    Sysop, can you please confirm the weight/grip size variations between the UL and SL versions of Yonex racquets?

    Yonex UL/SL

    I have a new Yonex Super rd tour 90 with a cardboard: here's the list of there weight:

    XFL = Extra Feather Light == 9.9 - 9.9 oz
    UXL = Ultra extra light = 9.9 - 10.6 oz
    UL = Ultra ligt = 10.6 - 11.3 oz
    SL = Super light = 11.3 - 12.0 oz
    L = Light = 12.0 - 12.5 oz

    My 3 Rd tour 90 in 1/4 come in at 11.5 oz and 2 11.6 I add 2 overgrip and vib damp now they are 12.5 oz .....

    Hope this help!

    I have a yonex rd ti-80 in a ul 1/8 grip size. Why is it so much bigger than my other racquets with the same 1/8 grip size?

    What info do you need? Weight will change from racquet model to racquet model. When we post specs for Yonex racquets we always post the SL spec. Yonex racquets smaller then 4 3/8 are UL, with 4 3/8 and up being SL spec.

    With one caveat . . .

    With some of the older models, including the Ti-80, which was for sale until recently on this site, the 3/8 was a UL, not an SL as with with the RDS models.

    Trust me, I found out the hard way (though I must say, Yonex has great customer service because they swaped me the UL 3/8 I bought new for a new SL 1/2 and all I had to do was pay shipping to them; they overnighted the new one back for free, as there own website at the time didn't specify this either).

    Hi Chris,
    Thanks for replying to my question. I was looking for a definitive list of specs for Yonex players rackets with grips below 3/8.
    RDS 001
    RDS 002 tour
    RQiS 1 tour when it arrives as TW.

    Or is it safe for me to assume that the weight of UL specs will fall into the range posted above?

    Thank you.

    In response to Huppe's Post

    Is the new RDS 002 tour an UL with a 3/8 grip, and an SL with the 1/2 grip?

    On the RD Ti-80 SL starts at 4 1/2.

    I think its absolutely stupid using this system.

    There is a 20g difference between the SL and UL in the 002 range.

    When it says there is a g difference does it mean in the entire racquet or the handle or the head? if it does doest that affect the balance?
