    My generic towel lasts for around 2-3 weeks per racket

    playing:

    Sun => 2 hours
    Mon => 3 hours
    Wed => 3 hours

    coaching:

    Sat => 2 hours
    Thur => 3 hours

    total of 13 hours per week, so around 39 hours give or take

    Play about 15+ hrs per week. Using Yonex A440, flip once after the 1st side got worn out to save a bit $$$.

    Usually need to change for a new one after 2 weeks.

    A suggestion - perhaps a more accurate poll would be to estmate how long a grip lasts in terms of number playing hours....

    For example - one who plays 5 sessions a week is going to wear out his grips a lot faster than one who plays 4 times a month....
