All i know about them is that they were also made in St. Vincent.. Can anyone give me a detailed explanation of the racquet, specs, comparisons perhaps?

They are great rackets that play much like the sampras stV ps60 except with the fiberglass mix, they are more flexible thus have more control.
The ps60 has a rdc flex of like 64 and I would guess the psjk is more like 50. Other specs are pretty similar.

Ah, sweet! Hopefully i can pick one up.. I dare won't try getting a PS85 seeing how they go for 200+ on the bay.

To be honest i never knew they were 16x18 pattern (Forgive me, i'm only 18 and have been playing for about 2 years!) until recently haha. My sig shows what i play with, and yeah i can't use anything bigger than 95..

u can also do a search..

in short... the ps85 was based on it. same basic mold

and will only run u about $20.... if u like it then go all out and find a kramer ($100) or chicago ($200)

yes.....................

I'm sorry i didn't mean to word it like that.. I mean i would just find it surprising that they would be priced that low.

Unfortunately, all the China PS85's i see on the bay are for at least $200 :\ But i appreciate the racquets you listed similar to that of the 85. Thanks!

Haha yes sir! They definitely are. I just wish garage sales and thrift shops were big on tennis racquets and what not.. _-_

If you are patient and can wait, the Wilson Sting or something similar may pop up in thrift stores and garage sales. I acquired two Stings, one at $5 and another (with PWS) for $15.

If you want one soon, search the bay and/or the Classified section here in Talk Tennis. You will probably find some in $20 - $30 range. I think Bud (a TT member) may have a couple of ProKennex Black Ace for $12 + shipping. He also has Copper Ace also.

Out of these racquets: Sting, PS85 (China), PK Black Ace and Copper Ace, my preference is the PK Copper Ace. It's flexible (gentle to the arm) and has great control.

Thanks, but i'm in no big rush really to acquire one. I mean if i find it, i'll pray to god i have some cash in my wallet, seeing how i'm a college student haha.

Hopefully i'll find something of the sorts. Gotta go garage sale hunting and what not _-_

To be honest with you, I'm not even familiar with Sting II and the other ceramic variations. I was talking about Sting Midsize Graphite.
