    Ah oui, I forgot you were the #1 LCW groupie :D. Why ask Ants since it's not 100% exactly the same as LCW. Obviously you have watched it over and over again the first time so you should remember already by now. Best if you go to Paris and ask LCW to put grip on your racquet :cool:.

    :D As a matter of fact I did just that last evening :p. Editing now but I don't know if I will put it up since it's too ridiculous for words really. Might as well ask Ants how to put on a dress like Reiko (hmmm :rolleyes:)
    Or if you were to referring to 100%, well we should videotape LCW ;)

    The video would be very useful for the bottom part

    The end result:
    [​IMG]
    (Just a placeholder to illustrate the general idea; Up untill Ants posts a new version ;). A lot easier to do with a brand new overgrip. For the bulge I used two strips of leftover cut in half across the length replacement grip which I happened to have lying around; easy to stick on. Also I used electric tape to cover the wood instead of athletic tape)

    very nice :) agree seeing the video I started doing my grips like ants showed. Reletivly easy to do, I used leftover over grip, wrapped around twice, to creat a small bulge at the bottom. Then I wrapped with a 1/2 overlap (had to do this as it's quite small grip size) but no athletic tape for me.:)

    Yeah 50% overlap is what I always use unless it's a G3 (click pic for video btw if you guys hadn't discovered ;))

    If I understand correctly, the athletic tape is adhesive and is absorbing (to avoid damaging the wood).
    Is that correct?

    That one should be adhesive and "non-poreux" so the sweat shouldn't get to the wood directly

    I have another question, I apologize but I take your knowledge :D:

    I saw in the video Ants came a overgrip of a box.
    I would like to know where I could buy overgrip in identical boxes because I find it practice to go in the tournament.

    I could also ask LCW :)

    Not because it's my last question, I PROMISE.
    In addition, I already asked this question but nobody answered me.

    For those who want to help me, this is the issue of reply 114.

    you can only buy the AC102 in those boxes in asia, in Europe you can only get the AC102 in the normal packaging. It makes no difference really. But if you really want it, you can maybe ask an Malaysian BCet to bring it over.:) if they are going to the WC.

    Yes, anyway, I spend commendams Asia occasionally.
    In addition, the AC 103 does not lie in France, I am forced to buy in Asia as well as my string.
    So it does not bother me to buy another site (I usually order a Chinese site but I may well order a Japanese site or Malaysia for exemple).
