The later model was a beaut. With all the dozens of Maxplys I sold, I never owned one. In the Southeast US, Slazenger had a bit of snob-appeal since it was not widely distributed. That Professional with Babolat AFV @ 62# was sweet! That was the last wood racket I used before going with Rossi then Dunlop as a sales rep.
