    Arrow Grip Size

    .
    Exact measurement size (whether in inches or cms), I do not know.

    But in both Yonex and Carlton, the smaller the Grip Size number, the bigger the grip/handle size.

    Therefore, your Calton Airblade 1000 with G5 is with the smallest handle.

    dont know which grip size suits u? just go into the shop and pick up 2 rackets with G4 and G5 grips separately, and swing them about. give or take a little, depending on whether u plan to wrap an overgrip directly over the original or tear off the factory grip first. whichever feels more comfortable is the one u should go with.

    weight wise, u really have to look at your own playing style and strength

    good luck

    APACS, the larger the number, the larger the grip.

    Lightbulb I hope that BWF can standardise the weight/measurement info for our Badminton

    Yes, it's informative but I hope that one day BWF could step in to tell ALL racket manufactures to follow an universal system for "G" grip sizes.

    For "Tension" of recommended racket stringing, manufacturers are informing us in either/both in 'Kilograms' (Kg) and/or in 'Pounds' (Lb).

    For "U" weight of the rackets, manufacturers are now informing us in 'Grams'.

    For the weight of shuttlecocks, BWF is still allowing 'Grains' and 'Grams' to be used. However, Yonex is still using the No.1 to No.5 for their shuttlecock speeds.

    Yes, I really hope that BWF can standardise the weight/measurement info for our Badminton.

    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.

    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.
    .
    Know I posted it before but apparently not in here as I couldn't find it: U was introduced when the first (Yonex) racket went Under 100 grams: the Carbonex 8 B-8500. Before there was L, 2L and 3L meaning Light, extra light (sub 110gr.) and extra extra light (sub 105gr.)

    • L: >110gr. ? (said +115gr. but that means we've lost 5gr. in between )
    • 2L: <110gr.
    • 3L: <105gr.
    • U: <100gr.
    • 2U: <95gr.
    • 3U: <90gr.
    • 4U: <85gr.
      etc.


    Came across this info in a series of articles on the history of racket development as posted on a dutch badminton news portal some years ago.

    Thank you for the info.

    So, it is one step-down of 5gr in weight, for each higher number denoted (in the U).

    Wonder if they will make lower weights (like 5U and/or 6U) in future?

    We already are at 5U with Yonex in the ArcSaber 6 and FB and also there is another step lighter but instead of calling it 6U they have introduced the "F" category.

    So to continue/finish off:
    • 5U: <80gr.
    • F: <75gr.


    Doubt we'll get lighter ones but we might see 2F, 3F, rather than U from there on.

    I must go find to try the "F" specifications rackets. Guess they could be excellent for Doubles play.

    Probably some more brands with rackets in the 70's (whether or not true weight) but not sure if they use the same weight system or just give the average weight +/- x grams.

    That would be the ArcSaber FB (FlashBoost) in the lighter of two weights available (5U and F) http://yonex.com/products/badminton/...es/arcsaber-fb
