I am very picky about getting out of the thumb well and to those who use a real snug thumb drill, great job. I am not one of them. I am also not one who likes tape. Never have. Works great for LOTS of people but not for me.
When Steffi Ward and some others (including the originator - Ron Clifford) of the old Bowl4Fun chat kept talking about Ron's Magic Carpet I talked with him and he sent me a couple. LOVED THEM. Nice and snug but no problems with hanging up in the ball as my thumb swells and not too loose when I start that I tend to squeeze.
Prior to the carpets I had actually resorted to drilling vent holes in the thumb to help offset the vacuum problems I was having. It worked OK, but the carpet lets the air exchange places and keep a snug fit as well.
While it may LOOK like just one half of velcro, it actually isn't. That was my first impression too though :-)
