This guy i played the other night had this racket. it was wilson, atleast a couple of years old, i would guess 5-10 years old based on the style. It was red and yellow and a fairly thin beam. I *think* it said hammer, might have said hyper. Anyway he had disgusting spin on his serve. Just curious what stick it might be. ideas??

Yup, sounds like the HPS 6.1 (HyperProStaff 6.1 95).

I'd be surprised if it wasn't.

Breakpoint i think you are right! He was probably 4.5, very smooth player, terrific all around game. Beautiful serve. Muscular chest.

Saqdeez, there is a remote chance it could be the Hyper Prostaff 6.0 Tour, but it is most likely the HPS 6.1 - Wilson's best racquet since the PS 6.0 85!

In the hands of a good player, this racquet can be deadly. Has good plow-through so it allows one to pound the ball hard from the baseline, yet, it's also great for serve and volley play as it serves great and is very solid on volleys. I almost switched to this racquet a couple of years ago but decided that the swingweight might be a bit much for me over a long session. However, the first time I played with it I beat a guy that I had never beaten before. It just added a whole new element of power to my game.

You sure it had yellow in it? Could be the hyper pro staff 5.0..red/white

With Red & Yellow?

The PS Tour 90 has red on the outside and yellow on the inside of the head. It is thin beam. The black is matted. It has the word Hyper Carbon.

Sorry I don't have a pic. (Well, too lazy to take a pic of my racket and posting it up ... :) ) May be someone could help with a picture of the PS Tour 90.
