    Just received my 3U yesterday: 88.5 g dry.

    Originally I wanted to go for a heavy 4U (tested and liked a clubmate's 4U before...) but they were out of stock in Asia at the time I placed the order (thanks Victor Europe for taking all of them... :mad:). Instead, I was hoping for a light end 3U but they indeed seem to be really hard to come by. I ordered the racket from Squash Eric - and knowing him, I am more than sure he would have found me a lighter one if possible. I have become a die hard 4U guy over the last couple of years, so let's see if I can still make that JS12 work for me. First test ride will be during next week's club night.

    I'm pretty sure you can go for a 4U now. They're all coming in at like 84-85g

    Yikes. If that's without string. They're practically on the cusp of 2U. And those are tiring to use even if user friendly.

    If I remember correctly it was 89.1g dry. With LN#1 and Rkep G16 over original grip (plastic removed), it's 98.6g.

    Ah then that's not so bad. My first 2 from SOSA were practically nearly 90g without the strings and plastic.

    Don't worry. Just look at Malaysia. The answer is the same.
