Hurt. I've got a KB tour with a Yonex Supergrap over it, and it's giving me blisters :(. I also tried out my older Head LM which I recently put a Gamma Hi-Tech replacement grip on, and that felt nice and squishy.

Just my 2 cents.

i have a wilson k tour and it comes with original leather grip...I just want to know whether I should leave it like that or put a Wilson Pro OG over it?

i guess its something that you have to experiment with

like does it feel you need more tack or something like that

Usually i put a OG on leather grips because it doesnt have enough tack for me

I'd tear strip that leather grip completely, and put on a replacement grip. Leather grips by themselves feel awful (very stiff and not tacky) in my opinion, and even with an overgrip, it doesn't feel cushiony enough for me, so it's giving me blisters.

I have a Yonex SuperGrap (overgrip) on my KB Tour (with leather), and it just feels too hard. The SuperGrap gives a great tacky feel, though. I'm thinking of stripping the leather and putting on a Gamma Hi-Tech replacement grip, and then overgripping that, since it's way more comfortable and cushiony.

i used to play supergrap, but now i play just leather. i havent looked back and i dont plan to either. its all personal preference, if u are willing to build up calluses playing with leather is really sweet

Damn, you guys like that leather! I can't stand it, it's too hard on my itty bitty hands.

IMO, I don't like the leather, but love the weight

Wht are the pro's and con's for using leather aside from personal perference? I'm all bout the Pro Overgrip on top of my leather grip here...

Where can I buy the Wilson tape that goes on top of the overgrip? I bought the Wilson Pro Overgrip 3-pack and for some reason it doesn't come with any tape. Also, does Sports Authority install Overgrip too?

Sounds like you bought the Wilson Pro's that are rolled up. If that is the case once you open them up and unroll one a little bit the Wison tape will be rolled up in the over grip. If not just use some electrical tape. It holds better anyways.
