That is one of the smartest statements I have read on this board. Did you know during the wood era Dunlop made the Maxply Fort from 1933 to 1983. That is 50 years of the same racquet. Now it of course evolved and was refined but the same basic racquet. Wilson made the Jack Kramer Autograph from 1948 to 1983. That is 35 years of the same racquet. What is going on AJK1 is exactly as you describe.
