Grip Test as illustrated by Don Johnson
This is something illustrated by Don Johnson on his first video "A Pro's Guide to Better Bowling Volume 1, it is a "test" to see if the thumb-hole is too loose or too snug. http://www.bowlingbookstore.com/products/94
Requirements: the ball, some bowlers tape, a tool to add or remove tape. Caveat: the objective of this test is for the ball to drop off the thumb following an action an assistant will perform. A bowler could do this solo. The bowler can be standing up or kneeling down so the ball does not fall far!
Before performing the test, the bowler should check the ball to see if the ball is obviously too tight or too loose. Adjust the fit if needed.
Once the bowler thinks it fits well, the bowler should insert their fingers and thumb in the ball as per norm.
Next, the bowler should hold the ball down by their bowling side in a collapsed wrist position. Definition: Collapsed wrist in this context is like you would position palm to push yourself away from the table or on the floor to do pushups. The bowlers palm should be facing towards the floor and the ball should stay on because you've already checked to see if it was too loose. If it does slip off, add tape. If it stays on, the assistant should position their hand on the back of the bowlers bowling hand (the flip side of the palm). Now press down and straighten out the bowlers wrist. If the ball stays on, the thumb is too tight ( adjust the thumb hole tape ) If the ball easily drops off, the fit is good, this is what we are looking for.
