got it for 220.
have only positive things to say about it.
i'm glad gosen is focussed on creating more and more novel racquets that some of them appear to be quite a breakthrough in feel

do you mean the cab22 is stiffer to the custom v? or stiffer compared to shiden? or both?
* totally off topic but do you by chance know the difference between cab 20 tour and the newer cab 20 that you can still find in some places? there is one in a store by me and wonder if i should snatch it up just in case.

The cab 20 power is even stiffer than the type V even though the type V is classified as 'stiff'.
I do not have a shiden to compare.
I would not buy the newer cab20 if you want to have the same stiffness as a cab 20 tour.

I have the shiden. The spec on the racket that you post look like the same as the shiden. Is this racket use M40 carbon?

where did you get your type V and how much is it?

in singapore... $210 with string and grip.
word of advice: try to put on the damper before re-string ( it will improve the smash power ).. the additional grommets and damper, please keep it...
if you like your racket to be fast with defence and manoveurity... then don't put the damper..

Could you guys share where you got your gosen racket from in Singapore? I hardly see any shop selling them here. Thanks.

Just had a go with this racket last week.
I particularly love the swing feeling, the 'shark skin' material on 4 & 8 o'clock makes the stroke smoother and produces a high pitch sound.
I was also surprised with sweet spot of this racket, although the frame is smaller than the normal isometric rackets, the sweet spot size is kinda similar. And the power generated by Type V in smashing is great.
The shaft is med-stiff (+2), which doesn't require an extreme wrist power in order to maneuver it.
(One drawback for the demo type V was the tension was set too low, it feels like 21 or 22 pounds. Really cannot test out the true potential of the racket.
