When I had my thumb pitch looked at by my driller, I asked him what the current pitch was. He told me it was something reverse( I don't remember exact number). I told him I wanted to try some more forward pitch in the thumb to free up my armswing. He looked at my thumb and told me I could goto 1/2" forward. I love it now and it seems to have improved my grip a bunch. The forward pitch in your thumb is dependent on your specific thumb so, I would have a trusted driller look at your thumb and suggest a pitch.

I was reading a website or in an BTM article, don't remember which, and it suggested that most people can goto 1/2" forward with a little bit of coaching. I think it was Ron Clifton but, I'm not sure.
