Does anybody know whether there are more than one versions of the Bjorn Borg Donnay racquet? I heard that he strung his racquet about 90 lb. Is that true? If so, which racquet did he use? Allwood? Borg Pro?

First he used the Allwood, then later Donnay specially designed the Borg Pro for him which had graphite inlays in between the wood layers to stiffen the hoop to better withstand the super high tensions he was stringing his racquets at. BTW, I believe he strung at about 80 lbs., not as high as 90 lbs.

Prior to Donnay, I think he used a Slazenger (Pro #1, if I remember correctly).
