    Directly on the wood ?

    That's not a good method for me as I play doubles :p

    Yes directly onto the wood.:)

    It's not really good for doubles, but for singles it is good.:)

    Isn't the point of the method to end up with the sticky part on top? ;) If you're gonna cut it off, might as well do it the regular way [​IMG]
    (saves you a few more inches as well by skipping the starting method :p)

    Well I like the thickness at the bottom, it's all personal preference, what works for me, might not work for you. I can make two grips out of one, with this. :)

    Don't push it ! :p lol, grip is grip at the end of the day, maybe it should be PSH rules! Seeing a I have a SW35, or PG rules seeing as I own a pair of SHB91s :p

    What grip size do you use for your LD-LCW grip ?
    Dunno how it was for Demolidor, but with my YY G4 I even can't put the grip untill the high of the cone..with a 1/2 overlap !!

    I used Gosen grip, pretty sure it's longer than AC402 (this Apacs is about G4 as well) ... normally I can go up much further (didn't stretch it so much at the end this time). Think I continued 50% overlap untill the end, normally when I reach the cone I no longer do 50%. Maybe you can try that if you also did 50% all the way ...

    You can create the thick bottom any method, still no point wrapping it this way if you're not going to use the sticky end but I guess it's easy to use when you use your left-over bit without a sticky part at all :cool:.

    The overgrip is applied straight on wood with electrical tape or have to add replacement grip first ?

    Here's my attempt. No athletic tape or excess grip underneath, but 50% overlaps to double the grip thickness. Just about perfect for me on a G4 sized grip. I had it done with excess grip at the bottom too, and liked it even more. Better feedback of the racket handle as I tend to grip the racket towards the bottom.
    Now the balance point on the Arcsaber 10 is around 320mm and 330mm on an Armortec 500… :confused:

    first attempt :D

    it seems to be thicker on 1 side of the bottom but still it feels good..just by holding it and swinging it around

    off topic: it's my first time using Victor Nanotec replacement grip. the glue at the bottom seems to be less sticky compared to Karakal PU grips

    Same question, one more time since I didn't get any reply on this matter. Sorry. The overgrip is applied straight on wood with electrical tape or do I need to put on a replacement grip first ? Does LCW apply a replacement grip before adding the overgrip ?
