Default I've got blisters on mah' fingers,

and I'm throwing all Helter Skelter!

This is my 6th year playing and I haven't changed anything about my grip since 2011. I developed a blister just above the crease/joint of my index finger in August 2012. It's very uncomfortable to throw mids and drive with putters. Drivers (due to the shallower rims?) aren't a problem unless it's already aggravated. I think Comets are to blame, since I got my first one around then, and the bead sits right in the crook of that joint with my grip.

It's hardened up a lot, I was hoping it would just turn into a callous and I could get back to the business of throwing Buzzzes, but it's still painful after four/five months... Even with playing only once a week, if at all, in the winter. I wrap it with antibiotic ointment at night and I've taken a nail file to it more than a few times...

Any other RHBH have this happen? Solutions that don't involve changing to a fan grip? I've had to change a lot in my game to compensate for this, and my mids mostly sit in my bag unused.
