    Yonex Cab 8 was launched in 1978!

    Most folks that I know if they have the old rackets uses them for warm up (heavier than today's rackets) or training but not in play as no one would want to play with them in doubles in case they clashes rackets (guess which racket would break in those situations)

    That is a good intermediate racket, if u can handle oval head n its weight. A good training racket, much better than mid-end victor/yonexes. Just try stringing it at 23-25 ACCURATE digital m/c.

    I prefer that racket than any sub $100 yonex/lining/victor. However my accuracy is not as good as bfre due to my age so i use isometric rackets

    Cab8 Tour Sp is not from the 70s. It was early 2000, reintroduced w silver/blue colour. It was still made in japan, if i am not mistaken. Even if it was made in TW, it is still much better than current sub $100 yonexes.

    Older 1990s may not have serial codes but yours is a reintro model, with a "Tour" which means it's an improved version of Cab8. In general, any tour version of badminton/tennis rackets are heavier n stronger than regular version.
    Yours is definitely not a fake one. The yy fakes are only the high end models, Cab8 Tour SP was not high-end.
