Overgrip instead of replacement grip?


I wanted to know if I could remove my replacement grip and use an overgrip instead, being that I like how the small grip feels and I like that specific overgrip. Can this be done?

it can be done. i wouldnt really advise it though, as you'll take a large chunk of the grips shock absorption away. if you feel you must do it, i would probably use 2 overgrips, which would still be thinner than a replacement grip

I wouldn't recommend this. I did it before Very uncomfortable, the vibration's are crazy with just overgrip.
