    Can anyone provide any info about this frame? I know there was a Kneissl Blue Star Big but it was any alu racquet and the Blue Star Top looks more like a White Star Ivan Lendl... THQ.

    there was a blue star pro that had the same mold as the lendl. White Star pro had the "egghead" and the beam got thicker towards the handle...this looks like more of a round head with a constant beam and a collar near the grip, more pics pls!

    There was a Blue Star Mid that has the same collar as your racquet.

    I also seem to remember a Top Star that was all black that is similar to your racquet.

    I have the Blue Star Mid that is pictured on vsbabolat's link. Like he said, similar cosmetics to your picture but in monoshaft form. Probably mostly or all fiberglass construction, fairly heavy and flexy.
