    I like the fact that the recommended stringing range of Prince rackets are much higher than Yonex plus the weighting system helps me a lot on the off-center hits, especially when blocking smashes when you really can't avoid going off-center.

    My Prince TT Warrior is the first racket that i'm actually considering buying more than one of.

    - recommended stringing range specification don't mean that much. I have yet strung yonex or any rackets at or less than the recommended tension.

    - TT is good for off center shot because it has a huge sweet spot, not because of some special weighting system. However, having huge sweet spot does not necessarily means it's all good.


    hope u don't get mad

    A little update since my last posting...

    1st main racquet:
    Yonex CAB 20MS (2U/G4) to be strung at 22lbsM and 24lbsC with BG 80

    2nd main racquet:
    Victor Super Ti-7 (3U?) strung with factory string... approx. 22lbs (I plan to upgrade to BG 80 at 25lbsM and 27lbsC once my CAB 20MS experiment has completed)

    3rd main racquet:
    Victor Phoenix Magan 500 (2U) strung with Ashaway Rally 21... approx. 22lbs (might stick with BG 70PRO at 22lbsM and 24lbsC for the next re-stringing)

    previous 2nd main racquet has been exchanged for the present one due to high-noon disease... too bad it's more expensive than Cab20 MS

    previous 3rd main racquet has been retired.

    Personal note: I am finding that stiffer 2U racquets with higher tension appeals more to me now due to improved swing technique/ timing and alot less smashing. Originally found Victor Phoenix Magan 500 to be too stiff to generate enough power from my swing... not anymore

    All racquets are still regular length ovalheads.

    2nd main racquet:
    Victor Columbia VI (3U/G4) strung @22lbsM and 24lbsC

    *comparable to CAB 20MS in terms of play characteristics (stiffness/balance point/length/headshape)

    3rd main racquet:
    Victor Satellite II (3U/G4) strung @21lbsM and 22lbsC

    Default main rackets:

    2 x MP99

    2 x Armotec 500

    I'm trying these with different strings (BG-68Ti, BG-65Ti and BG-70 Pro) at different tensions to see which ones are the best for me. Gone through 7 sets of strings in 3 months and still experimenting.

    beginning - prince whiplite 700 y shaped racket bg 80 24lbs too flexible no power in any strokes watsoever. broke at 10 o'clock position due to high tension most probably after my fren hit the shuttle with the frame.

    past - mp55 2Ug4 24lbs bg 80 hits like a baseball bat super stiff and can't feel the shuttle. no good for doubles singles ok. drop shots superb net play shitz

    present - cab21sp 2Ug4 24lbs bg 85 the most wonderful racket i have ever used!!! good for singles and doubles. tight netplay, superb drop shots, feels like much more powerful than mp55 it is just so explosive!!! planning to get a few more to keep just in case this one is busted that is if i could still find any of it.

    Any cab 20 tour sp user here? how does it feels compared to cab21sp? intend to get 1 also

    My main racket(s) are Carbonex 8 and 8 SP. I've been using the 8 SP for about 20 yrs now (passed on from my dad), while the other one was a recent gift from a good friend of mine. I tried and broke Cab16 and Ti8. I'm much better with the older rackets anyway
