    i change my grip (yonex AC-102) every time my string snaps (2-3 months). There is still grip but not as much when the grip is new. The grip turns from white to grey due to the sweet. Do you think i should change more often?

    Wow! I don't know anyone who changes grips as often as you guys. Even my coach doesn't change his grips for a couple months.

    Because of distance I can only play about 5 hrs per week. I've always used a Wilson overgrip (most recently Micro Comfort) and these have lasted me for at least 6 months.

    My winex towel grip last me three to four weeks. But, in fact, after 3-4 hours, it's already not excellent. If I could, I'd change my grip every week.

    depends on the color of the grip and how often I'm playing.

    on average I play twice a week, sometimes more. hence with a darker color grip, the color change isn't as bad. but if it's a lighter color eg. white or yellow, then need to change more frequent. the wear on the grip also varies depending on weather, playing style (eg. more attacking, or defensive) as more sweat wears the grip out quicker. also, because my fingers/grip constantly changes during the game, it takes longer for one area of the grip to wear (lol..... can't say the same thing for my shoes though ..... always wears in the same area, no matter what. 'foot draging' syndrome I think)

    3-4weeks for me, 3 times a week. but i only change the overgrip using toalson ultragrip, white color. usually with thin type rubber grip, white would be more tacky as it use less or no coloring.
