hello, well, im using a cab20ms. currently for 2 years now, my previous racket was a ti-10, prefers cab20ms over ti-77(new) as i prefer it heavy. Well, i would say cab20 would be a harder racket to use compared to isometric as it has a oval shape which gives a smaller sweetspot but higher accuracy and more precise shots. Great for netplay able to do crosscourt and trickshots more accurately, slicing in the sweetspot also makes it a killer, however i find that i'm not able to produce a winning smash with this racket rather doing a fast drop better. Also a very hardy racket, very strong and durable but trust me, takes months before u can really understand this racket, but once you're able to get the feel of it, it just feels very effortless to hit any shot. But then again, please don't blame your rackiet fully should u encounter any bad day, because player's skill is what counts the most. Hope ive been of help to you.

Warmly greet the new fan of oval - head racket! I have never used the CAB20MS, but ever played with a CAB 30 MS from 3 months.I think that both them basically are similar, so that, you have to lost time for familiarize yourself with the racket. I am sure that, with its remarkable particular trait, it will bring pleasantness to you. Good luck!

CAB20MS is a pretty decent all round racquet. It's stiff but not so stiff as to impair a good clear. Frame durability is pretty good as I have quite a few minor clashes and it's still going strong despite being strung at 26X28lbs. It's a good investment once you have moved past beginner and into intermediate skill area. However, it's definitely not a good racquet for beginners. It gets pretty discouraging as the sweetspot is smaller and mis-hits will be frequent. The upside of it is that feedback an oval frame provides will improve your shot-making alot faster.

I have a Cab20MS myself and I am useing 50% of time while using other racquests the other 50%. It has a muscule Power frame to give you more power then the old Cab20. It also keeps the string longer. It is a very good racquet for a double or all around player. If you do consider play single, I will go for a Cab23 which has stiffer shaft or Cab30MS for even stiffer. Be aware that Cab30MS is a long racquet. I will recommand Cab20ms with BG85 for added power. BG85 cost a little more and last shorter to BG65.

The strings will move more when you slice it, focus on hitting it dead on and the problem will subside. It's really irritating but it's just growing pain.

This usually happens when you are stringing your racquet at low tension (lower than 19), when you are using string that tends to slip, when you are hittign too hard or a combination of them.

Oo... I think mine shifted a little since the first week too...
It's BG80 at 23lb. At first I saw in small white letters "yonex bg80" in the middle twice, and now I see it three times in a shifted position...
Does that mean my string shifted?
Is that a bad thing?
