    I've searched and searched and searched. There are lots of posts on Cabs, some very good. However, there's no compilation, no one all knowing thread.

    Now the dumb question, anyone interested in a compilation?

    Is there anyone defining thread on any topic?

    What are we defining? There are lots of threads talking about cabs, which cab has most power, how good they are etc...

    An all in one post defining all the specs and general performance and feel. A little history, etc...

    Just so when someone new or even seasoned looks for info on Cabs, they don't have to sift through 100+ posts looking for bits and pieces.

    Note: from now on, if and when I do posts that may need updating, I will save them in Excel and export as a .gif file...so they can be updated (if needed). :p

    Me a Moderator?! :eek: I can barely moderate myself. :eek::p

    Regarding the DP (Definitive Post), just seems easier so most of the same questions will not be asked over and over and over and over again.

    I am sure there are many more, as if you search using different words you usually get completely different threads. Feel free to post some more here as and when members find them.

    Enjoy:)

    That's my point. :)

    There are far too many posts. Ideally, all of them should be incorporated into one concise, easy to read post.

    Feel Free to add more then. I believe my previous post summarises the best and most informative ones however. They were hand selected from 500 Search results.

    I Don't think you can summarize a Fully informative posts describing "all knowing" information about cab rackets though. As I said before however, be our guest:)

    Hmm, if you guys don't mind me squeezing in and give my 2 cents..

    ..hmm, maybe what Dan is after is sort of an "organized" sub-forum, which talks specifically abt Cabs, in general. Now, i know there is already a racket equipment forum, which deals specificically with racket reviews and such. And since jamesd20 has already shown/posted some links, maybe it'll be too much to condense them into 1 thread.
    So perhaps, i don't know, this is my suggestion, maybe a 'Carbonex' sub-forum can be created say under the "Racket Recommendation/Comparison" sub-forum and all topics related, pertaining to Cabs can be dumped in there, rather than being scattered all over the "Racket Recommedantion/Comparison" sub-forum(or who knows what other forums), hence we have to sift thru them.
    Of course, the decision to put where that sub-forum will be is up to the mods/Kwun..:confused: ;)

    I'd be interested ...

    That's not a dumb question. I'd definitely be interested in such a compilation if someone has time to do that.
