Cab-10 Tour alternative?
I've been using a Carbonex 10 Tour for several years now, and I'm very happy with it. Very manouverable and good control. BG-65 string.
My "backup" (ex primary) is a Ti-5 - one of the original ones - which I now despise. It has more power, but I find it extremely lacking in feel and precision, especially when defending. Like playing with a wooden pole. When the strings break on my cab10 I am really in trouble
Prior to this I had a Ti-6 Long (until someone whacked it), but thats so long ago and my play has changed so much since then that I can't really comment on it.
I'm looking for some recommendations on a backup / second racquet. I have recently tried a victor Thunder 1114 (didn't like the feel of this) and a Yonex 97VF (too flexible, and I lacked power with it).
- I'm a borderline B/C level player, depending on the weather
- I am not a power player, and almost exclusively play doubles.
- I want something with similar control to the cab-10T, but wouldn't mind trying something a *little* more power oriented. Key is not to sacrifice manouverability significantly.
- I suspect I should stay with an oval head shape rather than switching back and forwards (maybe this is one reason I didn't get on with the 97VF?).

- If you're looking for a racquet with More power, as you say, you might just want to try another string, reading the tension and string threads on this forum (if you do a search) might be of interest to you.
Other than that, in terms of racquets, if you want to keep the head-light balance If that's what the Cab-10 Tour also Is, then there's the rather expensive Nano speed series from Yonex, or their Carbonex 30 MS I believe is head-light, and classic head shape.
I'm guessing the old Cab 10 was 2U aswell? so a 3U even balance racquet may provide more power, without sacrifising the manouverability because it's lighter. (the Cab 30 MS is 3U, in most places, I think there's a 2U version of it available, read the review section on this racquet if you wish.)
Since I don't actually know anything about that specific racquet, the Cab 10 Tour, I can't really comment much other than what I've already said.
