    hi.

    Just got two great Estusa racquets. One Pro Legend Classic and one Power Play Tour.

    They are new... With plastic still around the handle.. Bought them from a guy who used to own a sports goods store that filed chapter 11 some years ago. He still,has a lot of material to sell.

    I have looked for hours on the net,.. And couldn't find the specs on these racquet. They seem very similar.

    Does anyone know the specs??

    Will post pictures tomorrow. I am on ipad now.

    I used the Pro Legend Classic Pro. Very nice frame! Very much plays like Wilson Pro Staff Classic 6.1.

    Very nice frame!!

    ..not sure about the 1991 French Open, but I think someone said here he also used the ProLegend Classic Lite model (besides the yellow ProLegend Classic one), it might be this one

    Actually, and this inside info comes from Jimbo333, all Estusa's played by Jimmy came from the Slazenger Phantom mould. All that differs were the paint jobs.
    Look very closely to the image and you can see the OMS bulge at the 4 o clock position.

    His personal rackets, apparently, were all Phantom 90's.
    The consumer models may have had different specs and headsizes.
    He had several Estusa, and later AmerPro and Wavex models autographed he never actually played with.

    I think that Jimbo from 1989 used the same frame, the Slazenger Phantom 90 (same mold of Estusa Pro Legend Classic), but with different paint jobs, which the most famous was the bright yellow Estusa in the Us Open '91 (when he reached the epic semi-final at 39 years).
