Hey Moose... re-thumbsize.
Your thumb will change almost every day.
1. what did you do today? work with your hands?
2. what did you eat yesterday? anything with salt? drink a lot of fluids?
3. Its really cold out and conversely, hot out.
4. humidity will not change your thumb size as much as the way your thumb comes out, it can get a little sticky at times.

The day that I don't have to add or remove tape from my ball is an unusual one.
On the days that I have to add tape, around the middle of the 2nd game, the tape has to come out.

Everyone is different. Some people never notice, they just squeeze the ball a little more to make up for the difference. Some can tell how many pieces of tape are in the ball by feel.

So the rule of the thumb is add tape when you feel the urge to squeeze the ball so you don't drop it.
When the ball starts to hang and you are tugging the ball towards the inside, take some tape out.
To me, it's not a ball unless it has tape in it.
