no specs. but I know the history from the designers themselves. This is what I am allowed to share (pretend I didn't tell you and don't ask me any questions please): Estusa bought the mold and had the racquet. Or so they thought. The only bought Boston Garden...the Celtics franchise was not theirs...Boris was upset and found the Pro Vantech to be a royal asspain. Then to rectify the situation and save their contract Boris suggested that Estusa do something revolutionary by (sorry...cant share any more, bye)

Hahahahahaha.......:):)

Estusa's were great racquets indeed. I knew the bloke who was the main dealer in the UK of them in the mid 90's (when I say main dealer, basically the only), he was left with them until recently, when I think he off loaded them to someone!! No it wasn't me:(

i think "RB" is a mistype - it should be PB for power beam.

Estusa also used this technology in thei Pirotech frame, they tried this on the Becker inspired frames

Look at the RB frame in this link

I saw one for sale on auction site but it was cracked!

Someone interested in a BB ProVantech BKS SL4 with bag, condition 9/10 with only minor scratches at the bumper? tt-paul@web.de

Is that the WIDE body version of the BB type frame?

One of the best frames all time for the backhand slice. The ball seemed to dwell on the string for days. I don't know the specs, but would guess it would measure out as very flexible.

Its not a mystype. RB means "Round Body". It's printed in the racquet body.

Will post pictures.

Anyone? ......

Looks really nice!! I have a couple of the "normal" version of the Becker frame but this rounded version looks more playable.

I used th ePi.ROtech back in the days. A black oversize frame that was really solid and beautiful to play with. Great doubles stick!!!

Interesting racquet: It looks like a Puma Becker Super that is having an allergic reaction!

(maybe it got stung by a Head "bumblebee"?) :lol:
