    Default Yonex Carbonex 10 (c1984)

    Hi any advice on a Yonex Carbonex 10 (c1984) racket?
    Found my old one in the loft and plan to start playing after a 20yr break!
    Is it worth re-stringing and re-gripping or should I buy a new racket? The frame is in perfect condition so seems a shame to bin.
    I remember I loved the feel of the racket and the head was nicely weighted.
    Is there a modern equivelent out there?

    Not many of these around. Carbon fibreglass if I remember correctly.

    This one be careful of stringing at higher tensions. It's not as strong as the carbonex 9 (metal frame), carbonex 20 from the same era.

    thanks, it is a carbon fibre shaft with a T joint and what looks to be a fibre glass coated head (?metal core).
    what tension should it be set at, below 20?

    is it worth re-stringing/gripping or instead making a trip to the shops to buy a new one?

    Hi,
    I have a Carbonex 10 for sale.
    It's a vintage model (1984-1987) that I purchased new in 1989. Played it for a couple of month, then gave up badminton for over 20 years.
    I started playing with colleagues a few months ago, 1h/week, but then I broke a string.
    Since I purchased a new modern racket, so I'm open to offers for that collector Cab10.
    Here are some pics :
