I saw in another thread that pre-order was going to be on Friday and it would be available on the website. I didn't see it.

Where exactly and when? Help?

And a follow-up question - which nobody has answered yet:
Will these also be available from TW Europe? (Or in stores in Europe in general?)

We should have that racquet up for pre-sale by the end of this week.

When was the pre-sale going to be for the PS85 reissue?

The earlier post said it would be available, end of last week.
Did we miss something? Where will it show up on the site?

TW,

I guess I can wait until Thursday, but I just want to confirm. There is no pre-sale for the PS85?

This is kind of getting boring now. TW created all this hype and now they just keep saying end of this week. The week comes and goes and next week you get the same answer. Not cool.

Technically we have no answer so far concerning this week. They said they "should" have it up by the end of last week, but did not get it up for some reason. I could be wrong, but did TW change their NCode section of their Wilson racquets to just say "Classic" racquets? Seems like they might be adding something soon there!

Cheers!

I ordered mine already

But why does it have a BLX buttcap?

TW Staff
06-29-2011, 02:44 PM
Wilson no longer makes the white/red buttcap, so they went with the BLX buttcap.

Hi Spencer

Are these *newly* manufactured frames or just stock from when they were last made a few years back?

Is the flex really 62? This seems much more flexible than the originals.

Can someone from TW please confirm that the specs of this new issue are indeed different from the last version that TW sold a few years ago and are indeed accurate? Also, if anyone has played with this new issue alongside the older TW SMU version, are you able to tell a difference in the way they feel and play? The specs are quite a bit different so I would imagine that you would be able to tell some differences. Frankly, I actually like the new specs better but I was wondering if these specs translated to a tangible difference in actual play? Thanks.

The specs are correct. I took a batch, spec'd them and took the average.

My PS 85 just arrived.
Thank you TW for the great customer service and fast shipping.
I'm just a bit upset because there's a paint chip on the racquet :(
possibly from stringing?

TW Staff

I apologize for the paint chip. Please contact our customer service at 800-883-6647 or info@tennis-warehouse.com and explain what happened. We will take care of this problem.

I don't think they're doing old vs. new, but Jason Huang said in another thread TW's gonna do a video review with Chris, Granville, Troy and Spencer.
