    Here we go. It's my first attempt to grip LCW-style.

    I think that shows a 50% overlap, no? I tried it but the RKEP overgrip wouldn't reach the cone.

    I also didn't remove the original grip on the racket, maybe that caused it.

    My RKEP G08 lost tackiness quickly so I used it as an underwrap and put a G11 over the top.

    Nice job! Might consider doing that when my grip wears out.

    This is my VT LTD gripped in Karakal PU Super Grip. Question, is it ok to use the Karakal PU Super Grip as an overgrip to my original grip? I know it's meant to be a replacement grip but I just love the feel of it. It feels good in my hands.

    Thanks!

    If it's truly a replacement grip, it'll have a strong adhesive backing that will damage your original grip.

    ^ he won't be comfortable when he finds out that removing the replacement grip will tear pieces out of his original grip.

    I didn't remove the original plastic wrapping on the grip, so I guess it won't matter too much Anyway, I usually wrap the original grip with cling wrap before I apply overgrips for my other rackets, just to avoid moisture seeping in.

    Two layers of white RKEP G11 with half overlap, without the original grip, finished with Nitto tape. Love it.

    I'm such an equipment nerd.

    Can you teach me how to do that kind of grip? You didn't use a tape at the end to keep it in place. It looks neat.

    Pretty easy. Just start with the broad end at the handle butt. Then wrap with some tension until you end up with the tapered end at the cone. The tapered end is where you'll find an adhesive tape that can stick onto itself to finish.

    There's a video on YouTube somewhere.
