Try looking on the bay, or scour your local second hand sports stores.

i have one with similar markings.. no way near this condition, but is debatable as to whether its an SV.. it may be a chicago due to the raised throat grommets, the 65-70 lb sticker and it being bumperless.. it may be worth doing a search. Either way, it looks like a great ps85!

Thanks, I do photography a lot.

The butt cap is JYQ, so I think it's one of the early bumperless SV's.

I thought the SV's used both the individual flat and raised throat grommets.

Yes, they did. However, the rasied grommets are typically found on the earlier Vincent, and all Chicagos.

only $170???? You got a GREAT deal there. We can't wait till you give us a report of how it hits on the court. I have 2 PS 6.0s (albiet, newer versions), and I love them ~ as does everyone who has tried them out.

The strings on it are OLD and loose (<50lb for sure)...so I have to restring it first. But I can comment on my other SV. It hits similarly to K90, except it is less powerful and has less spin. It's great for 1HBH and flat serve. Accuracy is pinpoint. Volleying is autopilot if you place the racquet in front of the ball.

But to be honest, I don't see a huge difference between it and the K90. I can play just as well with the K90, perhaps even better due to its spin potential.

The current strings on the SV must be a decade old. The SV played terribly because of the strings, so I cut the strings out --> an opportunity to take pics of an unstrung early SV. Sorry, couldn't resist posting :)
