    There is no Yonex to be that light. The lightest would be the 4U however that would be too fragile and weak. Go with the 3Us.

    Just as Matt said 4U is the lightest for yonex but is too fragile. 3U is your best option but 5 grams isn't going to affect you that much.

    What would be the reason you would want to use a racket that light?

    I was just shown a racket from Ashaway that claimed to be 6u... that's 70-75g.

    Note that Yonex is not in the race to make the lightest rackets, nor are the lightest rackets always the best to play with.

    Very light rackets are certainly within current technology limits (graphite without resorting to exotic materials) but they likely will not last and might not play as well. My last 5u racket (ashaway nano superlight) played okay but didn't last too long. My current 3U Cab30ms trounces it in every department except being slightly heavier and having a smaller sweetspot.
