    I don't think it's a blister either, it's just that the skin pulls off in a little circle and I can't hit anymore cause it hurts like a mother to hold the handle. What is going on? This is my third one in a different spot on the palm of my hand in like the past two months. It's never done this before.

    I have tried new skin but all that does is peel off pretty easily and it doesnt stop it from happening in the future. I have sports tape for my hand but I hate wearing it. This never happens to anyone else...

    I use a 4 1/2 and just started using overgrips not to long ago. I am using a Technifibre T-Fight 320. I use the Wilson Pro Overgrips. I will try to get pictures up when I can.

    Yeah..... It happened to me too.... A lot..... I just guess you'll get used to it or just get used to wearing the tape. Is your grip too small and uncomfortable? That could be a problem, but Im just guessing

    I have medium hands.
    I'm 5'11" and 150 odd lbs.
    Always 4 5/8 grip usually with overgrip atop.
    Never twisting or blisters.

    I know that sounds crazy, but try this... wait for initial soreness to go away, like 1 or 2 days. Then,...

    cut a potatoe in half, then rub the inside of the potatoe over the blistered area like you are erasing one of Djokivicfan4life's posts. Do this for 2-3 minutes, for 3 days, a couple times a day.

    Toughens the skin, but you can buy commercial hiking products too.
    But cause is the problem, so maybe we gotta NOT allow the racket to slip when we play.
