I have a Wilson T2000, 3000, 4000 and 5000. Does anybody know if Wilson made a T1000 or a T6000 as well?

Also I belive there was a TX series as well. Were these available in TX1000, 2000 etc as well?

Many thanks for any info you can give me as I want them all!!!

All I could find from a little quick web searching is that there definitely is a TX2000, and a TX25. Also stumbled upon the Wilson World Class metal racquet. Not a T-series, but another old wilson metal frame.

Did find a site that mentioned a T1000 and T6000 as well. Also found a random listing on the bay for a TX6000. Though it looked just like a T2000, and no guarantee that it verifies existence of a TX6000, could just be a T6000, no X. Same seller has a TX3000 listed. If they're legit, I would assume that there's at least a TX2000-6000, and possibly a TX1000.

Yes. Thanks for that. I am positive that there is a T1000, but really not sure about a T6000. I did notice that TX3000 and TX6000 as well, but I can't find anything about a TX1000, 2000 or 4000.
Maybe somebody else has any ideas?

Don't forget about the Lacoste racquet. Wilson either bought the production line, or had Lacoste make the T2000:

Now that you mentioned Lacoste... I remember that Rene Lacoste, a pro player in 1930's, actually designed the T-2000. I may be wrong, though.

Rene Lacoste was the founder of the Lacoste brand. I heard that before about Wilson buying the rights to the Lacoste frame and rebranding it as T2000. It sounds to me that the Wilson T1000 if there was one has nothing to do with the T2000-5000.
Am I right in saying that?

I have now found out from another source that there indeed was Wilson T1000.....6000.

This is now my last try. Can anybody tell me anything else about the Wilson T series rackets? And about the Wilson TX series of rackets as well?

My buddy has a T1000. I borrowed it for a while. Lots of power, very little control.

i played with a t3000 everyday for a week and a half. Then one day, i switched back to use a prince o3 (a 100 sq-in racquet). Wow i felt like i was the best volleyer in the world :)

I don't believe there was a T1000 if someone has a pic for proof I'd like to see it.

They came up with the name because other top of the line Wilson products at the time (c.1967) used "2000" in their names. Example: the top of the line baseball glove was named A2000 I guess 2000 sounded futuristic. We were supposed to have flying cars by than...so much for that.

I would like to see that T1000....along with Big Foot and the Loch Ness Monster.

Only know the 2 and 3's.
3 was stiffer.
Connors played with 2. He had a weak serve, but well placed.
Those thin support arms should promote a really fast swing speed.
Maybe it was too flexible.
I hit great OUT serves with the 2.
GreenYonex much better for pop and control on flat serves.
Maybe someone as good as Connors could make anything work.
I sucked, and the 2 just sprayed balls everywhere.

Like the Captain, I don't remember a t1000. I do remember a 6000. Don't know if it was a t or tx. The 2000-4000 had round heads. The higher numbers got a little more oval from what I remember. One of them grew a little knob on its handle too, I guess for vibration control. I played with the t3000 for a while, and I liked it. I liked other rackets better though, including the PDP Open and the Yonex OPS aluminum rackets.

I'm holding a TX4000 in my lap as I type this. :) Got it a flea market for 50 cents. It's an amazing little racket. Feels almost as good as my Babolat APDGT.

In fact, I'm getting ready to email Klipper to see if they can get me the string pattern for it.

Weird thing is, I could not for the life of me figure out what it was, until I stumbled upon an **** listing and studied all the pictures.

I realized mine is a TX4000 with a weirdo paint job. Where it's supposed to say "TX4000" on the handle, it just says "TITANIUM".

There are some other variations in the paint job around the head, but it's definitely the same racket.

I wonder why Wilson sold a version without the "TX4000" labeling. Any ideas??
