Specs on Estusa Boris Becker Provantech RB
 
Hi.

It just came in to my possession an Estusa Boris Becker Provantech RB.

Does anyone have the specs on this racquet?

Thanks!!

no specs. but I know the history from the designers themselves. This is what I am allowed to share (pretend I didn't tell you and don't ask me any questions please): Estusa bought the mold and had the racquet. Or so they thought. The only bought Boston Garden...the Celtics franchise was not theirs...Boris was upset and found the Pro Vantech to be a royal asspain. Then to rectify the situation and save their contract Boris suggested that Estusa do something revolutionary by (sorry...cant share any more, bye)

no he needed fresh ones...with his old specs, old process, so they....doh...can't say more, sorry

Hahahahahaha.......:):)

Estusa's were great racquets indeed. I knew the bloke who was the main dealer in the UK of them in the mid 90's (when I say main dealer, basically the only), he was left with them until recently, when I think he off loaded them to someone!! No it wasn't me:(

I just had it restrung. I'm picking it up next thursday. Can't wait to hit some balls with it!

Also got my new vantage this week....so..it will be fun to try out thr new racquets.

so what's up with vantage. They make amazing pro racquets but refuse to make 85's...??? what a tease...

RB? That stands for ROUND BEAM

i think "RB" is a mistype - it should be PB for power beam.

MikeVolkl123 01-31-2011 10:38 AM

Not a mistype...it is RB for ROUND BEAM

Estusa also used this technology in thei Pirotech frame, they tried this on the Becker inspired frames

Look at the RB frame in this link

I saw one for sale on auction site but it was cracked!

Someone interested in a BB ProVantech BKS SL4 with bag, condition 9/10 with only minor scratches at the bumper? tt-paul@web.de

Is that the WIDE body version of the BB type frame?

One of the best frames all time for the backhand slice. The ball seemed to dwell on the string for days. I don't know the specs, but would guess it would measure out as very flexible.
