    Yonex AC102EX yellow. He reverse-gripped, so that you don't need to apply the Yonex tape over the grip-end (near the cone area).
    You should be able to see other threads about this in BC forum.
    You can watch this video on how to do it:

    It's a really good and effective way of gripping your rackets

    The quickest and looks neatest too, for me. Only downside is its almost impossible not to have a small crease/ wrinkle at the bottom of the grip, but who actually holds it down there anyway. Exactly.

    Haha...

    I do.

    Yeah, I'm just kinda power-deficient, so I've adapted by holding it further down

    Originally I applied overgrip a to the wood although I found that they wear away to fast, even though I don't grip it that hard .. No I am using a cushion and they last longer and I prefer the feeling.

    I would also like to know if LCW applied the grip to the wood or does he have original grip/replacement grip under the overgrip?

    I'm quite a beginner and I don't really understand the video. Reverse grip as in he starts from the bottom, whereas normally you'd start from the top, or reverse grip as in he wraps it upside down, where the sticky part is underneath but he wraps the non-sticky part underneath? But it looks like there isn't any sticky-ness underneath except at the end of the grip. I'm kind of confused, anyone mind explaining it to me?

    Dato LCW wrapped's his racket in a way that, he starts from the bottom with the end part ( the square end of the over grip ) and ends his wrapped at the cone with the triangle part ( the part with the adhesive part )...
