What Rod said. Lots of athletic woven tape. Tape your hands wrist over each finger to wrist, then wrap your wrist with tape. It will save your hands. If you don't regularly use liners, they might make matters worse. Make sure you have the right sized gloves as well. Most people order too large. Use the sizing chart in an Overtons catalog. If they are too big, they will move around and blisters will follow.
I have started using the palm pads. They help a lot.
Hold the handle in your fingertips, and enjoy yourself.
