I have the HPS 6.0 95, though I no longer play with it.

I started using the mid in february. You can't imagine how much this frame has done to develop my game. The ps 6.0 85 rules!!!

I have the ProStaff 6.0 95 Triad too(in addition to the original 85). A fine backup racquet.

Isn't that racquet actually called a "Triad 6.0"? Anyway, that racquet has absolutely no relation whatsoever to the PS 6.0 85/95. I know, I've used it.

I know, I've used it.I know, it is very different, you're right(but it is a ProStaff). But I didn't even think of it until the others put the HPS, so I thought "2 can play that game, suckas!" mwah

Hmmm...are you sure about that? Does it say "ProStaff" anywhere on the racquet? I thought Wilson once advertised it as the "Triad 6.0 with ProStaff technology", but never actually called it a ProStaff racquet.

started playing with the 6.0 95, but i've since preferred the 85 because of the heftier swingweight.

I sold a couple of the 6.0 Triad Prostaff racquets for my stringer. They do have Prostaff on them. There is a non prostaff version that is orange and black, and another that is Prostaff that is black and white.

Hmmm...I'd say that's NOT a ProStaff then or else they would just call it a ProStaff Triad 6.0 rather than "Triad 6.0 with Pro Staff technology". I think in this case, "Pro Staff technology" merely means that it's headlight in balance, since all the other Triad models are head heavy, which is why those say "with Hammer technology". That's how they're trying to differentiate the Triad 6.0 from all the other Triad models. Also, I'm sure Wilson hoped that by mentioning a famous name like "Pro Staff" would help to sell the racquet even though that racquet is not even remotely like a real Pro Staff.

That was the TW description of it. I hit with it while I had them for sale. I did not care for them at all. Did not play anything like the 6.0 I am pretty sure they did it for namesake.

I'll admit, I'm not sure what ProStaff tech is, I thought it was just that the frame was headlight. But in any event it plays differently from the 85 but it's good enough to not tread over the ProStaff name. I'm satisfied with it.

I think it's more like how in Japan, Wilson sells the PS Tour 90 with the words "St. Vincent Process" written on the throat even though that racquet, as with all current Wilson racquets, are made in China and have absolutely nothing to do with St. Vincent. The St. Vincent factory was closed in 1991 so any racquet manufactured since then could not possibly have a "St. Vincent Process". They just put "St. Vincent" on the racquet because it's a famous, recognizable name, and they hoped it would help to sell more racquets. I think Wilson did the same thing by putting the words "Pro Staff" on the Triad 6.0.

I Play With bumpered or unbumpered st vincents or chicagos as long as the weight is on the lighter side (there is a difference). some are a tad heavier than others.
