I know its usually personal preference, and i have sworn by Superstar Excel's for the past few years.

I seem to be wearing them out much quicker now days with the type of riding or harder death grip?

What suggestions do you have?

I like a bigger grip (less hand cramp) possibly a ergo design?

Links or at least pictures (i like pictures) please.

I use the Superstar mushroom's and find them very comfy, i used to use the excels too.

Do you rotate your grips?

Gets a bit more use out of them.

I love the Renthal medium grips on the Norco mate. They've seen plenty of 'death grip action' and are still going strong.

I stopped in lakeside, looked in Decathlon (as i was there) and Evans, i picked up some Ergo ones, used to use them years ago so will spend a bit of time setting them up tonight (need to be in exactly the right position)

I had Ergo ones on the Rockrider and then after that all grips are normally flat medium/hard ones.

Can't cope with soft ones...

Did like your bros horns for climbing but not sure I'd want them for day to day riding.

Aren't they just expensive normal grips?

I've found superstar (and uberbike) grips seem to be wearing quicker than they used too, but for the price I'm not too bothered.
