how much time dou you usually get out of tourna grip?
I only get about one match sometimes less. Tournagrip durability is not good. One reason for this might be the fact that you have to stretch it more then other grips to get it to cover the whole handle. I have changed to Yonex Super Grap it has a similar feel to tournagrip but is a little thicker resulting in better durability.
I'd say about a weeks worth. It depends on how much you play though. On average, a week sounds about right. I'm cheap though, I use to flip my Tourna over after one side got worn.
When buying tournagrip, I always purchase the Xlong version. It covers most handles easily and doesn't need to be stretched as thin. Cost is a couple cents more, but it is worth it.
You get what you pay for
Here's the thing about tourna grips: they feel great and they are very cheap.
You can get them in reels of 30 here for a price of $0.83 per grip.
Sure they wear out fast.... but they are pretty cheap to replace and they are really worth it if you are serious about tennis
The black tournagrip lasts longer than the blue but has a different feel that suggests a very different composition; not as effective as the blue.
they last me about 5 hours of play, but are agian very cheap
Damn things are absolutely useless in the cold...
I usually get about 6 hours of play from a Tournagrip XL (don't have to stretch it) in mild weather or cold. In summer, I get about 2-3 hours.
