Best way to practice shooting

i've been shooting recently and getting cuts in my hands after only a couple hundred shots. What's the best way to get around that, stronger grip maybe? Better fit glove lol I have no idea i think maybe a combo of the two would work. Also how do you guys hold your stick when ur shooting wrist shots + snap shots.

Cuts in hands? Are you getting blisters? If so, gloves might be too big. I like them to fit super tight when new and then break in.

I keep the hands shoulder width apart, hold the butt end in the palm of my top hand.

You could always get some vagisil...

Nah, cuts/blisters are to be expected. If worse comes to worse, just tape your hands.

it could just be your hands need to calius (sp?) up on those spots or your gloves are to big (which i doubt)...if you wear any rings i would take them off

my ring has never given me trouble, do you think your hands could just be too dry

i think it may be a number of things. i dont know how you shoot or the weather, so i cant say anything about your technique or dry hands. try taping your hands or more snug gloves. thats a good place to start

Your gloves are definitely too big if they can chafe your hands, shouldn't rub around at all when you shoot if you have your stick gripped properly.

Seconded. I decided to try some 14" gloves, and while they fit and give me that extra wrist coverage I wanted, the glove had a bit too much room in some portions of the glove where I held the stick, and it rubbed my hand raw.

I have switched back to my 13" gloves with a hole in the palm, and have been happy ever since. Even thinking about repalming these gloves even though they weren't super expensive because they fit some comfortably.
