Yeah, it's funny how it was designed for him and he didn't end up using it much......

not light enough for the "crew" that posts in the general racket forum. the 1st pro staffs Jimmy used the hoop was the same shape as his T-2000.

was it kevlar??? do you have pics? the prostaff has sooooo much more torque than the t2000. No wonder Connors was felled by it....

You're aware that Connors used to lead up his T2000s.......

yes, I thought there was mention of a standard, as opposed to midsize prostaff though...."yah-allah" (hebrew slang for "holy *****")

supposedly connors is on the cover of an 85 world tennis mag with (get this) a STANDARD size Prostaff! if anyone has a prostaff with a small standard size head contact me immediately!!!

makes perfect sense as it is common knowledge that the midsize prostaff had too much torque for his neanderthal strokes, forcing Jimbo back to the t 2000.

I remember that also. Wilson made Connors a Pro Staff with the same head shape as the T-2000.

No contact me immediately:)

I'm a huge Jimbo fan, which I suppose is obvious, and it's been common knowledge for years amongst us fans that he used a demo prostaff that had a different head to the normal version. However, it was only a demo and it is absolutely impossible to find:(

I've never seen one anywhere, never mind owned one or played with one:(

I got my hands on 100 of the new old stock of the Connors PS demo!













































Psych! :p

that's a cruel joke!!!! ps 85 has so much torque compared to the t2000. I would trade my left nut for a Connors baby-head prostaff....well almost

my best friend kids me about the "bris"; constantly. unlike me: he actually went to one and described it:

for those (like the Plaz) who categorically refuse to attend any and all blood letting rituals, here are some awesome highlights and recaps of the days action:
http://i44.tinypic.com/e7b2mq.jpg
#1: perfect baby lying peacefully, giggling
#2: mutilated baby bleeding profusely, trembling in shock and in need of medical attention
#3: mother faints screaming:"why did I do it?!?!?!"
#4: blood covered infant (still badly in need of medical attention) trembles in shock and trauma as chicken liver and other earth changing topics are casually discussed by family members and bris-goers....
time to put this ancient ritual of mutilation to an end, especially for women in the Muslim world who (at adolescence) are mutilated in the most shattering, and unspeakable way; even today!!!!

I know that racquetfreak and some other world class collectors have outstanding World Tennis and Tennis magazine collections (yes I'm slightly jealous). World Tennis cover in 1985 features connors with the baby hoop prostaff (with pws!!!!). Other than money being abolished and free love being made mandatory; I am holding out for this baby hoop prostaff as humanities greatest hope in these trying times!!!!

Yes, I have seen this photo before, but don't have a copy of it, and couldn't post it here anyway because my computer is f*****:(

As a reminder, if anyone wants to volunteer to post this photo here, it will make some of us slightly happy until we find the eerrrr holy grail?

I'm willling to bet it plays Great! I wonder if they made for him like his T2000. Jimmy's T2000 frames were actually lighter than the ones available to the public, so he could "weigh them down" to his liking or Wilson ran it off{the pro staff) at hs final desired weight.

Sounds like the work of "Shakey the Mohel".

McEnroe or Connors would both make outstanding Mohels, they both had an excellent slice.
