CAB20ms, CAB30ms and TI-10. I Need Help!!!!!!!!!!
Hi i'm andy and i need a good decent raquet to replace my Ti-8 (because i has been wif me for quite a while and it has loads of paint tht came off and there is also a lil crack on the shaft of the frame ), i play 4~5 times a week and around 1~2 hours sessions and i'm 175cm tall and a defensive player either singles or doubles i need a good control racquet and will do some damage whn i'm smashing. i'm more kind of looking at the CAB series like CAB-20 ,CAB20ms, CAB-30ms, Ti or MP series i need a good advice from experts guys, if any one can help me please tell me why tht raquet and the string tht is most prefered on the raquet and also with a the suitable tension and if its a 2U or 3U or 4U and the suitable grip size
One last question What is the difference among the CAB series like among the racquets CAB-(20~25) is it the more the beta or is there a big difference?
Has anyone tried between CAB20ms, CAB30ms and TI-10 and which one do you like the best
Thanks alot experts hehe

I would recommend the Cab-20 to you since you are looking for a all-around racquets. (Ti and MP racquets are also good in performance, but sometimes it's easy to break them. Cabs just last longer and more stable and solid.)
Also, the cost of the Cab racquet is a lot cheaper than the Ti or MP racquets.
Since your Ti-8 has lots of chips and wears on the frame, I wouldn't recommend you any MP or Ti racquets because you obviously need something that is durable.
You can try, Cab-20 in 2U, with BG-65 at 22 pounds. Then you can adjust to different strings and different tensions later. BG-65 is more like a base in world of strings.
The differences between Cab 20~25 is the style and weight distributions. Cab-20 is the base racquet among them. Some Cabs are already discountinued, so it would be hard to get them.

I forgot to mention the grip size
This will depend on how big your hands are. Just buy some overgrips and work on the handle, you should be able to find the right size.

The Muscle frame gives you better tensioning on stringing. Other than that, I haven't notice any other major differences.
I visit stores around the NTU and Shi-Lin night market usually, and it's easy to find those stores once you are in the area. They all have big signs.
Overgrips varies. I am using Yonex Super Grap now (A440).

Personally, I tried cab20ms (2U) and cab30ms. Overall, both are amazing all around racket. The only problem with cab20ms is i got 2u instead of 3u, which is a bit too heavy for me. Currently using cab30ms, and I think it should fit for ur description, good power, amazing control.

2. If u looking for responsive sound, then the string could not be too thick. Therefore, BG66, BG85 might be good choices. However, the major drawback for thin string is the durability.
3. As for yonex, there's only special partterns for really old models (Aetous series) or really new one (AT800). Most of the cab, Ti, MP, etc follow standard 22*22 pattern.

cab30ms, i use primarily for doubles. its light and manuverable. in my opinion, it is somewhat flexable, especailly on a smash, but still provides enough power overall. control on the this racket is pretty good because i can hit it where i want to with ease.
cab20 i didnt like very much. peticularly because it felt really really heavy and i couldn't generate much power with it. but thats just me. you might like it.

With my limited experience, if u really ask me to rank the 3 rackets in order from offensive down to defensive, I will say, cab20ms is more offensive (stiff shaft, higher potential to generate power, if u can utlized it), cab20 should be all around, and cab30ms is a bit more toward defensive (very quick and clear swings).

i think i'm more of a defensive player and i need extremely accurate clears and placement smashes (more of a smash but not so much power and jst place it on the side lines ) and i also need a faster swing
which is more suitable

As Dill pointed out, Cab 21 minus Cab 20 ... Cab 1.
So the difference is about a Cab ... more or less.

You need to do a search before you post those questions which have been discussed before. I believe we have talked enough about Cab20 and 21
