Ok, who uses them and what kind are thought the best of? I found a ref to this one from a thread some time back:
http://www.amazon.com/Trim-TRIM-CALLOUS-REMOVER/dp/B000AA9I2Q/sr=8-12/qid=116417 1597/ref=sr_1_12/104-6609024-7665516?ie=UTF8&s=hpc
I just don't want to waste time & $$ on buying something that doesn't work.

The best, easiest, most efficient thing I've used:

Dremel those puppies off!

LOL! Becca, you are joking right? No, I know you aren't. Novel idea! Prolly works great.

Jeff, also a good idea but my aversion to sharp edges slicing me....ugh! I'm a wimp!

I don't have a dremel. Would a belt sander be ok?

What works well for me is to either soak them in water, or just when you are taking a shower, they soften up, then use a pumice stone (lava rock) to rub them down.

I've been using the callous rasp linked in the first post for at least 6 months. In that time, I haven't had a single rip (knock on wood).

I think these things are like $5 at Walgreens.

After rowing for 4 years in college I had callouses on my hands that I could hide needles in. The best thing I found was a cheap emory board. You can toss it when your done, and they are easy to find. Other guys went as far as to use some foot bath treatment on their hands then using the pumice stone. Or you could just chew them off.

Bench grinder . . . (j/k).

Actually, I do use a Dremel (no, not kidding). Just be careful.

Emery board works great, too, but if the Dremel is already out . . .
