Most players use overgrips as they are cheaper and easier to replace then normal grips. Saves time and money.
the man is right over here.

replacement grips / main grips have adhesive on the whole tape. whereas overgrips only have a small adhesive at the tapered end. not too sure if you can spot it if they are in a seal packaging. nevertheless, overgrips are generally way much cheaper than replacement grip.

there are guys who hit with a single overgrip and no main grip under it (or just 2 overgrips). all about preference.

i play with a tw leather grip as base with a single overgrip. i use white overgrips so they can remind me to change them when they give me the "dirty look" lol
