    at/in his prime

    You're in/at your prime right now and shouldn't waste it - Can both be used or said?

    Re: at/in his prime

    I have never heard "at" used to describe a person's prime. A wine or cheese may be at its prime, but people in their prime are always "in" rather than "at" in my opinion.
