hey guys. im thinking of double wrapping my overgrip because my theory is that it will increase feel and lessen vibration. do you think this is true?

Lessen vibration, yes. Increase feel, I'd say no. First off, the feel of the bevels will be diminished, and some of the good feel of the racquet seems like it would be filtered out as well. Just my thinking...but is this ONLY two overgrips or two overgrips on top of the replacement grip?

I don't think it'll feel that good, as you won't be able to find the bevels as easily, but, if you like it, fine.

depends on how thick each overgrip is. i personally don't like it because it feels mushy and round. it might decrease vibrations just a little, but will not add feel. try it and see for yourself.

Patently false! Any method that lessens vibrations also decreases the "feel" of the racquet. Overgrips act as dampeners too especially when multiple layers are used.

Less feel. Easy solution, try it and see if you like it.

for me, i LOVE putting two overgrips over a replacement grip.
that's what i do, and i'm loving the feel.
people say the feels are gone, but i like this feel better
