Does anyone know if HaRav HaGaon Asher Weiss wears Techelet?

Also, why or why not?

@avi yes this is that person – Hacham Gabriel Jan 5 '12 at 16:39
Here is a list of audio lectures by Rav Weiss about Tzitzis. I must confess I did not listen to them all the way through and what I did hear did not mention Tachelet, but I still thought they might be interesting in this context. Enjoy. Rabbi Asher Weiss on TzitTzit Go to link, go to Bamidbar, Shlach, and there you will find the list of shiurim. – morah hochman Jan 10 '12 at 19:27
Although the question was already answered, why do you care to know if he does? – Yehoshua Sep 22 '12 at 19:24

He does not. (My Brother In Law learned in his Yeshiva).
