    Hi all, I'm new to yonex frame and I heard there are difference in weight due to the size of handle. I'm interesting in trying out some new frames and can't decide which one should I get. Is the weight on TW accurate? If so the standard one might be too heavy for me. I'm using 4 1/4 but 4 3/8 works for me too.
    Thanks :)

    In the this particular racket(Yonex old school way to make rackets)
    there will be a difference in weight for the same grip size, really easily solved by TW and a few others.
    URD Ti Lite is the UL 4 1/4 and UL 4 3/8, which the UL will most likely be the same weight.

    The URD Ti 80 is the SL 4 3/8 and SL 4 1/2.

    If you choose a 4 3/8 UL it can be the same weight as UL 4 1/4.

    So either way you can ask TW to choose it for you.

    All new rackets are the same weight(or very close) for different grip sizes most of time.

    Thanks for the info Buckethead, and do you mean 4 1/4 for RD Ti 80 is UL as well?
    just realize there is a typo in the title :-?
