    I like my grip thinner as well. Right now, I use Black Knight tuf overgrip just on the wood and i haven't experienced any pain playing regularly (6 days a week) or even at tournaments. I find it thick enough but thin enough. The thing about this grip is that there is foam under, so if you don't like the contoured grips, don't use it. The thickness is good for me. i wrap it overlapping twice with no spaces.

    You could try wrapping an overgrip thicker just on the wood. (overlapping more of it)

    Using 2 overgrips may work as well. I have not tried this but i will in the near future. I fanyone does, let me know how it works?

    I tried playing with just a super grap on the bare racket and after 2 hours of play there was a huge blood blister in the web of my hand.

    You will. For me, I feel that an overgrip should only be applied on to a bare wood handle if followed by another, or a replacement grip !!!! It's just too thin on its own.

    But, a (bigger) replacement grip can be used either :

    1. On top of an overgrip.

    2. On bare wood.

    3. Over clingfilm, tape of some kind etc.

    I just feel that the replacement grip (i.e. Karakal Super PU) should be the LAST layer added to your racket. It's just my personal point of view.
