Andreef Speedshaft Tennis Racquet - 1940

     

1940 - This frame was the first link to the future in racket making. Notice the similarity to the open throat designs of today. Some forty years would pass between this frame's début and the graphite wonders of the eighties. The one piece steamed construction and under enforced shoulders make it very fragile. Once made in Canada by a small manufacturer, they are highly collectible because of the limited numbers made, and their delicate frame.
