If you are a serious bowler then you know the irritation a few games can cause the skin on your fingers. Robby's offers the Thumb Saver to protect against blisters, calluses, and swelling while creating a smooth release.
Right Hand Only
Rubber tip is very large and doesn't fit good in my thumb hole, I had to get it drilled a little bigger so it would fit and not hurt my thumb. Otherwise a good product.
I was looking for something to help end the constant tape battle when my thumb starts to swell. Put one piece of grip tape in ball under the pad of my thumb. Bowled 3 games today in league and never had to adjust my thumb hole tape. The neoprene stops friction and stops swelling so I have a very consistent release. Great product for me!
I wore a size medium glove in the Army. I wear a cadet men foot joy golf glove. This glove fits perfectly. I can use it with my strike ball and my spare ball.
I use the thumb protector every time I bowl. I currently bowl in 4 leagues and practice up to ten games a week using the protector. Before I got the thumb protector, my thumb would swell and I would have a hard time getting my thumb out of the ball. After getting the protector, I found my release much cleaner, no matter how many games I bowl. The only reason I did not give it a five is that it is only good for about fifty games and then has to be replaced.
The thumb grip is annoying. The inside threading is uncomfortable and it doesn't slip into the thumbhole of my ball very well either! So, I had the grip removed and then resewed the thumb cover. Perfect! Wish they offered one of these sans the thumb grip. I think more people would buy them. Everyone who tried mind complained about the thumb grip too.

Do you have to re-size your thumb hole to accommodate the extra layer of material?2/25/2019 - By Digdug
You shouldn't have to resize the holes but if the thumb saver is preventing you from using your ball, then you could resize your thumb hole if necessary.2/26/2019 - By Bowling.Com Staff
