Finishing tape I never use. My grips are tapered on each end. I used to double over at the butt but builds up the butt too much for me (some love it) and if it’s not tight enough the grip can unravel from the butt. No I use the tacky end at but and wrap to top of handle. I don’t use tape supplied with grip but I use a grip band to hold the top. My guess it you could use self fusing silicone tape at the top to hold grip too.

I wrap the same way except I don’t fold the over grip on the buttcap. Very clean, no scissors needed.

I watched this video too. I will just do the traditional way where the sticky end of the overgrip(Wilson pro/yonex supergrap) starts at the buttcap so it doesn't unravel during match play. For shorter handles, even if you go with the video's idea, you may have to trim the excess with scissors, otherwise too much overlap may cause the grip size to be big. Just my $.02

I’ve never had the OG unravel ever and I don’t use the sticky side.

For short handles you don’t have to trim or use a lot of overlap. you just wrap all the way up to the start of the throat.

I have never had an over grip “unravel”, but I can say, that if I wrapped my Tournagrip XL twice around the buttcap, it only makes it 3/4 of the way up the handle.
