I don't have the 30MS but the 3U 35 which is my main racket. I would say if you are a smash lover, 35 is not for you. Not being a power type of player, I enjoy rally more than smashing and for these, I like the 35. But when I was having a bad hair day and all shots seem wrong, I would just use my grand-old 2U Widebody30 which is stiffer and heavier headed for that extra help on power w/o me pushing too hard.

Noted. CAB £0 MS is like an offensive racquet while Cab 35 is more of a defensive type, what you were saying, yeah? Thnx.

I don't perceive offensive or defensive based on smashing power. Often the points are win based on the overall skill and tactic of the player. Some like to smash a lot, some not, and they choose their rackets based on their preference.

ok. I think I need to give this thing another try. nobody wants it in buy/sell thread. I play mostly double. my go to racket depends on my play day 'form' and the opponent. if im in good shape on the play day and against fast and offensive opponent, I will go to 2u ns9900. if I feel lazy and opponent very defensive I will opt for at900p. I can still play with cab9 gold, jus to note that the oval shape may not be the prob. my modern rackets are strung ard 25-26lbs and the cab9 ard 22lbs. need advice and tip from ppl who feel this racket worth its value on the string setup and best play style to use this with.

Really frustrated. I gave this 'masterpiece' another try yesterday. Worried that I would unfairly judge it, I brought along my antic first love Cab9 gold for benchmarking. With them, I brought along a modern racket, Arcs8dx.
The rackets spec & setup;
Arcs8dx BG85 25lbs 3u g5 Replacement grip
Cab35 BG85 26lbs 3u g5 Replacement grip
Cab9 Gold Prospeed 23lbs 2u g4 Over grip
All original grips removed. And strings loosen a fair bit from the initial indicated tension.
How did they fare? I'm no good in doing reviewing so i will just summarise them in a comparison.
Smash Arc8dx > Cab35 > Cab9
Clear Arc8dx > Cab9 > Cab35
Defense Cab9 > Arc8dx > Cab35
Drive Cab9 > Arc8dx > Cab35
Intercept Cab9 > Arc8dx > Cab35
Netting Cab9 = Arc8dx > Cab35
Agility Cab35 > Cab9 > Arcs8dx (probably due Cab35 being head lightest but it does translate into best defense)
Accuracy Arcs8dx > Cab35 > Cab9
To me, for a serious match i will go for cab9 over cab35, any day. Maybe due to the reason it was my longest main go to racket longest sometime ago. Someone who think Cab35 is a decent racket, pls share your view and racket setup.

I think Cab 35 is quite nice although I do agree that it's a bit lacking in the power departmentIt has that great solid feel despite being slightly head lightMine is 3U G5 with BG66U at 26lbs
