well i got to use it tonight and i can sum up my conclusion on the magic carpet it one word
AWSOME!
i cant remember ever being able to have that tight of a thumb hole fit and still be able to get out of a ball so clean. the magic carpet is the best thing i have ever used for a thumbhole.

This Bowlers product is great!  It definitely helps getting the feel of a tight thumb hole. I use (meant used - [corrected as per critique] in down thread post) it as a training device.

The bowling product helps in keeping the thumb in the proper position. A straight thumb with no thumb crimping.

I did however, find them rather problematic in humid conditions or during the heat of the summer. I suppose as an adjustment one might use chap stick or lip balm on the back of the thumb, or a cooling agent of some sort to counteract such heat related problems. (never went that far with it - just re drilled smaller thumb hole urethane slug and tailored the back of thumb hole to my specific knuckle with a workout tool -thus I'm not currently using the product - I STILL SPEAK HIGHLY OF THE PRODUCT - and of Ron Clifton!)

Bottom line, the product allowed me to SEE the merits of a tighter snug thumb hole, ie, relaxing my grip, recognition of the perfect release, and free arm swing.
IMHO, all elite or scratch bowlers should strive for a tighter snug thumb hole in an effort to keep the speed up, and have a crisp fresh release.

The Magic Carpet is a GREAT Product!

I've been using it for about 3 years now, I also love the feel of a nice snug thumb and still be able to come out of the ball clean.. Nice too that the house I bowl in carries Rons product..

It rocks.  I'm about 15 pins above where I was last year, and I should get better.  I can finally have a snug-fitting thumb that won't bind up on me, and allows me to "hit" the ball at the bottom of my arm swing.

So when you bowl in competition, you DO NOT use them?  Is this the same logic that says a wrist support is a "training device"?  Frankly, I use both to great effect.  It just irritates the crap out of me when people say they are "crutches".  Your reply please.

Cristofori,

Sorry, I believe your reading WAY to much into the Post. Please read it again.
Maybe, it was my bad. said use meant used....past tense. In context, reading the whole post, I said I am currently not using them anymore, doesn't mean I won't.

No mention of a crutch, not even inferring it, btw; ONLY PRAISE! and my personal experiences with the product.

thanks for allowing me to clarify

Did you guys make your thumb hole alot bigger? Ron sent me a piece of this stuff a few year ago and there was no way I could get my thumb out the ball with the carpet in the hole. The fit was way too tight. I wasn't about to have a ball that fit perfect drilled so I could it?

I was using so much tape to try to get a decent feel, that I didn't need to expand the thumb hole at all.

Does anyone have a picture of bowling ball with the magic carpet in it? I want to see what it looks like in the thumb hole. I brought one a while ago, but it didn't feel right, maybe I was putting it in wrong.
Thanks much
