I was reading on this topic this morning and thought...glad I don't have that problem. Then this afternoon in the studio, I rubbed my wrist a bit raw. The forum jinxed me!!! Then I noticed I was using type of bat I haven't used in a long time...the amaco black composite ones. They are a bit on the rough side.
You are so right. I've actually ground my fingernails down to tender skin when throwing a wide bottomless form on these plastic bats. The textured side is just like sandpaper.
