    I picked up a Fuchs racket, this thing has 22 mains and 32 crosses. Still has original strings and has a shape of a fox stenciled in them. Must have been made in Germany, has German writing on the side. I will try to post pics tomorrow. Incredibly thin beam and hits quite nice. Anyone have any idea how old this thing is? Google search got me zero.

    Fuchs is German for Fox (although there are inherent dangers in mispronouncing it!) I wonder if it has anything to do with the old Fox frames that used to be on the market.

    I recognize the "Fuchs" name as a current manufacturer of high-end guitar amplifiers.
