    Can't find a brand new replacement for my CAB20. Got myself couple of AT900T. So ISO for me for now.

    At the same tension ovals have a more crispy feel. Depending on the beam of the tip, an oval can have more punch, not from the materials in the racquet but something else, which I will not share. Isos are more forgiving with off centre hits.

    Yes, the best shots off an oval are better than the best shots off an iso, which feel hollow in comparison, but Isos won't kill you if you screw up.

    hi everyone,
    some ppl like oval, some ppl like iso. depending on individual preferences. oval = older technology, some ppl do like the feel when hitting birdie... as for iso = newer technology, more powerful, more accuracy... that is why more new model comes up with iso compare oval. for oval, yonex mostly has it, coz they wanna maintain all the levels of playing....

    Completely agree, so why don't we all just work on our consistency and see if ovals work better afterward?

    i used to have cab rackets but for more consistent returns i prefer the iso ive noticed with oval rackets they generate more power if you hit it right in the small sweet spot but with iso rackets it has lesser power but more consistent returns.

    Iso, I've had and used both and the Iso's are far better when comparing the size of the sweetspot.

    sounds like a balance to me. like balancing games. the g36e gun (automatic machine gun) can shoot really fast but less damage. the semi automatic sniper rifle has more power, but very slow.

    oval: a bit more power and feel, less consistant shots

    isometric:a bit less power and feel, more consistant shots

    but if you are good enough, you should be hitting the sweetspot dead on most of the time, id rather have an oval.

    can't wait to purchase the cab30 *drools*

    more ovaltine plzzz...

    I've played with ovals since elementry school, won't say i hate them. but when i first got an iso i have fall in love with them. I think i am going to stay with Isos.
