    Hey guys , lately I've been getting blisters on my hands like when I play at my best , like when I smash my grip it starts to dig into my skin, here's the areas where it ImageUploadedByTapatalk1384033142.334761.jpg ImageUploadedByTapatalk1384033177.934392.jpg
    Basically the bottom left side corner of my palm and near the top on my middle finger , it occurs when I smash hard and lots. ImageUploadedByTapatalk1384033223.684521.jpg
    This is yonex wet grip I believe? It is not super grap because it's not super tacky and how do I avoid these blisters? Are there different grips that can avoid this? I plan on buying a pack of rkep g10 grips to try. Thanks

    Having not seen your stroke, I'm just guessing that your technique and power is not focused enough. Thus leading to excess force on your palm. :p

    Concentrate on focusing all your power completely into the moment of strike, then relax immediately after. Start with slow swings, then gradually increase speed and acceleration as you're able to focus your power. This is called technique. :)

    And remember, loose grip all the time except just before and at strike.
