    [​IMG] Need help: Becker racquet and Yonex
    Just picked up two frames and neeed some feedback/advice

    Puma Boris Becker Winner
    Grip size is 4 1/2
    Overall great shape, one cosmetic chip under throat
    16 x 19 bed
    Silver frame - green puma writing?

    2nd frame is Yonex R-24 light blue color e/ leather grip
    unstrung and couldn't find any details?
    Frame is in Great shape - grip size appears to be 4 1/2?

    Re-posted here from the regular racquet section due to no feedback - ANyone have any ideas about these frames? I need to string up the Yonex abd possibly re-string the Puma - Sweet find here, paid $0 for both frames - got them from a friend and they are in about 8.5/10 condition.

    Any thoughts or feedback greatly appreciated.

    I think you got an amazing bargain with the BB Winner - these fetch big bucks on the Bay. It's one of my top three favourite racquets - Boris Becker played with it throughout his career, paint-jobbed in later years.

    The Yonex R-24 I don't know, but any Rex King model is sure to be a good frame. I recently acquired an R-18 which is a beauty - blue tonings, rather than the usual grey. :)

    I had both these sticks. Boy do I miss them.

    My first racquet was the Yonex R18. Absolutely beautiful black/blue paint job. Then got an R22 and the R24 to follow. All Rexkings were pimp back then.
