    A) It's impossible to give a meaningful opinion because you provided no information about your preferences, style of play, etc...

    B) It depends on your own personal preferences, anyway. The two racquets you selected have very different stiffness ratings on their shafts, different weights.

    C) Use the search key - there have been several dozen posts on this same issue in the past several months.

    what a silly question, the cab23 is better of course! lmao.
    to be serious, i believe that the ti10 and swing power are two racquets that are not meant to be compared.
    ti10=very head heavy stiff and powerful.
    swing power=ligther, more maneuverable and less powerful.
    the ti10 has mp etc and the swing power doesnt....
    ti10 costs a hell lot more and the swing power is cheaper.
    usually, the swing powers are easier to hit....but i still love the ti10, i dont recommend it for singles play tho...its kinda slow

    After my small experience with both racquets, I would choose the Ti10 ......for my style of play and strokes. Doesn't anybody find vibration an issue with the Swing Power?

    Default yes Cheung

    I notice vibrations with the SP as well.....
    no idea why it vibrates so much, cos the ti10 has the same diameter shaft

    These two racquets are very different. Once you know your play style, it is not difficult to choose (a more difficult decision is to choose between Ti-10 and Ti SP SX).

    Fyi, Ti-10 cost ~HK$100 less than Ti SP in Hong Kong.

    p.s. Cab 23 is a very powerful racquet for those Carbonex lovers, however it seems that it is not durable. Mine was broken recently, and I've used it for less than 10 times. There was no hard hit for the racquet, and it broke when the string was broken the 1st time - after I cut the string, I found that the upper part of the frame was broken.

    (1) Not so sure for this, may or may not.
    (2) It breaks at 12 o'clock position.

    The racquet was not strung by my favorite stringers with BG85 at 24 lbs (but I don't think it had sufficient lbs), so I'm not sure whether it was because of poor stringing work.

    I was surprised too. Actually, it is not a complete broken down - the racquet is still in one piece, but breaks slightly at 12 o'clock position. I may check with Luxis whether it can still be re-strung.

    It is a SP version Cab 23. Perhaps I had got a unit with poor manufacturing quality. Fyi, I rarely break my racquet - this is the 2nd time (the 1st time was an old Carlton racquet).

    this warping is teasing me.
    shaun, can u describe the warp

    1. is it warped the same way same amout on both left and right side of racket?
    2. is the top half got squashed or expanded
    3. is the bottom half got squashed or expanded
    4. Is it too fat or too thin looking (ie racket width)

    with so much discussion about your racket, can u get a digital image or more (photos) and send it or them to kwun and maybe kwun could post the 'evidence' for all in BC to see. This would be cheaper AND better IMO than sending it to yonex canada for inspection. Remember, there are many here at BC knows more badminton equipment than you think. With this, watch the hit counter. ISP would cringe hearing this
