    I know very little about this racquet. It was acquired with an Acro Adjustable from a collector. Search the posts for ACRO to find this also. This is a great looking metal racquet. Happy for more information.

    My guess it would play like a POS but the way it has been made is more like a work of engineering art......so on the wall where it belongs it looks fantastic.

    Hi Jon, yes this is in SK's book page 318. Was just one of those designs that when I saw it knew it would be a great collectable given the extensive design and construction that the makers put into it. As we often say just like a work of art.

    I completely disagree! Not only is this a great looking racket, an accomplishment that is pretty hard to achieve in a standard size metal racket, but it appears to be very well designed. Comparing this racket to the more popular metal rackets of the era like the Wilson T-2000, Slazenger Steel, Head Master or Dunlop twin shaft and mono shaft I'd have to give this an engineering edge if for no other reason than the throat brace which would dramatically improve stability over any of the other rackets mentioned.

    I agree that this rackets looks like an impressive piece of metal design. Surely a nice addition to any metal collection. The proof of the pudding would ofcourse be how well it hits and holds up over time. If this racket was played much, then I think these models would probably have good durability.
