    sorry if its been answered before.

    im finding the handles too big when i put even the thinnest overgrip.

    can i remove the stock grip and use an overgrip?

    or do i have to use a replacement grip?

    You can absolutely use a replacement grip on the wood. Usually 50% overlap, which should result in about same thickness as a factory grip.

    You can use an overgrip directly on the wooden handle but it might feel to hard if you're used to having grip + overgrip. I would recommend using cushion wrap on the wood + overgrip to get more cushioning.

    I've done this on a couple of rackets. You'll want to cover the wood with a layer of electric tape before the overgrip to stop any sweat/moisture getting to the wood.
