    Here are some pictures of the new orange color of Carbonex 20 :)

    The frame is cool Black outside and silver inside. While the top has orange lines around. :)

    The shaft is very pretty. It's like Cab-23, half translucent paint (you can see some graphite lines there) Also, it states out it's regular length and it's having the built-in t-joint inside. (It's weird to state the built-in t-joint at the paint...)

    The cone and grip are standard. Same as before. The butt is the same as any other Cab-20s; the black and gold yonex logo.

    PS:Notice something wrong on the shaft? :cool:
    (Hint: Armortec Limited Edition)

    Nice...I guessed after a year of not offering it (2004 only has the Cab-20MS available, right?), the demand for it was just too great.

    Goes to show that the Cab-20 is basically the best overall racquet available.

    what a beauty.

    the revolutionary racket that came out in 1984. first racket with a built-in t-joint that has been the signature of all Yonex racket since then. first racket with a one piece construction. so well made and designed that some pros still swears by it until recently. so popular that Yonex is still making it after 21 years. i doubt any other badminton product has been in market for so long.

    and now it has a new dress in a sleek and modern design.

    i need to add a drooling smilie for sure.

    PS how come it is not strung, let your instincts guide you to the stringing machine.

    Hello, I was under the impression that Cab 20s were discontinued from Yonex overall. Does this mean that Cab 21 and other classics are still available in Japan but not in other parts of the world? Is the Cab 20 just the same product as the Cab 20 MS but with a more familiar name?

    Bluejeff, What's wrong with the shaft?

    Still couldn't find what Bluejeff try to point out here. Since I never held any AT before, so it's more difficult to find out.
