Happy thumbs use "The Magic Carpet"

Invented by Ron Clifton the writer of Ron C's bowling tips 

If You Have Experienced the following:

  • Poor release 
  • Large knots on the back of the thumb
  • Ball hanging on your thumb.
  • Slow thumb exit
  • Invested so much money in tape that you could have easily bought the tape company by now.

Even if you have never experienced these issues, "Ron C's Magic Carpet" is a great tool for bowlers who want the perfect thumb release.  Forget the rest of the bowling aids, this one you can install yourself and it requires no special tools.  This product is so good that all of our testers give it a 5star.gif (1031 bytes) review! 

What it is and why does it work?

Who is RonC?

ronc3.jpg (23096 bytes)Ron Clifton is a 30 plus year veteran to the sport of 10-Pin Bowling.  He resides in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.  He is a coach to many of the most successful  PBA regional players in the southern region and a co-partner of Winston-Salem's newest and greatest 24-lane center "Creekside Lanes".  He writes coaching articles for, "The Bowling News" (a bowling news paper that the banner claims to reach 250,000 league bowlers on the east coast) and a new international publication "7-10 Split"  When approached by numerous bowlers about a common issue, and his own struggles with a clean consistent release. He developed Ron C's Magic Carpet. He then ask bowlers from around the world to test the effectiveness of the Magic Carpet. Over 80% of them reported  a cleaner more consistent release and more importantly higher scores. Some setting state and national records in the process.  The product became so popular that he was urged to market it at an affordable price around the world.

Installation Instructions

Ron C's Magic Carpet is equivalent to approximately 3-4 pieces of white textured tape.  The thumb hole may need to be sized accordingly if your thumbhole is snug to begin with.

     Stick your thumb and fingers in the ball and see where the knuckle of your thumb touches the back of the thumb hole. That is where you want to install the Magic Carpet. Remove the backing from the Magic Carpet and place it in the back of the thumb hole where your knuckle made contact. Place it about ľ inch below the top if the thumb hole. When you are sure you
have the Magic Carpet in the right position press firmly to activate the strong glue. When it is time to replace your Magic carpet it should come out without leaving a glue mess behind.
     You may add bowler 's tape to the front of the hole as needed to snug it up. If you prefer you may add the tape under the Magic Carpet. The Magic Carpet has a 3  to 5 game break in period and may redden the thumb a little during this time. After the break in period the redness will go away unless the thumb hole is way too tight or you knuckle the ball. 
People with small thumb holes may need to trim the width with scissors.
The thumbhole may appear to be tight, but many people have noted that the ball may actually fall off their hand early.  Always test the ball by rolling it slowly from the foul line the first time to prevent any mishaps.  


Tested on bowlers with varying styles and skill levels, this product is proven!  Read what a few of our testers had to say about this fine product:

"I like to use black tape in the back of my thumb hole (1 piece on top of a white piece), so when I talked to Ron about his invention called the "Magic  Carpet", I was anxious to try it. I also use about 4-6 pieces of white tape in the front of the thumb hole. When I received the carpets to try I immediately removed the tape from the back of the hole and inserted one of them into each of my two favorite balls. I had roughed up the surface before I placed them in because it was my understanding that it would take 5 to 6 games for them to wear in and that in the mean time my thumb may get a little red. So it did for the first night I used them but very minimal. I needed to remove 3 pieces of tape from the front of the hole after I placed the carpets in but soon found out that I could add one of the pieces back in. I was amazed at how tight my thumb felt and it felt soft behind my thumb but what was more amazing to me was that my thumb came out of the ball like I had no tape in it at all. What I mean is that I had the cleanest release that I have ever experienced in my 25 years of bowling. I have also noticed little to no swelling of my thumb while bowling. My second week of bowling with the Magic Carpets proved to me what an awesome product Ron has developed. In my third game of league play I bowled my third perfect 300 game of my career. My first and second 300's where bowled 6 years ago along with an 815 series and I was wondering when I would be blessed by the bowling gods to repeat that feat. I consider myself an accomplished bowler that has won numerous leagues and tournaments including my associations all events scratch title in 1997. I give a lot of the credit for my recent success to The Magic Carpets. In just one week with them I have thrown a perfect game. Maybe its coincidence but I think not. Thank you Ron for supplying me with the tools that I needed for my recent success and encourage all bowlers to give these carpets a test for themselves. Good luck and great bowling."

A note from Ron: Carlo now has two more Magic Carpet 300s !!!!!!

This was a letter sent to me in November 2001

 Dear Ron
A friend of mine started me on the use of Ron C's Magic Carpet last year and now I want to order some for myself and to pay him back.
It's the best item I've ever used. I've been bowling for over 40 years. I am now 72 and still bowling like a "champ" with the help of your Magic Carpet. Thanks a lot for your help.

     Ron, speaking from first hand experience, they are great. After getting my sample and putting it in my ball, I have never had a better fit. Showed it to several friends and as a result, you are getting an order from me. While some said that they noted some redness on the back of the thumb, I think their hole was fairly snug to begin with and then the carpet made the fit too snug. If done correctly, it is the best thing since sliced bread. If my testimony to your product increases your sales, I will expect a commission check in the mail.  Sawbones

     This product is magic. I put  one in a somewhat old ball to check it out. What I found was, the greatest feeling thumbhole I have ever had. I tried to throw another ball I have without it and I couldn't. I had to put a piece in every ball I have. All I have got to say is you have got to try this. This is a great idea, and I am going to start selling them in my pro shop. Great job on a great product. Ron, you are the man.
