    how much did you pay (im guessing around 320) and what grip did you get?

    have fun with your new racket!

    Looks like yeah, Canada seems to have 4UG4 and 5's for some reason. From what I was told, Yonex Canada is suppose to distribute the 3Us.

    320? That's a joke price. How about around $270 and better!

    yeppers about the price (with GST). I could have looked around for a better price, but I am too lazy to do that.

    I wouldn't say it's messed up but that is what is in stock for now. My guess would be that the 3U G5 will be in stock later but most people who want that small grip size want it in 4U.

    Hi Eggroll,

    Are you able to get confirmation that if the 3UG5s are going to be available? I am a bit suprized that the 4U's are brought in since Canada does not normally bring 4Us when popular version is a 3U.

    Put some additonal weight on it to emulate it a 3U :D :D :D :D
    =============================================

    Eggroll, forgot to say, but expect a few local shops to be calling Yonex Canada for answers about the expected 3U shipments!

    I guess there will not be an official answer for your question, I made the order out with 3UG4 too, but lucky or unlucky I got these 4UG4, according to the reviews by those who got this racquet much earlier than us, 4UG4 is not a bad choice at all. Reason why? We are still amazed why Yonex Canada doesn't carry those 30 rolls super grap which our neighbour USA has them for a long while.

    Well to be honest, it is more of a user preference. Most prefer 3Us compared to the 4Us regardless what the racket it is.

    About the super grap, that's up to Yonex Canada's GM to make the call since they make the decision about what they want to bring in.

    Of course I can get a Yonex Supergrap 30 roll myself if I wanted. It is a website away.

    I portray myself a strong and big guy, but after 1 hour's play, I feel my AT800 OF a bit heavier to swing, so I am looking for the balance between head heavy and head light, for me maybe 4U and head heavy balance is a better choice, anyways, I will string one racquet tonight and try it out on Sunday night.

    Sometimes you just get what they can send you. Remember we are North America not Asia. Demand dictates supply.

    Yes, but this is Canada!! Diversity ?

    Yonex Canada has variety compared to Yonex USA as some of us know because they do not care about the sport. So it does not quite make sense with is with this change.
