    nah, I'm kidding, I do use it though...
    Currently using wilson Pro: lasts 2 weeks at most (rotating between two rackets)

    sry if ask before, why people grip their racket all the way to shaft? personal reference or there is reason behind it

    Well, not only that...doubles players usually do this because they grip high up the handle for finesse shots at the net. I find that it helps me control my backhand serves better, too.

    like some people here, once it loses tackiness then it time to wear new clothes (which is pretty damn often!!)

    I've been using Synthetic grip for a while now.. switch from towel to rubber. I tends to change it more often. Maybe once every 1 to 2 weeks. I'm using yonex grip.

    3 to 4 weeks for me.
    i used to use karakal's pu grip and have recently switched to victor's rubber grip because of its tackiness.
