Yeah athletic tape, even better. Ive never tried it to be honest, I just thought it might work as the same process but the other way around. But I guess layers of athletic tape to keep the bevel feel would be better.
I expect the thing with going with a thicker grip, no matter what method you use, you are going to lose some bevel feel.
