Found this at the local thrift store. Anyone have any info on it? It's a pretty weird shape and says oversize. Thanks

The color is odd too.

It looks like one of those old Hammers. Very odd. Is it head-heavy? Since it might be a precursor to the Sledge Hammer(or Outer Limits or whatever).

It seems to be even balance or maybe 1 point head heavy.

Not sure what the headsize is. Looks like 110. It is very similar to some of the hammer rackets.

Not all old racquets can be considered classics. Save you money. Leave the racquets to kids. Some of the $2.99-6.99 racquets are worth nothin'. :)

I don't feel so guilty spending my money there because they donate most of the money to charity. I'm buying for a good cause. :)

It looks like an overgrown racquetball racket!

No, those were directed towards "recreational" players. In the early 2000's, if I'm not mistaken.
Around these parts, you see those mostly in the hands of the above-60-hit-it-right-to-me-please-sunday-morning-doubles club players.

I enjoy shopping at thrift stores .. they have some real good stuffs for cheap.. a lots of goods that are unused such as shirts, shoes and pants.
