    Can you take a photo of the Cab15SP for me? That's the 2 piece racket right? I used to own one but lost it and nobody seem to know about the racket.

    Wow... that was a rare one!!! 1985 Both of those are already broken xD... (Destroyed by my dad round 95 and another one by myself around 2000's... Replaced by another Cab 8 xD... Which last till now

    Actually lately giving my cab8 more weight, use them for wrist training xD... Can't use the squash or tennis racket (weak arm lol xD... But fast enough to pack some power)

    Destricto Ense,

    It was used by the no.1 seeded indonesian lady, Susi Susanti. During that time, she was dominating every tournaments held. 2nd seeded was Huang Hua of China i believe.

    It has a nice colour and bag too i think ...I'll get post pics once im done with my final exams hehehe

    You can look at other brands such as SOTX and RSL.. The RSL Millenium Diamond X2 Gold 'felt' amazing when I just held it.. The price would definitely be lower than any of the higher-end Yonex racquets, and it's very powerful according to many people. Its maneuverability, obviously better than the old Cab8.

    Oh, how tempting!
    Now when it comes to pricing and rating, thats subjective.

    Thanks all.

    K4mu1 - I will certainly be hanging on to my Cab8. It is a legendary racquet as you say
    Becareful about fake/clones : D
    But if you haven't tried yet...try an Armortec, i moved from ISO to AT500 and fell in love

    Oh yeah!! All black with gold writings although my failing memory didn't turn up what they say except something about power and control!! I suspect it's unbreakable.

    Thanks man, I really appreciate that.

    The gold one as in the gold coloured frame? That should apply to all 2-piece Cab8's.

    IIRC, the earlier productions, the Cab8 comes in 3 colours (cone and T-Joint). They are red, green and blue. These are U rackets. The later productions Cab8s' are 2U and comes in red and blue. I think the latter blue is deeper than the earlier ones. I still have the blue 2U Cab8.

    In recent years, I believe I've seen Cab8's is produced as a 1-piece racket with variations like Ti and stuff. Someone has to fill in this gap.
