Not just of an era - the Maxply Fort one of if not the greatest frames of all time......thing didn't change much in over 50yrs of production.

Didn't ever see any "head shots" of players on a Fort? Thought that was the beauty of Dunlop not doing that......everybody used it or at least at one time used it.........big reason Laver went to Chemold was of course for the $$$$$ and that Dunlop wouldn't give him an autograph version of the Fort.
