good mid range grip

i've been using the control grip on my mids and long putts with good results, but it's been giving me a really bad blister. at first i just figured it'de just develop into a callis, but it still blisters and hurts.
i've tried a few different grips but none feel comfortable. should i just man up, and deal with the blisters to get good up shots?

sports tape worked for me for the 2 or 3 years it took my callus to develop. only had wear from my drives though.

heres my mid grip holding a spider. usually shoot that puppy 200-250', low and hot:



what would you call that grip?

that's the exact same grip I use for mids and putters. I just call it a modified fan grip.

Which finger is blistering? I used to have problems with blistering my finger too until I switched to my current grip. I use a similar grip ^^^^^ but have my index finger on the inside of the rim and my middle and ring finger stack up on top of my pinky.

I use a fan grip, sort of like Apoth and CW show only, my fingers are a little more spread out and my index finger is just a little more forward on the bead or where the bead would be.

wait till you start getting blood blisters under the callus...

i had one once under the callus on the inside of my middle finger. i throw a big anny shot at oak grove and continue on my way...then i notice my hand is wet. the thing popped through the athletic tape and was gushing. looked like id just got done stabbing someone.
