Anybody known or heard of stick attachments being made with a harness on the end?

I would really be interested in something like this.

I personally like the sharp gimbals as they prevent slippage. But if you wanna try something different you could go with a set of these gimbals.

As stated yes I tend to push my thumbs into the gimbals but not out of nervousness. I don't have as much flex in my thumbs I have had both thumbs jammed back. The skid protectors look cool haven't thought of that. What was stuck in mind was something on top of the points but as that would "extent" the sticks may not be affective. Actually was thinking of removing the top half of the stick and modifying something shorter. The points are not unbearable but one in the middle as to even out the coverage might would be nice. I thought of some rtv silicone to fill in some of the depth and restrict how far the points aply pressure. I know this sounds extreme but cramping hands are annoying trying to fly as I may fly all day sometimes. Also, the pics were nice thanks.

There is no such thing as up, it's all out...

I don't thumb but I saw this at the field and the guy thought it worked for him, so maybe might be worth trying. He made a small disk (plastic) about the same diameter as you would get when putting the rubber skids on the stick and then he had, it looked like, 100 or 80 grit sandpaper glued on top. He said his thumb won't slip on the sandpaper even with light pressure. just passing this along.
