    Default 4U/3U Head Heavy

    Hi. Technically saying, does a 4U headheavy racket feel heavier than a 3U headheavy racket? I'm generally referring to the Voltric 80 btw.

    Thank you!

    No "technically" , the swingweight of a 3U is still higher ...

    One seller told me, the material used in the head frame would be the same, what imply the 3U beeing head lighter. I'm not that sure, since I have always picked up 4U for doubles.

    Can you confirm this?

    3U is a little headlighter but because of the overall heavier weight, the swingweight of 3U is still higher than 4U (in general).

    so are you saying that I will move and swing slower with the 4U compared to the 3U?

    in general, a 3u would still feel head heavier even if the 4u has a balanced point further to towards the head
