On most rackets, there is either a sticker like the Yonex ones, or they are printed on the racket what it's weight (U) and grip size it is (G).

a warm welcome to BC.
may all of your badminton related questions be answered here.........
2U, 3U or 4U are used in Yonex series to indicate the racket's weight. 2u is the heaviest, while 4U is the lightest. G3, G4, G5 are used to indicate the grip's circumference size. G3 has bigger circumference than G4 and G4 is bigger than G5, G5 is the smallest available.
what kind of weight and size that you are looking for? head-heavy type? head-lite type? even balance?

thanks for you guys replies
it helps a lot!
no wonder i couldnt see the spec on my frd's wilson racquet...his racquet only states the exact weight of it.
ummm im not good at smashing but i would love to do high clears and drop shots.

regarding to this thread:
the difference between 3U and 4U is only weight, however i read through some threads saying 4U is more fragile?Is that correct?

There is also a plain U size (which is heavier than 2U), as well as G6, G7...etc., although these sizes are much more uncommon and usually only found in select models.
