    Hi all,

    I have just put some Karkal over-grip on my TIW5000. The first time I have done it.
    The finish is okay but far from perfect. I was wondering if anyone has any tips on how to get a better finish, other than practive and experience. I am looking especially at the top the the grip when coming to the end of the wrap and the finishing tape.

    Do you make an angled cut into the tape when getting to the end, how long, how steep an angle. Share your tips and secrets :)

    i believe that the distance between the rolls should be constant throughout

    angle of the cut depends on the angle of your wrap job (if you want the perfect wrap).
    However, you don't really need a perfect cut since you can cover up any errors with the tape at the end.
