The first version of the Graphite Pro WB-210 was both grommetless and bumperless, and, even by today's standards, quite aerodynamic. It was designed by Warren Bosworth with a ten-sided shape (in typical Bosworth theory) to try to equalize string lengths as much as possible.

The later WB-210 (with grommet and bumper, and a boxier cross section) lives on in the custom frames made today by Bosworth, and used by a few pros (including Ivan lendl).
