I cannot find the specs for the Wilson Hyper Pro Staff 6.5 95 in² frame anywhere. This is the frame I am referring to (very handsome frame!!!):

• Could someone please provide them to me? How well does this frame play?

• What other frames does the HPS 6.5 95 play like?

• When did they stop making these?

I wouldn't mind starting a collection of the ProStaff family. After getting the HPS 6.5, I'll be looking into the PS 6.0 St. Vincent and Chicago models.

Thanks in advanced everyone.

Good day now. 8)

^ Thanks. I didn't think TW would have an archive of the specs. since they don't no longer sell the frame.

Now if someone would give me some feedback about the performance of the HPS 6.5 and comparisons of it to other frames, that would be greatly appreciated.

My brother stills plays with this frame. It is extrmely low powered, and I had trouble serving with is because of its light weight could not get the weight on the ball I am used to. It felt very arm friendly despite its weight and had a less harsh feel than others in the pro staff line. In all a nice players frame, but I found it a little too demanding when playing against all the pure drives ect. out there, but that is just me.

^ Yeah, I use low-powered frames (current main frame is a PS 6.0 85) and so that shouldn't be a downside. As far as flex, man is the RDC rating low! As far as the light static & dynamic weight, no problem either, since I customize everything I touch. I could never settle for a sub-13 oz frame.

Thanks for the replying.
