If so how soon did that redness go away?
I have wanted to try this product but hoped someone from here would be the test pilot, as I am fond of the skin on my own thumb and don't wish to part with any of it.

A couple of years ago, I started coming out of my ball in such a way that I kept tearing the skin on the back of my thumb. Started using the Perfect Patch on the back of my thumb and that solved the problem.
Unfortunately, it seems that Ebonite may have phased out the Perfect Patch. I've had to order it from on-line stores.
I have tried the other newer finger tape, but it doesn't hold up as well. Despite the claims that it is sweat proof, I seem to be able to sweat it right off pretty quickly.
I use the Magic Carpet with my thumb slugs and feel like I am getting a better release. Gives me a nice snug feeling with some cush.
