I just got the racket and I found out that the mysterious Euro Grip is just another name for a G1 grip size...no idea why they didn't give that info in the online shop...

Head grip sizing:
G0 (3 1/8)
G1 (3 2/8) - the 'Euro Grip size' (no idea why )
G2 (3 3/8)
G3 (3 4/8)

Ahmeh to reply to your question:
1. A 3U is heavier than a 4U, hence deriving more power for smashes but less maneuverability.
2. A 3U has a longer life span than a 4U due to its weight, its not so delicate.
3. This is the most important, it depends on how u feel about the racket, remember its all about personal feel, whats good for one may not be good for another.
Hope this info helps
PS: I have 2 Armortec 900Ps, 3U G4, BG 80 strings strung @ 23lbs, original grip replaced.

[The racket tension is denoted by "x lb to y lb"; the minimum to the maximum stringing tension recommended.]
so if i string it. MORE than the tension recommended, what will happen?
like the Ti5 limit is 16-20.
if i put it up to 25? will the frame crack?

1) Whether G1/G5 is the highest or lowest, is there a standardization of the relation between the different Bevels wide/narrow/diagonal: www.badmintonbible.com/articles/grips-guide/racket-bevels.php
Please I need the exact measures of the bevels if it exist?

How to remember the different specifications by Yonex.
I posted these comments in another thread. Thought that it could be good to post it here too.
How to remember the different specifications by Yonex:
The grip size is denoted by "G"; the smaller the number, the larger the handle size.
The weight is denoted by "U"; the smaller the number, the heavier the weight.
For Yonex grip size, I could only guess that G1 was their starting size. When players found that smaller grips are better for them, Yonex started G2 to bring down their grip size. Then came G3, G4, etc......
And for Yonex racket weight, again I could only guess that 1U was their starting weight. When players found that lighter weights are better for them, Yonex started 2U to bring down their racket weight. Then came 3U, 4U, etc......
This is a way to remember the specifications given by Yonex.

All apacs rackets are 4UG2 & their grip sizes are friggin small!!
when comparing head to head with a yonex G4, i think it's still way smaller.
the specs printed on different models of apacs rackets seem to be the same
Mass:85g+/- 1 gram
Balancs 285mm+/- 3mm
does that mean all apacs rackets feel the same other than the printing and design??

Got a stupid question. i been reading about "sweet spot" - can anyone roughly tell me where that is? Is it the area the middle of the racket? Thanks.
05-23-2010, 08:54 PM #64
The higher the tension our stringing is done, the smaller the sweet spot we get

There are 3 main 'stiffness of racket shaft' descriptions
I posted some comments in another thread. Thought that it would be good to post them here too.
How to remember the stiffness of racket shaft descriptions.
There are 3 main shaft descriptions, namely;
* Medium (most common)
The 'not-so-common' descriptions (usually confusing many players) are;
* Medium Stiff (it lies between Medium and Stiff)
* Medium Flexible (it lies between Medium and Flexible)
Then comes the easily understood ones;
* Extra Stiff
* Extra Flexible
