    Has anyone gripped this way? If so, which grip did u use? What bout the overlap, is it 1/2 or 1/3 or less?
    This is possible but requires a lot of stretching I have gripped it this way before but now I grip it to the yonex logo on the cone.

    G09 in that pic, but find G10 much better now.

    One little hint, when finishing with the tapered sticky end near the cone.

    Make sure to cut off those few mm at the end that doesn't have adhesive.

    Then when applying those last few inches, prestretch the overgrip around the cone and use less tension before sticking it on . This will prevent the adhesive on the tapered end from coming off or sliding off over time.

    Good tip with cutting the end where it's not sticky. I find that the flap usually starts to lift lol...

    You're neither the first nor only one.
    This type of wrapping probably affects the BP a fair degree I'd imagine. Though luckily last I checked (with G09 Elites) the white grip is the lightest.

    Main issue I had with the G09 besides that they were a bit too tacky for me (I believe the new G10 will be more ideal for me), is that they weighed a little too much in comparison to the Yonex equivalent. Around double the weight on the racket, even more if using the colour red, which seems to be the heaviest.

    Does anyone know if the newer RKEP grips are any lighter than the older RKEP G09 Elites?

    ^ G10 grips are about 0.3g heavier than G09. And they're even more tacky...

    Which would you say is closest to Super Grap? Eg, slightly less tacky or gummy but still fairly sticky overall.

    In terms of soft feel and tackiness, G10 is softer closest if not like Supergrap... but only after about 15 hours of use.

    wait what?! i thought G10 is thinner than G09, how could G10 be heavier than G09? i'm confused. i didn't weight them but i just figured the thicker one has more material so it's heavier?
