Rackets with smaller U's are heavier and stronger

I am just wondering guys, I have two Ti-10 New version at 3u5 and 3u4. I am not sure is it just me, the 3u4 feels heavier than the 3u5. Is it simply because the grip size is bigger hence the handle is more materialized?

The grip is slightly heavier since it is bigger but you have to remember that U is a 5g range.

A 3UG4 racquet of the same model should weigh the same and have the same balance point as a 3UG5. G5 is a smaller handle (circumference) than G4 but they weigh the same because G4 has more wood taken out in the handle inner hollow than a G5. The same applies to a 3UG2 or 3UG3.

Balance point is exactly the same, but then the overall weight with the same overgrip, same strings, and same tension were 97g and 102g respectively. The CP has more chips in the paint as well! 5g isn't a lot I guess.

Hi everyone, my friend brought up the topic of Yonex racquets that are made in or distributed to Taiwan, the grip for categorizing(G1 begin smallest and G6 is biggest) is different from their own distribution is this true?

if someone can summarize and put the info into matrix form will be good for others to refer. this will eliminate lots of general question like which is the best grip size.

Some with larger hands might still prefer smaller handle/grip size
It's not that simple. Some with larger hands might still prefer smaller handle/grip size.
It might be better to advise a new player to buy his/her first racket with the smallest grip size. Then later, add on overgrip(s) to increase the handle size.
By the way, when adding an overgrip, it is better to choose the thinner ones, IMHO. We do not want the handle to lose its defined shape. We need to know where the racket head is facing when holding the racket with our eyes closed.

Well, it depends on your playing style. If you need to smash better then the grip cannot be too small. If you wat better control then the grip cannot be too big. So that's just my experienced and hope that help.

Hey guys...anyone knows what the 'Euro Grip size' means? It is used on Head rackets and I'm quite confused.
03-26-2009, 04:24 PM #48
Gripsize: G0 (3 1/8)
G1 (3 2/8)
G2 (3 3/8)
G3 (3 4/8)

Sorry, that's not what I was asking...I found a racket that says it is Euro Grip size.
And other metallix 2000 rackets from the same shop:
Anyone can make sense of that?

Perhaps HEAD is warning customers that their grips are not the Japanese grip sizes
From what Danstevens has posted, HEAD is not following the 'G' sizes/scales used by YONEX.
Perhaps HEAD is just warning customers that their grips are based on 'Euro Grip Size', not on the Japanese grip size.
If you read earlier posts, you will find that some Chinese grip sizes are also different from the Japanese grip sizes.

I got this answer from sweatband.com:
The Euro Grip is a fraction smaller grip than the standard UK grip size, but is exactly the same frame.
