    Try CAB30MS. Silentheart can probably get you one for a good price.

    CAB30MS is the best oval racket you can get.

    What's the general opinion of the oval Carlton Fireblade Tour? There is an iso version and an oval version. The latter being used by mixed doubles world champion, Nathan Robertson.

    I think one of the GB players, Andrew? uses the Fireblade Elite in the Olympic. Yes, Robertson uses the Carlton Fireblade Tour.

    Andrew smith uses an oval fireblade elite. I watched the game. Really close to getting wiped out due to his nervous plays.

    I've tried this racket recently, it's good for singles, not too head heavy, quite stiff.

    What I feel is, the fireblade elite is quite light (84grams) with a balance point around 297mm (with grip and string), not quite head heavy compared with some really head heavy ones from yonex.

    quite stiff, yet not sure how this compares with yonex at700, feels more or less equal. I'm not sure because these rackets have different strings and tensions.

    This is all i know, I've never seen a cab30, you'll have to compare it yourself.
