    Is that your index finger?

    Someone should start a thread about callouses. I have massive ones on my right hand which makes pretty much immune to blisters.

    Yep, I have a callous exactly where you lost some skin. My favorite is the one I have on the lower left side of my palm, where the butt cap of my racket rests. Its a little over a half an inch long and feels like sand paper.

    I am spoiled and use only replacement grips... but still manage to get blisters once in a while. Overgrips are too hard for me. And how about Calleri using hard leather grip :confused:

    oh I see. You just use leather replacement grips? How long before you change them each time?

    No, no leather grips for me. I use Wilson and Pacific replacement grips (synthetic). I am amazed at some people being able to use leather grips, since they are too hard. Calleri is one example.... He uses it.

    Yea, how often do you replace your grips then? They must get slippery pretty fast, no?

    my big toe also experienced something like that. For that to happen you musy have peeled it immediately. I suggest you first puncture a small hole onto the blister. Drain all the liquid out and wait for 3-4 days. You can then peel it little by little and bandage it.

    I don't get problems that far up the finger either. Mine are right under the knuckles and right under the main joint on the fingers. I also have a pretty good callus going on my palm where the buttcap rests.

    An old friend of mine ripped his thumb from the base to the finger nail. Shock was the word of the day.
