    Yonex Japan is aware of it and has posted a statement about the problem with an apology.

    http://www.yonex.co.jp/badminton/info/003-cab35/index.html (Japanese only)

    The rackets can be excahnge for the corrected ones. For this to be done, it needs to be sent back to where it was purchased from.

    Yes, the word from Evil Empire is you need to send it back to where you bought it for replacement. Or you can just keep it. It plays the same anyway...

    Cab35 SP shipment arrived in Sunrise Singapore a couple of days ago. Last heard it was still in their warehouse with the racquets being sorted out. They will be delivered to the retail stores in Singapore soon and subsequently regionally.

    Folks in Singapore can start calling their local stores to check whether it is in.

    Another spelling mistake found at the frame. Instead of "GUNMETAL" YY printed it "GUMMETAL".

    Another plus point??

    It was never GUNMETAL it was always GUMMETAL; the technology means a flexible (gummy) snappy titanium.

    I second that, it is in fact "gummetal", all ELASTIC TIs are printed as Gummetal in the JP coded racket.

    Yonex Cab 35 with wrong printing

    The New Carbonex 35 got wrong printing on it:D[​IMG]

    Spelled "BALANCE" to "BLANCE". :D

    And Yonex is going to replace those rackets with a new printed copy racket to those who had bought it already...:p

    If I had bought that, I am absolutely going to keep it to myself....:D Or may be even buy one more of those racket, just to keep it and re-sell it later on..:p
