    I think that these grips are good, but when you can't afford to replace them after two matches then you've got to search for something else.

    1 week or more? LOL. Need to break this down into hours.... After 1 match, it has lost all its properties.

    True.

    There's gotta be a choice in the poll for 2-3 hours.

    I said 1 week because it was the shortest option. I can use them for 2 sessions (about 4-5 matches) before they're useless. If I weren't so lazy, I'd replace them every day I use them.

    Exactly. The summer leaves the grip dead after one week of solid practicing in the heat in the middle of the day (if even that long!).

    The winter allows the grip to last for a long time, but will die in a max of 3 weeks in the cold.

    It's still my favorite grip after trying so many others, though.

    Im not sure exactly how long the grip would last me as I replace it after every match. Living in Florida I sweat alot and the grip is usually damp and dirty after one match.

    I think you should redo the poll and ask how many hours of play each person gets because weeks mean greatly different things to different players. Also, it matters quite a bit whether the hours are in the summer or winter.

    Right. I played a 3 hour match the other night with high humidity and temps almost 100 and the grip was useless about halfway thru the match

    I replace my Yonex Supergrap about every 3 hours in the summer.

    I think it would be better if everyone clarifies what is their definition for "OG existence"

    Wow, I only change mine every week or so, and I thought I was changing them pretty often!

    I use Gamma Supremes, but it's pretty much the same answer. I use white, so when it gets dirty enough to start slipping, I change it. In the summer months, sometimes I have to change it after a couple of hours play. Depends if they get slippery or not when I serve. That's when I usually notice it. If I have to squeeze too much to hold onto the racquet, it's time for another one. I play about 3-4 hours each day and I generally don't play more than 2 days on a grip because it tends to lose it's grip.

    Depends on how hot it is outside and what surface I play on, usually change them with every string job...nothing worse than getting a clients frame with a dry-rotted wilson pro on it
