  I love the stuff. Did not have to make thumb hole bigger. However, the
more I bowl and practice the more my thumbhole shrinks in size. It is very
snug now with forward pitch. Relax that thumb and you will be surprised
how snug and comfy the thumbhole becomes over time.

Magic Carpet + snug thumb hole + no grip pressure = better bowling.

I just placed an order for my second batch of carpet.  I love the stuff..always had a problem of oval thumb and circular hole (don't have milling machine).  Previously I would drill my thumb a size bigger and then build up white tape in the front and black in the back (about 3 whites and 6 blacks) to make an oval.  Now, I drill the hole 1 size larger, slide a piece of carpet in the back and maybe one piece of white in the front and its perfect.  I always have had trouble with my thumb swelling (most noticible with my spare ball becasue mid-way through the night it would start hanging, causing me to pull spare shots).. not any longer.. my spare conversion has increased dramatically.. really helps with a clean/consistant release.  Something that everyone can appreciate.  Really a great product.

I just put some magic carpet in the wifes equipment for the first time, she's only rolled about 9 games with it so far but absolutely loves it.  Her thumb was a bit sore after the first set last week but a little liquid patch fixed that up, she didn't have any problems today at all.
