    .
    Are you referring to the Yonex G1 grip size? If so, then it's the larger grip size. Is that what you are trying to tell us about this 'Euro Grip'?

    Nope, sorry. I studied the Head site a little bit and found out that Head numbers their grips from G0 to G3, G0 being the smallest. The difference between the grip sizes is 1/8 of an inch.

    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.

    Default tension

    [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?

    Some will crack, and some won't. But, it is some risk you are taking.
    Do let us know the results if you are game enough to try it.

    Default Bevels

    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?

    Arrow 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.

    wow...
    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.

    Enquiry:
    the specs printed on different models of apacs rackets seem to be the same
    Mass:85g+/- 1 gram
    Flex:8-9
    Balancs 285mm+/- 3mm
    max tension:30lbs

    does that mean all apacs rackets feel the same other than the printing and design??

    Arrow The higher the tension our stringing is done, the smaller the sweet spot we get

    .
    The sweet spot is located in the middle of the string-bed. It's like the middle spot of a trampoline.

    The higher the tension our stringing is done, the smaller the area of sweet spot we get.

    Hi - thanks alot.

    Follow up question:
    1) When smashing - it is best to ensure we hit the sweet spot?
    2) When making drop shots - it is best to ensure we hit the sweet spot?

    Thanks again.

    Generally speaking, hitting from the sweet spot is the best; for we can predict how the shuttlecock will travel.

    Arrow 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;
    * Stiff
    * Medium (most common)
    * Flexible

    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
