Thread: How long do your grips last?

I use Wilson Cushion Aire replacement grips, since they give the best feel and they're the most durable ones as well. Moreover, overgrips tend to make the handle too thick. It's some 2 or 3 months those Wilson grips last, I'm using 2 rackets though.

I use Karakal PU Super grips and they last about 3 to 4 weeks.
I'm going to try Yonex towel grips soon though.

How can you tell when your grip needs to be replaced? Using Stock grip seems fine for me on my Futobaya TI 4200f.

I use Yonex super graps in white so they get pretty dirty but they last me a good month or so.

Don't exactly know the model of my grip (Kimuno, spell right??) but usually single layer with the thinnest one. Guess I am not crazy afterall cos usual play time 12 hours at least a week and grip last only 2-3 weeks...mannn cost me a fortunate

I use yonex-black but it only last me 2 weeks or so.
In my opinion, I think the other colors last longer perhaps due to the amount of dye in them?

I use towel grips on some racquets, these I change once virtually every 'session' of badminton which is 1 to 2 hours. I don't like the feel of Monsoon towel grip (I bought in the form of a coil) on my racquets once it's been used for longer than that.
Yonex towel grips last me longer, despite seeming Thinner. They're also 'less fluffy'/comfy, but...I prefer it, strangely. I like to still be able to feel the handle whatever the grip.

Using yonex super grab, is the only thing i've seen sold at UBC =(. Usually last me 3 days cause I'm one of those people who look like they just walked out of a shower. 3-4 hours per day 5-6 days per week.

I use towel grip and it normally lasts me about a month but when there's a important tournament, I change the night before.
