Godfrey racquets received a patent for a stringing pattern involving double mains and double crosses. The patent drawings are a tad more complex than the example shown here which is a close version of what it should have been, however, I am sure the stringers would have done this the easier way. This is the GODFREY Thorobred model. What was most appealing about this model is not only the stringing but the use of some early celluloid type finish around the shaft which gives the wood a really nice deep honey gloss coat. Additionally, it has a reinforced throat treatment.
