    I saw a Carlton racket laying around last night and my god was it old but i wondered when from.

    The shaft was completely black, no marking to identify the model. The only marking were Carlton written near the T-joint. It wasn't a build in T-Joint, and the head frame was brown but not made of wood. It was also strung in a very old fashioned way, close to every edge of the racket, the strings covered the whole head?

    Any ideas?

    Could do but it was at my club last night just laying around, dunno who's it was. Could have taken it at the end of the night but thought it might belong to someone.

    Its a bit like the old Cab attachment.jpg

    Like the middle, same colours except the hole head was brown and te t-joint covered the head frame instead of joining on, but by the design i am guessing its as old as this
