    I have mixed feelings about the ac102ex. I have the yellow ones. Though they feel good and everything, my thumb and index finger gets the yellow pigment after every game. And they last that long - takes me about 8 hours then the grip gets holes on where my thumb rests when holding a neutral grip

    My grips usually last me a week or sometimes when really lucky half a week more. I have really sweaty hands and hold the racket quite firm. Also due to a large hand size I use two overgrips to get the feel of the racket.

    Till now have used four brands in grips with similar results.

    Yonex AC140EX Dri - Black/Red - 1 Week
    Adidas Performance feel - Black/Green - 5 Days
    Wilson Pro - Dry - Black/Red - 9 Days
    Karakal X-Dri - Black - 6 Days
    Karakal X-Gel - Black/Blue - 11 Days

    Play daily, each session 3~4hrs.

    Just watching the Asian games final ladies doubles.

    Greysi Polli changes her racquet in the second game 17-20 down. She indicated to the umpire her grip was too wet, hence the racquet change.

    But sometimes that can be a delay tactic to take a breather, just like retying shoelaces.

    The umpire can reject toweling down but can't reject a racket change due to damp hands and handle.

    Have a look and see how much a delay was made.

    Yeah, I've seen it before already.

    I've also seen some players change their rackets when they want to towel down their hands but are rejected by the umpire.

    Anyways not many secs as a delay tactic, but just the same as tying shoes and walking to the side to fling off sweat. Even if needed to refocus.

    It may be used as a delay, but actually changing the racket indicates it's indeed bothering the player - I'd rather play on with the same racket and not get my time-out than change it and potentially be thrown off a bit by a slightly different weight or grip!

    The other way round for me. I would rather change the racquet in the midde of a game. That is why I have three of the same model.

    And that's why it's more suspect when the player is about to receive a serve at a critical juncture... like game point.
