    The green dot sticker is to identified my racquets from the rest, when I am having it restrung. Back then, carb20 was so popular that the shop where I had mine restrung literally have about 20+ when I dropped off mine. The shop use to have name-stickers...but that is so "norm" :D :D

    As for the gold logo...that is original. It was only the later batch when yonex have the white logo against the green for the cab20. Yonex did have the familar white/green way before the gold/black. My cab7 & cab8 have the white/green, they are much "older" than my cab20

    Paint job..??? :confused: ....I'll leave it to the Picassos.. like vincenterika :D :D

    So good to see the old symbol Cab 20's and 3 of them. Its indeed a feast. Its been atleast 5 years or so since i last saw a Orange/red cab 20. They went out of production a long long long while back and among all the cab20's i felt the orange one was the best.

    As a favour, pls never ever sell it.

    I've tried many of the newest and latest racquets, and I have come full circle. It seems like my heart always comes back to the cab20. And at $150Cdn, it's a great bargain! It's the perfect replacement for my wrecked MP99, and complements my existing 2003 cab20. The best part, no worries about fakes! :D

    cab20ms

    i've got 2 cab20ms as my main weapons. i warm up and play with a 2U and move onto a 3U if my arm feels tired late in the session. however, this doesn't happen often and i prefer the 2U over the 3U. see my review here:

    http://www.badmintoncentral.com/reviews/showproduct.php?product=9&sort=7&cat=47&page=1

    and as a followup - this is one great racquet. not as much power as others but close enough not to matter too much.

    Hi! I'm planning to have a new racket and I wanted to have a Yonex Carbonex 20 racket. Im a intermidiate player who loves smashing and dropping at the same time.

    My question is, is it advisable to buy a Carbonex 20 nowadays that there are a lot of new technology in rackets and it might be advantageous to buy it than Yonex "old" Carbonex 20 series?

    nad oh by the way there are to many Carbonex 20 series and i'm planning to have the special edition the all black one. Is that suited for my style or the muscle or long?

    Thanks a lot and more POWER!

    Jeff

    I found a CAB 20 SP in a shop near my area but it's 3U... I wonder is it better to get the 2U version or 3U version? I play doubles all the time with many placement shots and smashing hard when necessary. TQ
