotten a lot of questions about it on the course, and several people that I've suggested it to have been happy with how it feels and like the flexibility. Just don't wrap your hand so tight you can't flex it (obviously).

I know that callus there sucks, because the disc slides over it every time, haha.
