    Hey Guys,

    I am going out on a limb here and hope that our Singaporean BF breathens could be of assistance. My cousin will be visiting me in Vancouver and I have asked her to get me a CAB22 or CAB20Power (2U/G5). Could you provide me with possible stores in Singapore where I could facilitate her search? Thank you for your attention:)!

    The only place I know that still sells this racket is at Motion Sports, (4th or 5th floor) Paragon, Orchard Road.

    Well, I can imagine any shop along Orchard Road really can't offer bargain prices. It's a tourist trap/shopping mecca there, business overhead has to be really high to operate in that area. Besides, I am not expecting a bargain since the racquet I wanted is on the endangered species list:(.

    Hello.
    Could try Peninsula Shopping Centre(next to Funan the IT Mall). NOT Peninsula Plaza.
    Champion Sports and another shop which I cannot remember still has Cab22.
    However do not expect the same prices as from Bras Basah. Prices are higher here. :)
    Hope this helps. :)

    My acceptable price is around SGD$90-$150. I got my CAB22 from BBEshop in Beijing for US$94 (not including custom tax, shipping and handling). I am looking around that ballpark figure. CAB22 maybe out of production, but Boron-2 they are not:D! Anybody have any suggestions as to possible locations my cousin could find the elusive CAB22 / CAB20 Power?

    Hi cappy75. Your cousin could try Mustafa Center (Main Store and Branch) at Serangoon Road "Little India". I was there last month and saw a few Cab22 and Ti-10 (3U). Sorry I could not remember the prices.

    Ugh! I doubt it will stay there for long after people read this thread:p. My cousin just told me that she'll get her more knowledgeable friend to help her out instead of me bugging her with email updates:D. Really appreciate all your help in this matter! Thanks again, guys:)!

    Hmm....the funny thing is, I just found out that I have a free round trip ticket to asia provided by Northwest. Perhaps I should really go there and grap that thing? :D

    Yeah, where are you now? I doubt it'll still be there after people read this thread:p. I am not hopeful of my cousin find it in that shop:(.

    If you have acted on it 2 weeks ago when I told you where I got them, you will have own at least 2 of them by now. Talk about miss opportunities :eek:

    Now I got 5 of them, the last 2 from a week ago. And yes, you guessed it, I am not selling. :)

    Hey Hooked,

    Yes, I got you to thank for the initial tip. Unfortunately, I didn't know that my cousin's visiting until lately so couldn't take advantage of the tip. I don't expect you to sell them cuz they're really good racquets... well, maybe not yet;). Unless you break racquets on a regular basis, I am sure 5 racquets should last you awhile:D. Anyway, I already have one and am looking only for a backup. I am sure that there are other sources I could go to for those CABs. Thanks for your help, everybody:)!
