    U's are weight measured in grams that Yonex (and some Badminton companies) use in specs.

    The higher the U (in Yonex racquets), the less it weights.

    3u is lighter than 2u
    2u is heavier than 4u

    (not so sure, just pure guess)
    2u is around 85 grams to 90 grams
    3u is around 75-85 grams
    4u is around 65-75 grams

    what about G5, G4, G3

    do they affect the weight? or just bigger or smaller grip?

    Grip size is determined by G.

    The higher the number, the smaller the grip (or diameter of the grip).

    G3 is bigger than G4.
