i thought only prince used crossbars

Yes, I believe it's the oversize version of that particular model. Don't quote me on this but I think it's also extended length.

yep...that's a real racket. the hps 6.1 OS came w/ one. i believe it was 110 sq in.

Funny that I just read this thread and was about to take it out to hit with. I miss this stick, it was the only 12 oz. players racket in oversize. I asked the head of Wilson why they didn't continue this spec in the ncodes because I told him 'I loved that racket!', his response was, 'Well, you were the only one who did'. Oh well, it was a great racket in my opinion. Anyone know of an oversized players racket above 12 oz.?

Anyone know of an oversized players racket above 12 oz.?

Here are some:

Prince Precision Equipe OS
Volkl C10 Pro OS
Prince TT Graphite OS
Wilson HPS 5.0 OS
Prince Synergy DB 26 OS

All of these have been discontinued except for the POG.

I know the Hammmer Tour can have a cross bar but compared to a normal hyper carbon 6.1 the head seems longer it must be an oversize model as some have suggested

I think that's geniune products, and as far as i know Wilson also made hyper hammer 5.2 with crossbar version

I believe Wilson 5.6 OS with rollers has a crossbar as well.
