    Default Original? or Fake? hmm......

    I have 2 Cab 20 Originals. 1 i have no doubt is original, it has the old logo, including the shiny Yonex Genuine sticker on the cone.

    It has a label saying 2U-G5. This racket was bought a Sportslink here in Singapore.

    However my other Cab 20 Original has a new yonex logo and doesn't have the Yonex Genuine sticker. However it has an engraved serial number there instead. The sticker on the opposite side is a newer sticker...... telling the grip size as well as the stringing tension recommendation.

    Could this be a new Cab 20 Original?? A newer batch? Prehaps Yonex did make a final batch of new Cab 20 Originals recently......

    Or maybe its fake??

    does the cab20 in question has purple colorings, while the old one is either red or blue?

    the newer cab20 productions as you said, has the new Yonex logo, but the same engraved serial number instead of the painted, etched serial number of the other models, it also has the recommended tension sticker as well.

    Byro,

    The racket that Hong used in The final agst Gopi is the new model Cab 20. Rather new symbol as i watched the Butt cap!

    so dont worry. It is indeed Orginal.

    I visited the Yonex website and apparently they are still manufacturing the Cab 20 Originals.
    However the cosmetics looks slightly different!

    see http://www.yonex.co.jp/badminton/products/racket/cab20.html

    Is this the one you have?

    If you look for Luxis website http://www.luxissportnet.com/main.html
    and search for Cab 20 JP version, you will also see that they show the Cab 20 Original in slightly different cosmetics.

    This looks identical to the one in the Yonex website but diiferent from the Cab 20s that I'm used to seeing.

    Does this mean that Yonex is manufacturing "new" Cab 20 Originals in slightly different cosmetics?
