I really wanted one in high school, couldn't afford it, ended up with a Wilson Advantage instead, but I would love to see a picture of one if anyone has one.

The Duke was their entry level racquet. The Advantage was a much better racquet. I have a pretty good Davis collection and have never felt the need to buy a Duke

What Davis racquets do you have, mrw? They're one of my favourites.

I played the Davis Duke in high school, '77-'80. I broke all 3 of them on high volleys. It was a block of wood with an aluminum overlay. Wasn't laminated like every other wood racquet. The Advantage was a much better racquet. Our #1 player used them. But they cost $60 and I got the Duke for $40. Alot of hours work at $2.80 min wage. Old memories.
I found one several years ago. It's not playable. I keep it to show my kids what I started with.
