    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

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

    I don't think his intent is to advertise for the website, but merely point out a good source for the racket should anyone on here wish to purchase one .

    It was not my intent to promote, but i do know from reading here on these forums that finding a good place to shop is hard.

    Since the place i wrote about more or less was the only place that where/is selling the racket i wrote it.

    There was another site that had it, but from own research and other members here that site isnt trustworthy.

    The kinesis I bought has 86g printed on the racquet, although it does feel a bit light like a 4U. The kinesis on sale in the link below states 95g...isn't that like a 2U!

    I'll try to post a short review once I've re-strung it.

    Just wanted to bump this Thread from last year in case anyone is thinking of buying a Kinesis.

    This is the best price I've found here in the UK:

    http://www.directsportseshop.co.uk/S...kets&NavID=447

    I'm currently playing with a Razor 1.0 and loving it. Would like to have another as a spare before it's discontinued and it's tempting at 94 with free delivery, but I'd love to try the Kinesis, even at a 46.00 price differential.

    Anyone compared the two?

    Derek

    The Kinesis feels headlight despite the even balance labeling. The frame is extremely thin too and it's easy to generate speed. Power is amazing for such a fast and light racket. With factory strings felt wobbly and innacurate, I couldn't even clear in a strait line. A friend complained of ringing and vibrations... perhaps to do with the dodgy factory strings too. I played a lot with VTT which is similar to V1.0. I'd say VTT feels a little more sluggish but has more control with bg80 at 26lbs. Perhaps this is a stupid comparison to make given the different strings.

    It'd be interesting to hear a verdict on better strings then ^^

    appreciate your efforts in letting the rest of us know about a good racket shop tho i don't live in Sweden. it's always good to know about them since there are so many people selling fake stuff these days!!

    finally someone agrees with me that this racket does not swing like even balance but head light.
