Of course, the Fort and the Allwood Light were top tier rackets. The Capri series was not a bad 'department store' racket--all were sold pre-strung, I believe. The GLM stands for Graduated Length Method...a reference to a teaching style as well as many different brands of rackets that came in a graduated series of lengths, often 23"-25" and some 'junior' length-usually 26". Some were designated 'pee-wee', 'cadet' and 'junior' to show the different stages of length. Cool start to your collection. I'm afraid I have a couple dozen woods that are of little personal interest and will remain in a box instead of on display. Seems it is easy to find a 'lot' of rackets that include only one of interest and 2, 3 or more that aren't very exciting.
