Look at this webpage I found:

Borg used a Slazenger Challenge Number One from 1973, and then Donnays of course. From about 1976 until 1979 , he had a separate contract with the American company, Bancroft.

See this comment that may shed light on what you asked:



"Borg continued to use the Bancroft Borg in Australia. La AKAI Cup in November 1982 was played by him - and won, outperforming the then NO 2 and 3 McEnroe and Lendl, Connors was No. 1 back - with a completely black Bancroft.'s Versatility.."
Really interesting! You'd have to wonder why he kept the Bancroft there. Especially since the Borg Pro had been reinforced with added graphites, if I remember correctly from Borgforever's comments in another thread. Borgforever
