I'm 1/2 Italian and have the Italian curse...I sweat like a MFer when it's really hot n humid.

I use a birdie bag. The other thing that has helped more than I would've thought is a sweat band on my throwing forearm. I always looked at this as a sort of affectation, but if you sweat a lot, you'd be surprised how much of the sweat on your hands isn't coming from your hands, but running down your arm.

And enough dry towels of course. Those 3 things have all but eliminated the damp hands issues I've had.

Mike, those blisters on your hand look nasty - heal up! Here's a review on the Friction gloves - Baysinger guys seem to like them:



Neutron plastic, along with many others, gets real slippery for me if in snow or wet - I might have to try these out at some point also

Hopefully that like works. I use the gorilla gold tacky towel on rainy days to get my fingers to get some extra grip on the disc.
Last bag I had lasted me a good season. FYI little goes a long way

It's not going to help with blisters and don't know it would reduce sweat but f you're just looking for something to help give a little tackier grip try Sortkwik. It's called a fingertip moisturizer but it was developed for people that sort paper. I find that after application and a minute for it to dry my fingers are tacky and I get a lot better grip.

So... Do you want a band-aid or a fix? You talk down to me but im just here to help and keep it real. Sorry i dont see any top pros with huge finger issues and last time i checked they throw just as hard as anyone.

Think about how fun it would be knowing anytime you throw over 300' you might rip the skin on your fingers off. Imagine pulling up to hole 1 with your buddies and after one single throw your throwing hand is ****ed and you're stuck playing lefty the rest of the round.

I'm just trying to avoid that. If a glove or some chalk or some tape will let me enjoy the game I love like a normal person does I'll be happy.

Could you post a pic of your power grip? (under side of the disc)

I'm still at a loss as to how this can happen to the tip of your middle finger. Even if it were happening to your index finger, I would expect the damage to occur about 1/3 down and not on the tip.

Well that sure doesn't show anything unusual so I'm still stumped as to how this happens to the tip of your middle finger...

Mike look into paper tape. It's in the first aid section. It's thin and provides some protection for your hand and doesn't affect grip at all.
