    Karakal PU super grip last about 3 months (3 hrs a week).

    is the best for me after having used all types of yonex, prince, etc. But the black color ones difficult to find cos too popular and the shop bring in boxes with assorted colors. Often left GREEN, YELLOW, BLUE.

    Guys Yonex for racket is ok but not grip or grap, super or not. IMHO.

    1-3 weeks, 6 hours of club training each week. During weeks with competition it easily adds upp to 10 hours of playing i guess.

    But i tend to wear the grips out pretty fast compared to other ppl around me.

    My towel grips only last me up to two weeks. I now wrap the bottom part of the towel grip with yonex supergrap.. it looks really weird, but I find it comfortable.

    Using Wilson Tournament Overgrip as there aren't any badminton supply shop around and I don't want to pay for shipping. Play about 15hrs a week and the grip will last for about a month before the white grip turns black.

    I use towel grip mostly, only generic, cheap ones, and they last 3-4 week at best. Perweek, i usually play around 12-15 hrs, but it's divided beetween 2 rackets atleast, so it's about 18-28 hrs lifetime for those cheapo towel grips i used -well, since they're only around 0.15 US$ per piece, i must say it wouldn't hurt my pocket too much changing them more often.

    i use Gosen PU super grip...
    it feels really nice, but only last for 2 months.
    since i have sweaty hand, some black dots grow on it, and the adhesive didn't hold well after 2 months

    The original grip that came on my Prince racket was useless, and had to be replaced after a couple of weeks (playing 15-20 hrs/week at that time).

    Apart from that, I don't think I've ever actually bothered changing grips - my Aerogear 800HT from c.2002, still has the original grip (didn't get another racket for 4 years, and I still use it sometimes)

    Maybe it's something to do with how you hold the racket? I kind of pivot it on my thumb mostly, and that's the only part that's really worn.

    Similar situation here with the PU supergrip, about 2-3 weeks, 12 hours a week.

    Karakal Pu Super grip - the almighty grip as some people call it.

    2-3 months for me.
