    Does anyone know where to get that rubber thing that you put at the top of your grip (mine broke)? I think it's used to hide the tape.

    I've always just used the finishing tape, and don't think it looks bad at all. but if you really want to cover it up with a "black rubber band," you could probably cut slices from a bicycle tire innertube that would do the trick.

    I don't even bother with tape anymore, just use the rubber to keep the top of the grip on. Just more convenient, and I like my overgrips thin, so I wrap the excess all at the top to build up the top (two hander, like a thicker grip on the top) and put the rubber over it.

    I've never had a overgrip fall off, so it does work.
