Default rubber or leather for thumbing pad on my Ambassador 7000

Hey Folks,
I would like to put a thumbing on my Abu 7000ic3 CT MAG HS.
Which material, based on experience, would be the best to use, rubber or leather?

Thanks

Hey Guys and Gals,
After watching a YouTube video, I decided to use a piece of rubber tubing as a thumb protector on my Abu Garcia 7000ci ct mag ,old style. It seems a bit awkward at first glance but will need to try casting first to really see if it's for me.
I'll let you folks know how it works as soon as I try using it.
To be continued!
