    2u= the weight of racket which is for ur case 90-94g
    g4=size of grip which is small for urs
    16-20Lb 7-9kgs = recomended tension...

    thanks for ur quick reply...

    do u or anyone have any idea any other ranges or
    meaning for other code?

    eg. 3U (i've read about it somewhere) what's its weight range

    or if G4 means small grip, any other code and its corresponding meaning?


    are these information(s) international standards or
    just a practice by yonex?

    i actually have 3 rackets (but yet to string 1)

    -cab8000
    -cab880 tour sp
    -cab20 tour sp (unstrung)

    all bought from discounts/promotions :eek: (hey i'm not $$$)

    =>i'm not pro enough to feel the effects of using 2 diff
    rackets in playing... (is it really unhealthy?)
    unless u're talking abt isometric head and round head...
    i also have iso25 and iso50... ends up hitting the shuttlecock
    with the frame 1/2 the time... (not used to iso head:( )

    =>i thought that "tour sp" supposed to mean better, but
    my friends, father and i all thought that cab8000 is
    lighter and stronger...

    (unless there r other criterions in deciding a good racket)...

    i'm also trying to find out more abt stringing, which of course,
    will b in another post...
