Volkl made a "World Cup" racket that was bright yellow, similar in construction to the Servo Soft rackets, but these were all conventionally strung. The Big Diagonal line was obviously diagonally strung, but I don't remember any yellow models.
There were several variations of the yellow World Cups (V throats with the plastic yokes, mono shafts, etc.).

I know MadRaq made frames with diagonally strung strings.

Volkl's early composites with diagonal stringing always featured the word "Diagonal" in the model names (e.g., Big Diagonal). The yellow World Cup series did not feature a diagonally strung model. While this doesn't rule out an earlier, yellow diagonally strung model, it's unlikely. You're probably looking for an off-white or black frame with black/white/red accenting.

By the way, talk about lumber! The World Cups were Volkl's serious pro series of the mid-eighties. Just about every Eastern Bloc pro played these behemoths. IMO, not impressive frames. Heavy and head-heavy, poor feel, little power, but they did look pretty nifty.

Do you know the names of the players that used the Volkl Servo?
