For years, I have used cork insert in the thumb hole. It worked well

Subject: Plastic Thumb Insert (not cork)
for me, until somehow, my thumb got cut. Am not sure how it happened,
but there it was. The cut would heal, but after a few games, the same
old cut would open up.
When I went to Reno in 2004, I picked up a bunch of plastic inserts to
replace the cork. This works well, but I have since run out. These
inserts are made of pliable plastic (like a laminate) but the surface
was grippy (if there is such a word), not sticky. It gives me total
control of the ball without messing up my thumb.
I tried most pro-shops where I live (Vancouver, British Columbia,
Canada) but have not been able to find it. Does anybody know who
makes and distributes these? An what are they called?
