    I prefer the feel of a leather grip plus an overgrip and I've recently put a leather grip on a racket but I found that a grip 2 is a touch small, so I added an extra overgrip. I have to say the feel was brilliant.

    A combination of feel with a nice bit of cushioning and because of the firm leather grip it kept the bevel feel.

    Anyone else tried this?

    I've had to use that combination as well because of a too small of a grip. It felt pretty good and I could still feel the bevels. However, I prefer feeling the bevels better with just one overgrip. I do prefer leather grips as well.

    I prefer the feel with just one overgrip over leather as well, but a practicing partner uses 2 overgrips and seems very satisfied.
