It's a great book with a lot of fantastic photos of players from the 70's.
What's your setup? Natural gut at, say, 40 lbs?i just purchased an Allwood Bjorn Borg from the bay....received it yesterday, and hit with it last night. I, too, had one when I was a kid in the 80's....unfortunately, my temper led to the demise of that particular frame
what a sweet frame! i have recently started to hit/play with woodies again, and i am really enjoying the experience.
The bancroft borg personal played quite different than Bjorns Donnay allwoods and pro. Bjorns donnay pro was not the store model but a extremely stiff and heavy factory mod. Even the store model was very stiff with a small sweetspot, I can not imagine how Bjorn played the way he did with the modified pro strung at 80 lbs.Man I loved my Allwood, the graphics were sweet. I even had the Bancroft one but broke it on an overhead (slipped.) Good memories. I was never a fan of the Borg pro, too stiff.
Just came across this thread. Thanks for the great picture that really took me back down memory lane.Heaps of these were sold in the 70's
