Just on the quick: Yes, Borg had Bancroft in the US for some seasons, and Borg's racquet history is complex and not totally analyzed -- but according to several sources to me, as I've said before, the AKAI-stick is the newer, improved -- even more graphite enforced and slightly bigger hitting area Donnay-Borg-version for his "comeback" in early 1983...

Remember Borg had the Belgian-Donnay factory almost at his complete disposal. Would be strange for Bancroft to mould weapons for him at the same time as the Donnay-factory did...

Anyhoo... There might be a mystery here...
