    Thanks for your advise. Now I know I need a stiffer racket. I have been trying to figure out why I don't feel the same when playing my Carbon Pro and Cab15.

    Hi all, to be honest, i prefer iso frame racket more personally. I was using MP28 before and this racket got me into iso frame. however, i am using a victor racket now and its oval frame... which is strange... ha but i find it is fine for me to play with this oval frame racket at the mean time. so i vote for oval frame. In addition, i have another Carlton powerblade in my racket bag as i can not get myself used to this racket at the moment coz it needs me to be better before i can use it. so, i will train with my victor now and hopefully i will get better soon...

    I have a CAB30MS, OVAL ALL THE WAY. I just like the solid feeling it provides; my MP77 doesn't me give that feel.

    I hope YONEX continues the CAB line with something like a CAB40MS or something HAHA. They should try to incorporate the new technologies into the CAB series, tht would be awesome.

    I'd like to see a Cab 30 TI, or even a Cab 30 MSTI.

    Default Try using ovals

    Those who voted for iso but have not tried using and getting adjusted to ovals are missing a lot. There is a distinct solid feeling when you hit the sweet spot of an oval racket that you don't experience with an iso.
    True, the sweet spot is smaller but it's only by a fraction so it's easy to adjust to it.... no big deal.

    So my vote's clearly oval.

    Wink Yep

    Yep. ISO is for me too. I play for my school in the states and ISO was really good. The oval just doesn't suit me.

    i have used both type of rackrts and i think when using the oval rackets, the shots are more powerful then Iso rackets when I hit on exact sweet spot. on the other hand, Iso rackets have a larger sweet spot, making it easier to hit a higher quilty shoots. I personlly like playing with a iso racket may because my swing is not that good.

    I love oval. Actually, I can only use oval at this moment. Seems the ISO just not designed for me...

    This is just my opinion. Racquets is like mistress and wife. ISO is just like mistress, you always want a newer and yonger one. Oval is like wife, sometime it nag a little. Sometime not enough power, sometime sweet spot is too small. However, at the end, you always come back to your true love (oval) because it just feel right and you want to spend the rest of your live with.

    ps. I think I took the wrong med again this morning. (better not Prozac)
