    A lot of Victor rackets seem to come in two different weights for the exact same model. My question: Is the weight written on the racket? I want to be able to tell without weighing it or asking the store seller because a lot of seller doesn't know this either.

    So Victor owners, please do tell.

    Victor has the same system as Yonex, 3U / 4U, etc.

    Victor also has the same issue with Yonex, each "U" range is 5grams so there can be variations.

    Perhaps I didn't make my question clear enough.

    I know Victor use the U system. But there can be 2 weight in the same exact racket model.

    For example, Victor Power Waves 11 came in 2U and 3U weight. They both look the same, so how can I differentiate them without weighing or asking the store owner? Is the weight written on the racket?

    I'm also having difficulty determining the weight of my new rackets, having recently bought two Artery Tec Ti 101 Powers. The rackets don't specify an exact weight. Instead, each racket has a printed sticker on the cone with the words 'W-2 G4', which presumably refers to the size of the handle. Being relatively new to Victor can anybody tell me what these words mean? Both rackets feels considerably heavy - which I like - even without a grip.

    Assuming you bought it from a UK distributor of Victor, then Weight: 93g (taken from their website) I believe Victor W2 = Yonex 2U

    I'm not so sure because my other one has a 'W-1-G4' sticker yet both rackets weigh the same... sort of. Both rackets were bought at the same time and from the same retailer. http://victor-sport.co.uk/
