I spotted the Maynard, ATPFox, Tretorn and what I thought was a Seamco/Seamless. Didn't know about the Hart, very nice!
I have a Hart somewhere; but I also have the Seamco 'Liberator' that uses the same green color stickers on the throat.

Back to the Research Triangle connection, the last Seamco Rosewall I strung was an emergency for Steve Friedman's Pro Shop in the Shops of Carrboro(Village of Carrboro?). This would have been about '84 and the young shop fellow took in the Seamco while Steve was out of the shop. Steve came back and panicked, having never strung one of those(long before the days of comprehensive stringing digests and them internets ). Steve was getting a bit upset since he couldn't call the customer(no cell phones in every pocket); BUT, I was able to string the racket from memory, even though it had been a good 7 years since my last one. Saved the day, donchaknow .
