i know little about these particular mallets... but it sounds to me like you are simply squeezing too tight. if you do not gently feel the natural vibration of the stick in your hand... you are without doubt, gripping the mallet with tension instead of total relaxation. no pain should ever result from playing correctly. do not hold the stick, simply guide the stick. relax, and then relax even more. shake out the tension every few minutes while you practice, and then do it again and again. the vibration of the stick will soothe your hand if you are relaxed enough... and one can never be relaxed enough... it is a life journey...
