For me it was the Jack Kramer Pro Staff !! Badically, because Mac swung it...but it was a solid , beautiful frame to play with !! Loved the beveled grip...the chocolate brown leather....just the best !! Anybody got a pic of the card that came with the frame when you bought it ? Had Mac on it of course. But lets hear about your favorite woodie !! Speakinf of Woodie....LOVED the Prince Woidiecas well ❤

I traded my only one for a custom-made little tennis statue that was made for me when I was in the 8th grade. Wish I had the racquet but I still have the art piece 40 years later.

When I first started playing, it was with a Rossignol Stratos, the red one not the white one. I couldn't hit with much spin with it, but it had a great feel and got me interested in tennis. I often wish I still had it. Sadly, I got rid of it when graphite racquets became widely available in my teenage years.

Jack Kramer Autograph. I even had a Jack Kramer OS wood that had graphite in it. The graphite separated from the wood and I sent it back to Wilson. They replaced it with an Autograph.

Donny Allwood for me.

I have several wooden racquets, from Maxply's, Adidas and some Wilson models, but the Allwood always felt the easiest to swing and the most manoeuvrable on all shots. Plus I was a huge Borg fan, so incredibly bias as well :)

Another vote for the Wilson Jack Kramer Pro Staff. My transition from wood to graphite reinforced frames began with the Head Vilas... what a beauty! I still have examples of both as well as some Dunlop Maxply's, and others from my favorite era of tennis.

I went from my Jack Kramer Auto to a Pro Kennex all wood that I played a couple of years with (before going to the Wilson Ultra II Mid), but I can’t remember the name of it.
