Anyone use a double-overlap grip for full swings?

I've been studying some videos of my swing and noticed that using a double-overlap grip promotes more level shoulders. It also seems to allow for a more "swingy" (as opposed to hit) swing with a more free release. I can feel the weight of the clubhead better because there are fewer fingers of the right hand on the club.
So anyone use this grip?
I've tried it. I mean, unless you're able to uncock your left wrist and rotate your left forearm on plane on a consistent basis, and get that downward strike perfectly, it's really a hard grip to use. Yes it's only one finger but it's hard (for me) to get control.

Based on my personal experience and a little bit thinking, the double interlock grip really helps me to lock both hands together, but my hands movement got restricted more which I don't like. Now I return the "single" interlock grip.
I don't think the double up grips can hinge more freely. For me, it's the strong grip to allow me hinging easily.

I think the type of grip you use needs to be well suited to the type of swing you employ. The double overlap grip IMHO, has a lot of merit for a left side controlled golf swing (pulling/swinging action). If you have a left side controlled swing that has the right hand take over too much (causing occasional shut faced pulls and hooks), this could be a good grip to try out.
