    Do you not overlap the leather grip when you wrap it?

    im pretty sure by looking at my POG,
    that the leather is not overlaped.
    Instead its gripped next to the last piece, sort of like adjoining it

    Yes, it is, at least with the Gamma grip I had a while back. It's just like wrapping any other grip, except that you can't stretch it.

    Yes, you are supposed to overlap. Some companies overlap significanlty while other don't. I like my grip to feel solid so I overalp more than stock. There should be some indication on the grip about how much they recommend you overlap - look at the color differences.

    actually it is overlapped...but by a really small amount (1mm or so)...the grip overall should be flat w/ slight dips (lack of a better word) on the overlaps
