I would rank Howard Head's Prince as the start of the revolution in frames. Both metal and early carbon fibers in small headed frames did not radically change the game, few could hit like Jimmy with metal and standard size fiber frames were not game changers. The Profile and the rest of the wide bodies, led to the current crop of frames. Poly to harness the power brings us to O-Ports, which I see as a refinement in the ongoing design of areo frames.
