    Before getting any one's reply, I have weighed it in my office with a electronic scale, it weighs 102 grams without string.

    "3L" is even more heavier than "U" 95-99 grams

    Is that the old one with a T-joint, dark red wine color? If it is, it's rather fragile @ the joint, I used that long2 time ago, over 30yrs ago, for singles play

    We don't see L anymore because after 1980, carbon fibre became much more popular and racquets were lighter.

    I think it went 2L, 3L, U, 2U and then 3U. Obviously I am too young for these L racquets.... LOL
