Are all JK PS's St. Vincents? I just got one via Craig's List and it's in pristine condition. Just curious.

Good question. There are many threads started on Jack Kramer Staff. I never seen them made in China. :)

I didn't have time to look closely, was running out the door, but the stamp on the bottom-despite being very faint-seemed to read KOQ.

Well, I looked at all the JK threads I could find on here. One linked to woodentennis and in the JK racket list the graphite prostaff was only listed as being made in St. Vincent. So, based on the stamped code and the fact that I can't find any info on it being made elsewhere, I'll assume it's a real live SV. No 6.0, but better than nothing.

btw, if you didnt' konw the jack kramer isn't a prostaff 85. Its a staff not a prostaff, so its not just a pjed ps85 sv. I think it was made in st. vincent, but its no prostaff.

It's the same mold as the 6.0 85, except its layup is 80/20 graphite/glass instead of the 6.0's 80/20 graphite/kevlar.

Yeah, sorry.:rolleyes:

Prostaff is just a name. The JK still came out of SV and out of the same mold as the 6.0. I understand it's not the same racket, but for getting it dirt cheap it's a fun classic to have and mess around with.
