(There's a sticker on the unmodified, NOS one that simply is marked, "Rodney.")

Lovely frames, perfect head size (88 square inches; looks larger as it is wider - closer to round - than most elliptical 90's), great quality. The original Wimbledon calfskin grips (in massive size 5) are Wimbledon-branded, but appear to be the same as the best Pro Kennex grips used concurrently - no surprise there since these Wimbledon frames were openly made by Kunnan, and marked as such.

I'm taking them for a hit tonight; can file a report if there is any interest.
please do share. i've got a wimbledon graphite in my collection that i've been meaning to string up and take out for a hit.
