    From the pictures it seems to have the same head geometry... Definitely seems to have corners at 10 and 2.

    Absolutely a stunning looking racket. Based on the color, it seems that it is made for man.

    Just for fun, check out the torsion on this racket, it's insane... Feels kind a cheap to me :(

    I've had it in my hans for a while, feels kinda medium-flex head-heavy, but the frame has so much torsion when you twist the blade, you can almost twist it to 25% (45 degrees)...

    Weird stuff for a racquet of this price...

    Carlton doesn't sell in 'U's, but at a specific weight +-1g. If they say the racket weighs 89g, it could weigh anywhere between 88 and 90g.
    The kinesis is specified at 86g.

    86g +/-1 is not basically a 4U. It is 3U period ... ;)

    4U is 80-84g, no matter what your magazines tell you.

    It's probably a typo.

    I thought 4U was 80g-85g while 3U was 85g-90g.

    Well if you see it like this: 4U = [80g-85g[ 3U = [85g-90g[ then yes :p

    It's neither 3U, nor 4U, it's 86+/-1. Considering most people can tell a 2g weight difference, the weight banding system is below par for real classification, so Carlton's system is a better descriptor.
    But ... Funnily enough the title of the thread doesn't mention weight of any kind <3

    totally agree 86+/-1 is much more accurate got a 3u racket befor and was top end weight of the specification

    This is a thread for the racket, and not to promote particular websites.
    Though looking forwards to further reviews :)
