    I bought a Estusa Boris Becker Kevron BKS at my local Play It Again Sports. I'm sure it's nothing special. We all know which Estusa model Becker used, haha. This is the first Estusa that I have ever seen, that's why I bought it. For some of you $10.00 might seem like a lot, but it's an alright price for me.

    The racquet is a maroon-ey color. BKS stands for Bio Kinetic System. Using this thread (http://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/showthread.php?t=100018), I estimate the headsize to be about 120sq in. I could be wrong though. The racquet seems light weight and head-heavy. The recommended tension, which is specified on the racquet, is about 60-70 pounds.

    I can't wait to play test it. Whether good or not, it's just another sub racquet to have whenever the strings on my POG breaks.

    Anyone? Could anyone tell me anything about this racquet? I'll up some pictures if you'd like. It seems like a tweener to me.

    How many Estusa models are there?

    Does anyone have a list?

    Answers would be much appreciated, thank you.

    What is Twaron?

    Based on it's composition, would you consider it to be a good racquet?

    It has a few scratches around the frame. The grommets for the upper-head part seem a little weird too.

    Thanks!

    So 12.1oz huh? It dosen't feel like it at all, haha. My POG is the same weight, but it feels heavier.

    Do you know the headsize? I don't think your list specified headsizes.

    I've read the 115sq in, but his information makes me sketchy.

    Why?

    If you convert the grams to oz given by TopSpinT and compare it to Dino's, it's two different values.

    TopSpinT - 11.6oz (if I remember)

    Dino - 12.1oz

    It's only 0.5oz, but it's still different.

    I know that it's hard to get exact specifications with these racquets though.
