I didn't know it was braided...How much of the layup was Boron? Was it meant to rival the Prince Boron at the time? The headscuffs on my R-10 reveals some elegant braided construction:

...hmmm digressing off-topic here but yeah they're the ones...though I always thought the ones with the blue toecap in the corner were a North American version only and not the Euro version, but it's been 25yrs so I know I'd be wrong:)

I'm not sure, but I think this is interwoven graphite. It looks exactly like the top of my SRD95, and it has title "interwoven HM graphite" (HM is probably "high modulus").

Is this R-10 suitable for singled-handed backhand?
I want to buy one. But I am afraid it won't fit for my backhand.
