When BB says he was the only top 10 player paying for his rackets, didn't Puma stop making tennis rackets altogether, so he bought the mold off Puma and he had Estusa (?? or a similar sounding company??) make them for him, the Estusa frames were identical to the Puma's, even the PJ being navy blue with the red hoop. My tennis partner when I was playing as a junior was BB obsessed and had both the Puma and Estusa frames, they were pretty heavy and had that bolt in the handle that you could adjust the balance with, classic frames.

As for Pete, only ever remember him playing with the PS85, reckon BB was referring to when he played Fed in the exhibition matches, although most conspiracy theorists on TW believe Pete was using Fed's old frames if i remember correctly....?
