I hear a lot of St Vincent such as Pro Staffs and what not, but who is or what is St Vincent? A customizer of racquets like Bosworth? A short history or be really nice. Thanks all.

Basically 6.0s manufactured in the St.Vincent plant. Supposed to be rare and of legendary quality.

He was an obscure monk who frequented the Caribbean. To relieve the long periods of boredom that come with the solitude of spiritual meditation, he fashioned a racquet out of palm fronds and balls out of palm fiber twine. He wore a hair shirt while batting around the balls to constantly remind him of his suffering and sacrifice.

After designing the PS 85 and realizing what a difficult racquet it was to play with, and the pain and suffering it would inflict on its users, Wilson decided to add the St. Vincent brand as a way to recognize the suffering its users would go through while trying to use the PS 85 in today's game. Very rare, but still around is the matching Wilson PS 85 logo hair shirt tennis polo.

That doesn't seem to be a box beam.

I think the Wilson Pro Staff 6.0 85 Argentina would be a nice one to try out one of these days... ;)
