    hi, i recently got a racquet that i am sure is a st. vincent GYQ on cap.
    this one has a sticker for the recommended tension of 60-70lbs. and no "r' on the butt cap besides the 'W' also it has no bumper guard. i am guessing it is one of the earliest models perhaps even made in chicago?
    does anyone have any insights into this frame? thanks!!!!!!!:) :)

    well i did read this:

    There was a factory shell that had been originally built to produce Maidenform bras but Wilson ended up buying it in 1982 to finish and assemble raw frames produced in our Chicago factory

    so maybe the final assy. was done in st. vincent and they sent the partially completed frames there? i dont know.
