Is it possible that we are actually looking at a factory job? Perhaps Snauwaert figured that by replacing the tedious hand-cutting, tying and gluing of those tiny tubes with a single molded strip, they could overcome the most significant drawback of this innovation, and mass produce spaghetti-strung racquets at an affordable price? If so, they must have come up with this idea right as the spaghettis were being banned, nipping the whole enterprise in the bud.

This could have been a way to avoid patent issues with Werner Fischer but by the time it was ready for mass production it would have been taken of the market because of the ban,(The Jan Kodes Autograph was made between 1976 and 1978 ).
That's probably why it fetched such a high price, it was most likely a proto type.
