Young Boris used a adidas open throat wood frame then adidas gtx I think , then a puma vilas which he used the rest of his career with the super paint job . Then an estusa paint job for a hot second he did use a real estusa . Then switched to a head graphite pro for practice and exo matches then gave up and had his puma ( paint job super ) pressed out a large amount for himself and some others to be sold retail with no graphics only the same red and blue faded into each color paint scheme shared with his trusty puma “ super” ...just remember it want a real super it was the puma vilas under it all

Wasn't Becker using Puma before Vilas? Vilas went to the Puma frame post-Slazenger. Wow, these guys bounced around a lot.

Becker is even from another century so not interesting just as the racquet model he endorsed. That was a premium super wet noodle not suitable for playing tennis.

Becker’s frame that he used was a 59 Ra. The Puma Boris Becker Super was a 64 Ra . A racket built in 1984 with a stiffness in the mid 60,s is hardly a noodle let alone a wet noodle . If Becker has no interest to you Ron ... then GO AWAY .

i dont go away. I played once the blue Becker racquet. It did suck big time. Probably only made from cheap fibreglass and no graphite. No power at all. I think even the old wooden Maxply racquets played better The fact that boomboom Boris endorses a certain model doesnt mean it is a good racquet.

John would say that some people on this board cannot be serious.
