    hi

    I have a friend of mine selling me a Yonex Carbonex 23 with bg 68Ti strings, he also said it was 2uG4.. wat does this mean? It also has a muscle power frame. He's selling it to me for 90 canadian dollars; is the price worth it?

    thanks for your time and consideration

    Welcome to BF Intr3pid.
    I advice you to do a searce to what you want to know.

    2uG4 :
    2U is the weight of the racket.
    G4 is the size of the racket grip.

    90$ is a very good price if it is very good or better condition.

    You should ask your friend that. It might even be fake.

    The paint chip isn't going to affect the racquet's overall power.

    You don't seem to know much about badminton yet you are buying a cab23...:rolleyes: hehe

    if you are just starting badminton.....and you're not 100% sure of the Cab23 yet..then i suggest you get something else from a store...eg :rolleyes: umm whatever you want. because things are new and have warranty, while if you buy from your friend, you might not and it's used...but it's your choice. for me, when i started badminton, i started with an MP44...i got it at Yo's Sports.

    well its up to you...if you get it post pics of it! :p

    The paint chip makes it worth less :rolleyes:...

    Well if it's JUST one SMALL paintchip.... Then I guess it won't affect much.

    Heh, Cab23 is a nice racquet, I want one myself :rolleyes:

    Well from the first post of this thread... You didn't know about the weight and grip sizes. I think that was why he suspected you of not knowing much;)
