    It brings my cab20 collection to 11. The purple one and SP version has gone to my daughter's bag so she can experience the classics whilst learning badminton. My children will probably be the last persons on earth to learn with these classics.
    cheung, can i ask if the middle one, the purple one, is it the original cab 20? i.e. the first one ever released?

    came into my possession today, and have given it to my dad (in his sixties), whom prefers the old school racquets.. none of the modern racquets that i had was "acceptable" by his preferences, except for the recent i-slash

















    original leather grip was still on, but destroyed by an old towel grip's doublesided tape that went over it.. removed the grip and soaked it in light soapy water.. hopefully the doubleside tape residue falls off and it can be salvaged..

    anyone knows what was the multicolored string?

    Looks in very good condition.

    Haven't seen that string since the 80's. Never knew the name of it though.

    The GOSEN HY-SHEEP reminds me to my primary school days. It was good on the aluminum Cab 8. On a total graphite racket it simply did not feel as good. At least on my first non t-joint racket (RSL 2000).

    I'm a fan of the carbonex series. I'm using cab 20 sp 3u, cab 20 ti power and just purchased a cab 8000 ti. My fav is cab 20 sp strung with Ashaway Microlegend @ 27lbs. Love the 'mettalic' feel from the string. Simply addictive. Previously it was strung with Ashaway Durakill 66 but it felt like my RSL 2000 with GOSEN HY-SHEEP.... numb and dead...

    Just gossiping last night and I heard one HK shop is selling a carbonex 20 for HKD4000, roughly USD500....the racquet was supposedly used by Xia Xuan Ze.

    Hmmm...
