    Does anyone have any specs on this frame? i found it at a yard sale for 50 cents, and the look of it just prompted me to buy it (why not)

    but it's unstrung, and it has no bumber guard. it's pretty heavy, seems easily over 12 ounces, and it's definitely really flexible; if you could tell me some specs on this, i'd appreciate it.

    i'll try to get some pictures up soon.

    There were no such things as bumper guards when they made this frame...or grommets. :)

    i had a few of those in the late 70s. was one of the first graphite rackets i think.. tony trabert c-6 , yamaha yfg and durafiber graphite were soem of the others early carbon frames.. i have them stashed away somewhere.. recall they cracked often in the wedge between the shaft and the head area. had quite a lot of power compared to the woodies back then..:)

    Do a search... I've posted a number of things about this racquet.

    BTW, it's an Aldila Cannon... Aldila is the company and they are still in business.

    That thing sold for $200 new - so 50 cents is a pretty good deal. Ha!

    If I get a chance I'll dig mine out and take pics of it.
