    Default hi im new to badminton and got few questions.. :)

    i have read some posts here and learnt that U means the racquet weight and G means racquet size (correct me if im wrong :P)
    but, how do u tell your racquet spec?

    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.

    ahh sorry i didnt even know theres a serach engine, i will make the best use of it
    regarding to this thread:
    http://www.badmintoncentral.com/foru...ad.php?t=45735
    the difference between 3U and 4U is only weight, however i read through some threads saying 4U is more fragile?Is that correct?

    Lighter usually means less graphite material, so everything else being constant that generally makes a lighter racket more fragile..

    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.
