    First time seeing an incorrect spelling on badminton rackets...well, this could be used as a way to identify "fake" Yonex rackets which may spell correctly...

    Well, It does seems like they have done it, :p

    Its not like the first time in history when the japaneese companies gets the "engrish" :D wrong...

    In general I think YY has been so succesful in marketing that people do not realize they are not THAT different from other racket makers, for example in CH, TW etc..

    Pls advise if the shaft of Cab 35 is slim (7mm as Cab 21) or of standard thickness (7.5mm as Cab 20). Tks a lot.

    As far as I can tell it reads like 7.5mm to me with a measuring tape.

    Tks a lot, so the shaft thickness of the new Cab 35 should be the same as that of Cab 20.

    It would be great if the shaft thickness of Cab 35 is slim 7mm, as the same as that of Cab 21, just my slight opinion.

    The red stripes on the frame of the ArcSaber Z-Slash looks similar to the Cab35.

    It means both the entire shaft and frame are made of carbon(graphite)!

    but i think i'm just being silly...:p

    I believe this is old marketing: in the old days when we have the first edition of Carbonex 8 with separate shafts and frames, having a "Totally Integrated Graphite Structure" is quite something. Both the shaft and the frame are made with graphite and in one solid continuous piece.

    Nowadays, every racquet from every brand is made this way. Kind of superfluous to still use this wording, unless they have nothing better to put in the same area...

    Hmm , so has anyone else got a Carbonex 35?

    I want to see if this "mistake" has been made throughout all the rackets?

    darn....... 10mm short. because of this 10mm, i will loose the matches. :mad:
    can we modify it to 675mm or write-in to yonex and ask them to retrieve back these wrongly-designed racket. also mis-spelled too. :p
    Even Blance. this is new specification introduce by yonex? :rolleyes:

    Ordered the Cab35 from Shuttle-House last Wednesday and I got it in my hand this morning! That's some impressive shipping time considering it's a journey from Japan to UK. I can confirm that it's still spelled as "blance".
