I stopped thinking about this and kept practicing. Those gadgets are nice but you'll never master the skill of tamping. Just give it some time and you'll learn to tamp the right way and can make coffee at someone else too instead of being dependent on a gizmo for making coffee. Tamping isn't rocket science.
