    Was looking in the forums and couldn't find my rackets so I thought I would post them for those nostalgia buffs. I still use the Cab21's in club play, but prefer my Cab35's. Going to be ordering a couple of Cab50's as they say it the best of the two :)
    The Cab21's have the same cone code - 3 29073 CD with no serial numbers to be seen on the shaft. The Cab 8DX has 3 058 CD.

    Nice, you've kept them in good condition.

    I was also a lover of the Cab21, grew up playing with it for the best part of 10yrs (was using the Cab 8SP when I first started), then moved on the Ti-10 for about 7 or so years then gradually onto ArcSabers. Very few stick with the old oval head Cabs now, but I still play with mine occasionally.

    I have 2 blue/gold ones and one pink/silver one. I also used to play with the Cab20 most of my old racquets are kept as part of my collection as they are hard to find in good condition now.

    Actually, the Cab21 pink was the first version. The blue one came later...

    Also, the Cab8 has many versions before and after the DX version.

    Learn something new everyday... ! My pink Cab21 is probably in better condition than my blue.

    I also have a red Cab 20 and a few blue Cab 20, which one came first out of them?

    Pretty sure both colours were released at the same time. Same for Cab21 [​IMG] ... Unless maybe in Japan, only the blue colours were released first(??) ...
