Last up, we have a beast of a racquet:
This racquet is extremely solid with old-school weight. It was made in the 1980s and is made of a combination of boron and graphite.
Jonathan weighed in on this racquet saying, “The Wimby BP is heavy, heavy. So it is ideal for advanced players who can handle a lot of weight. Put another way, if you are strong enough to get the Wimby moving, it will produce a very heavy ball. If you are not strong enough to get it moving, you might find things a bit tougher.”
It has an open string pattern that provides great and easy access to spin, and like Jonathan said, in the right hands, this one hits an extremely heavy ball. Something else this racquet offers? Maximum stability. It has two stabilizer bars in the throat that help with this stabilization.
Genuine is genuine, as this racquet comes with the original leather grip in a size 5. There are only nine of these babies available, so if you’re looking to purchase you’ll have to shorten your decision making time!
Specs for this racquet include a length of 27 inches, an unstrung weight of 11.6 ounces and a pattern of 16×19. Something else to keep in mind is that these racquets have been in storage for a while (about 20-30 years) so they may have some slight blemishes (as would you if you’d been kept in a box in the dark all these years!).
Get in there and have yourself some old school fun.
