    At least the seller admits that it's fragile ;) . Only saw a couple back in the '70s and they were broken at the top of the neck...very weak point. Great display piece, however. I would bet against its sale at that starting price.

    I just found another auction for a lot of six racquets including a Dunlop Monoshaft and a Pro Am, but the pics aren't good, and I don't want to go back and forth with the seller to find out stuff. I would really like a Pro Am, though.

    Seems like I saw that gruppo a couple weeks ago when I bought the Fischer 'collection'. The Dunlop monoshaft is quite unusual...a real beast. I cut down the handle for a lady who just loved that racket. It hurt MY arm just to swing it! :)

    The Pro Am I have (thanks again to Don T) is pretty darned cool...especially when you consider the 'engineering' of most of the metal rackets back then.
