Candice does not bowl. But we had so much fun acting like she knew what she was talking about.


Wow! I was going to recommend people see her for fitting/lessons smile

When you get your pitches the way you want, take the tape out of the hole, put a latex glove on your thumb, put your thumb in the properly pitched thumb sleeve and keep your thumb pressed to the front of the hole and make the mold around it, this will keep the pitches the way you have them. If the molding compound gets between the front of your thumb and the sleeve then it will alter your pitch away from where you want it.

One other thing to take into consideration is you might have to back off on the forward pitch once you have a hole that is perfectly molded to your thumb. You will have to try it and see for yourself.
