    Today I was really happy i had a spare racquet. My arm felt tired and weak and I was glad to leave my stiffer racquets in the bag and whip around my flexi Kason Carvel

    Now, that is a good reason and excuse ... preferably before 21st Dec 2012, just in case, there is REALLY AN END OF THE WORLD, at least, you will have your DREAM RACQUET in hand when going to the badminton court in Heaven/Hell ...

    What! I thought it was 12/12/12. What's so special about the 21? Oh my, 21 is the exact REVERSE of 12! Aaaaaah~ I'm freaking out!

    Curious to try out racquets with different characteristics. And to try them out seriously, we'll have to buy them.

    It's not just the reverse of 12, but according to the Mayans some interpreted as the end of the world!

    Forget the Mayans, the day Yonex stops producing CAB20, that will be THE END OF THE WORLD (of badminton) as far as I am concerned !!

    And may I suggest you have your "first" Cab20sp all strung up ASAP and play a game or two while in HK, and then when you are HOOKED, quickly go back to the shop and buy a few more BEFORE YOU LEAVE HK ... since it is so hard to find them in North America ...

    that is true, but i do enjoy the bit of head heaviness so i might even just use my cab21

    i do have friends that play in a badminton club in HK, but from what i was told even their crappy players kicks butt compared to me, so i might not get a chance to keep a long rally going i'll be there for two weeks, so hopefully i'll find time to play at least a few games

    it's good to have a backup so you don't get yourself hustling to buy a new racket.so if you occasionally break your "primary" racket you can use your "secondary" racket instead,and then buy another racket if you have money.

    Hello Sports fans, I just bought a Black Knight Photon PCV XL for Christmas from canuck sports and I had some questions I hope you guys could answer. 1. Why is the racquet prestrung when it is supposed to be unstrung? 2. Does anyone know what string it would be strung with eg (Ashaway)? 3. Does anyone know what the the prestrung manufacturers tension is set at? 4. Finally is the racquet a fake? it says made in Taiwan, I had a black knight feather XL a couple of years ago and it said made in Canada.

    Old rackets bring back memories! That's why!
