Finger plasters for djembefolas

It is now quite some years that I'm getting blisters on my fingertips on monthly basis. I've elaborated several ways of protecting my fingers when the blisters are already present, using combinations of some kind of sliced plasters and medicine tape. But now I found these plasters that are totally suitable for djembefolas.
The key qualities to search for are:
- Extra length, so it can be fixed better and you don't need to combine with medicine tape.
- Extra glue, so it sticks longer and they don't fall of when your hand sweats.
- Elasticity, so you feel more comfortable and it doesn't loose its grip because of the bending of the fingers and because of hitting the skin.
