    With the current trend of re-making some of the old classics, can anyone remember playing with these? I bought one sometime in the late 80's and played with it for years (I still have it locked away in an upstairs cupboard).

    Standard length, 118" head size, 19mm straight beam, throat stabilizer and a brownish/bronze color. Very flexible, whippy frame with a massive sweet spot that was beautiful to play with. Low on power, but I could put the ball anywhere on court with quite an amount of topspin if required.

    I have a feeling that Martina Navratalova used one for a time and would be interested if any of you remember this stick as fondly as I do. The other thing is that you never developed arm/elbow problems with frames like these.
