due to my OCD personality, i like my overgrip to look like the original grip as much as i can. one thing that's always bugged me is the neatness when i grip near the cone because that's where i usually end the overgrip. when i backhand drive i like my thumb to feel the cone. anyway, i've always had problem with the way the tape sticks to the cone area and with the yonex supergrap, the sticky end of the grip actually has very very good adhesive that even when the grip rotates a bit, the "tail" is still stuck to the grip. and because i usually stretch the tape when i end the grip, the tape grips the tape even more than if you just stick it on top of the grip. the problem i run into when i grip the RKEP grip is that the G09 grip is not stretch so it makes it a bit stiffer and thicker on the handle. second, the surface of the grip is grippy yet very greasy so the adhesive tail of the grip doesn't stick to the grip all the time. being in California where the weather is dry, i can see the grips come undone while it's hung on my badminton rack. third, the RKEP tape that comes with the tape is not sticky enough that sometimes even the tape comes undone, but i see the same problem with the tape that comes with the yonex supergrap. so i solved the problem by stretching the tape so besides the adhesive part, the stretching helps the tape grip onto the overgrip. and just thinking about another way that could make "rubber" more sticky, i realized that i could just heat up the tape so that it stay stuck to the handle and grip so the overgrip won't come undone. what i did was that after i gripped my three rackets, all with G09 grips and two with the glossy tape and one with matte tape. i used a torch lighter and heated the tape area for about 1 second per face of the handle. afterward i realized that the tape sorta just fused together, but the night is young and it's supposed to be in the 40s tonight and so my room is going to be in the low 60s and very dry. i will know how it turned out by tomorrow morning before i go play. has anyone used this technique or something similar before? what is your experience? results?
