    client says he bought it in 1986 in Singapore.

    notice there is no "SP" on the shaft. perhaps they haven't made the differentiation then.

    Took me 30 minutes to string that. Anyone who wants finger strength and speed while stringing should practice on tennis rackets

    I hope that's what it looked like before it was strung and not after.

    Got this for free from a client and was pretty daring that day so I strung it up at 20x22lbs.
