they carried other color but not Wilson X-Tra Tack.
maybe shop cross the border to Malaysia or Indonesia to find Grey and Yellow one.

I don't know why many pro use thin overgrip?? feels not quite good in my hand.

I never just use one single overgrip under the handle. At the least, I have one overgrip under it to provide cushioning (meaning two overgrips on the handle). I mix and match to get my desired thickness, cushioning and tackiness.
Currently, the best set-up I have encountered is the SOTX D-600 with a 3-3/8" grip with Yellow Wilson X-Tra Tack overgrip to make it a 3-5/8" grip. My process:
1) Remove the original, very cushioning, leather SOTX grip.
2) Smooth down the handle edges a little with the dull side of a pair of scissors.
3) Replace the original SOTX grip.
4) Tape the very edge of the SOTX grip with finishing tape. This is to be able to remove the overgrip easily with out damaging the SOTX grip.
5) Apply the Wilson X-Tra Tack overgrip. I overlap in the middle to create an essentially smooth surface.

Based on that, I modify accordingly.
Usually with a Yonex G4, I just need to add one overgrip onto the existing grip.
If it's a Yonex G3, I would remove original overgrip and use two overgrips.
If it's a Yonex G5, I would remove the original grip and add a thicker replacement grip such as the Karakal PU and then another overgrip.
In a perfect world, I would have the cushioning feel of the Karakal PU under a Wilson X-Tra Tack Gray or Yellow at 3-3/4" in circumference.

Sure you can but I would add some protective tape over the original grip otherwise you will damage the original grip when it comes time to remove the KPU (Karakal PU) grip.
