Did ArtherAshe even play tennis in 1969. I know I did not.
I also know I used Smiths, Kramers, ProStaffs, Head Pros, then YonexOPS before I started using the Ashe silver with brown composite racket.
Yep AA won the US Open in '68 (NOT with the non-existent Comp but with wood). and I wanted desperately to buy a used AA Comp in '71...frame was oxidizing like crazy.

The Comp 2 was the brown trimmed AA frame...introduced later in the '70s. The original AA Comp was silver with black...more flexible than the boron-enhanced Comp 2.
