finally, after many many long long years, (13 years to be exact!) i will be a proud owner of the cab21 again. i just ordered 3 of them and should arrive next week or the week after in my hands. i cannot wait, this is like meeting old friend again. the cab21 is very special to me. i started using it when i was in secondary school. only used it for one year but it was one of the most enjoyable badminton years.
i have order 3 of them, two will be with bg85. one of them will be with bg66, just like the good old days.
Wow, talk about bringing an old thread back to life! I have a Cab21. It's a very special racket since it's passed through a lot of people to me. I just hope I don't break it in a clash or something stupid. It's really old and looks worn out, but it still plays better than most rackets I've used. Cab21-4-lyfe!
Just got a cab 21sp (2u G5) a few weeks ago. It's got a red design (neither blue nor purple) and the logo on the cap is black with gold YY's. Based on the serial number, the racket was manufactured in May 2005.
I had it strung with BG 68Ti at 24X26lbs and have been playing with it for about 3 weeks.
Before the cab 21 sp, I've been using the Ti10, so it took me about a week before I got used to its weight and length. Since then, I've fallen in love with the cab 21. It's not as powerful as the Ti10, but powerful enough to get the job done. In terms of control, I think this is where it has the edge over the Ti10, it's faster and easier to maneuver.
Overall, I would rate the new cab 21sp as an excellent racket that doesn't cost as much as the nano and armortech types.
