    I need some help to decide. I am very interested in buying the Cab30MS but I can't decide wether to get a 2U or 3U.

    I have been using my Ti-10 (2U) for 2 years now and would like to shift to an oval head after using a Cab20MS(2u) to at least simulate a Cab30MS. However, the Cab20MS(2u) feels (as heavy) and plays like my Ti-10(2u).

    I had some issues in using a (3U) racket because I had some timing problems (AT-700 3U). But according to some people, the Cab30MS(3U) plays like a Ti-10(2U).

    For you guys who have played with Cab30MS(2u) and (3u), which of the 2 is better to use?

    Thanks in advance for your opinions!

    Personally, I think cab30ms is stiff but not quite as head heavy as Ti10. But whether 2u or 3u, still down to ur preference.

    im getting a cab30ms in about 4 weeks, (friend has gone to china bringing one back to aus with her) she never heard of it, so i hope she gets the lighter out of the 2u or 3u), will be having either bg80 for sure or bg88ti if she can find some. agh 4 weeks is ages, especially seeing as i have to play with my fractured racquet (cab8100 light).

    I will be purchasing mine (2U) by next week and will be handcarried by my friend in October. I guess I will be seeing it in a month from now. As you said, its going to be quite a long wait.

    I will let you know how it feels when I get to test it.

    If your friend does not know too much about badminton equipment, maybe email her about this forum (i.e. cab030 and cab30ms are totally different stuff!!) to let her "study" a bit. :D

    Make sure she goes to reputable dealers (i.e. BBE Shop, BBE Sports in Beijing, etc), and never think 20% of the real price is a "good deal". :rolleyes:
