Right now, I am playing my old Wilson Pro Staff 85 "originals" (St. Vincent) and I just love them :) But, I only have 2 of them, and I am thinking of alternatives to switch to. So, if I was to buy any Wilson racquet of the current lineup, which model should I look at that would in the same style as the ones I own (if possible)? I know I could always look for second hand PS85s but they are not so easy to find here in Sweden where I live...

I am a 4.5-5.0 player playing with massive topspin on my ground strokes. I don't want a light racquet, and nothing oversize...

Try the BLX Pro Staff Six.One 90.

Nothing from the current line will match the unique feel of the PS 85, but the current generation 90 is a very nice frame and worth a demo.

Tennis Warehouse has some remakes of the PS 85 which are a little softer than the St. Vincents, but I don't know whether they're available in Sweden.

Nothing is similar to a PS85. Even the Tour 90 series is significantly different (more head heavy and sluggish) but it hits a heavier ball.

I don't get it. Tennis Warehouse currently sells the new release of the PS85. Many people say it's the best release so far.

Why would you have to look for a new frame if TW already sells practically the identical frame to what you're using???

Makes no sense.

I would recommend The Mega-age but the company have gone bankrupt from what I herd. But you can buy them off the bay and their pretty cheap at $32. I compared the two rackets and I think it's a similar mold.

I demoed the 6.1 last week and did not find it similar to the PS 85. I will not be buying it.

OP: TW is selling PS 85s. Do you know that?
