Great racquet, good blend of control and power. Had an anatomical grip - loved it as i had a 2hbh

The butt on this was shaped the same as the revolutive series (had a few of them too). They had screw in weights that allowed you to change the balance of the racquet.
Yes indeed, a very beautiful racket for many reasons. These countered or bottle shaped handles were popular for the early 1900s wood racquets and called bulbous handles. Check out the pair in the middle of the below combo picture also showing some fish tail and fan tail handle rackets.
