    Well, too bad there's no choice for 1-3 days. That's how long it usually lasts for me because I have hyperhydrosis (which is a skin disorder which causes me to sweat a lot on my palms)

    The Tournagrip tennis grip is meant to be better when wet (good for people who sweat a lot). Maybe you could try that on your badminton racket? I think it'd last longer than whatever you're using now.

    my overgrips are starting to last ever since i have a wrist band to reduce the perspiration. The only thing that does it not last is the stock grip that is beneath the overgrip everytime i replaces it.

    That's not necessarily true. Some people just sweat more or less than others. I sweat a lot (so annoying...) and the amount that I sweat from a good warm up is the amount that I've seen some people sweat during an entire practice.

    Anyways, I use only an overgrip (sometimes 2) for gripping my racket, and it usually lasts about a month before I need to change it. I play for 1-3 hours a day 6 days a week.

    I usually remove my grips after they're torn or when they are dirty from playing.

    4.Longer than 2 Months.

    I selected the wrong option (3)..!
