old racket information
can anyone shed any light on a racket I have owned for many years, it's a Carlton 2.7x flat shaft.
I used it in the late 70's during inter club matches is it still ok to use in match play?

is that a typing error ?
I think it's a 3.7x
It should be fine to use it in match play. Your stringer will find it a novelty.
You may want to try out newer models as these are more easily manoeuvrable when swinging the racquet.

you might want to have it restrung. while a historical artifact, 30+ years old strings probably don't work too well anymore. go easy on the tension. try 20lbs at most.

no it was definitely a 2.7....given to me by an old sports store to try some kind of prototype at the time, I also have a Browning big gun racket I use most club nights very light but stiff.

what's the average price of restringing especially on an old model like mine?

it'd great if you could share some photos of the racket!
