It's all preference as in everything else in drumming, everyone has their comfort zone. I still don't understand why people would use them to prevent blisters though, because you'll never build up your calouses that way. It is understandable though for drummers who don't play as often and don't have the opportunity to build up calouses. The blister phase can last around two months in my experience, before you get calouses. I dunno, just ramblin here... :wink:
