So I was having a lesson with my coach, and we got into this conversation about what he said was pretty much the best Prostaff made...

He said that like, on the buttcap, it said like some tropical island name, Saint Lucia he thought. Along the frame were like, airholes. He also said that Wilson closed down that plant, and those rackets were pretty much discontinued..

Does anyone have a picture, model, or have this racket?

It was St. Vincent. The plant has been closed down for a number of years now.

your coach's knowledge about the history of st. vincent ps is very limited and inaccurate i might add!

The island would be St.Vincent and the airholes would be called...grommet holes.

Your coach got owned by somebody over the internet. You might want to have him read up on some TT treads, the St. Vincent racquets are legendary on here.

Well, if your coach is referring to the St. Vincent, I would agree it is hands down the best pro staff, if not best racquet ever made.
