Didnt realize you needed one, I have never used one. If you are talking about the basic card spin on the thumb, without any gimmicks. Then you shouldnt need a TT.
Same for the LDS, a TT isnt needed.

it isn't needed, but with the proper one, you can get a lot more distance, and it will spin a lot faster as it comes off

Thats not 100% true :roll:
Not that I have seen. I get great control and distance without one. Just PRACTICE. With proper method and control you dont need a tt. Just means one more thing to carry and wear. :?

If anything use a glove tip or rubber finger. :?

It's not really a TT in the magical sense. It's one of those rubber things bank tellers and other people who handle paper money a lot use to facilitate counting bills. They function like TTs in that they fit over your thumb, but they are made of thinner, more flexible rubber; some are textured. Try office supply stores, or just go to a bank and ask the tellers where they get them.

I've heard it recommended that you wear one of these when learning to do distance spinning but that, eventually, it shouldn't be necessary -- though it would give you consistency and guaranteed grip. If it does give you more distance, etc., I suppose there's no reason not to wear one, since in stage manipulation work it likely wouldn't be seen anyway.

I have tried 5 different kinds of rubber tips for this, and I still get the best distance with my own thumb (over 35 feet straight up last we measured- 2006). I also get better control with my thumb.
All it takes is work.

Are you talking about throwing cards like "Ricky Jay" for distance? If so I have never used anything to assist in the throw. Kind of like thorwing a frisbee or throwing stars.
