    I'm just curious which version of the 002 Tour everybody is using. Please take the poll.

    Looks like most people prefer the SL so far. How different does the SL play from the UL version? Looks like there's about 20 grams of difference in weight between them. Seems like the UL would be more maneuverable and allow for more customization.

    i had SL so far and i just got UL. I found a little bit too heavy the SL version. I think it's not the weight but the distribution of the mass that makes it feel heavier for its weight.
    I hit the wall today (with the UL) for 30' and i liked it better than the SL.
    Tomorrow i will play with it and i ll come back.

    Yeah, the SL just seems a bit too hefty for me. I bought the UL version yesterday off the big auction site. I've been wanting to try a size 2 Yonex grip anyway because I always change the stock grips to a Gamma Hi-Tech and use a Supergrap overgrip which increases the grip size quite a bit. Because of that, my previous size 3 Yonex grips ended up being about 4 5/8 after all was said and done and I think that's way too big for me. I think after customizing the size 2 UL it's going to be just right.

    Other than the 20g difference in weight, are the balance and flex different too?

    I guess is about the same. Just the weight and the swingweight differences.

    I use and prefer the SL, Normally I prefer the 1/4 grip size but YOnnex 3/8 grip seems a bit smaller than some companies and i am ok with that.

    I like the heavier weight of the SL
