    it's approx 3.5in or 89mm which according to several sites it makes it a G3? Regardless, that's the physical diameter. Not sure the "size". Hope this helps?

    6U does not mean 60 grams. If I remember the reasoning correctly, 6U means 6 "U" 's under the old "standard" weight of 100g. So 6U would be 70-74g or thereabouts, just as 4U is 80-84, 3U is 85-89, etc....

    the specs of brand differs, eg: 86g is already 4U for apacs but only 3U for yonex.....
    you have to check with each brand....
    apacs feather light is 69g if im not mistaken.....
    another light racket is karakal m-tec70 iso gel which just 70g.....
    i think these are the lightest racket so far....
    if there are more just add it up....:-)

    Where do you see that 86 is 4U? Looks like 3U to me...

    hen again, Apacs isn't very consistent on specs....

    And the feather light could certainly be 69g, I'm not going to bother looking that racket up so I'm not disputing that... but if it is, that's still not 60g as said above.

    yeah, i guess so, the specs is not consistent....

    increase over your handle weight with lead tape than u feel your racket super light !!
    lightness in term of feeling not the gross weight at a racket...
