I just got mine tested on an RDC machine. Details (incl. non RDC related specs)

ProStaff 6.0 85 China edition (earlier make)
Weight - 361 grams (racquet + 2 layers of 4" x 1/4" cm lead @ 3 and 9 + head's head tape + pacific force 18)
Stiffness - 68
SW - 342

Without the leadtape and headtape the racquet was a serving monster but my groundstrokes were only so-so. But with their addition its now very stable and quite powerful on groundstrokes but only so-so on serves (especially second). It is still the lowest powered racquet I have used. Still looking around to find that right balance for optimal serves/groundstrokes.

Can you tell us the balance of your 85? And does your 85 have a white butt cap?

Thanks.

when giving balance points is the convention usually to give the balance of the racquet strung or unstrung?

Used to have a Taiwanese model. It was trashed because I was stupid and let a friend borrow it. It was replaced with an early Chinese model. Now, I have a recent Chinese model and I don't like it. I think I got a lemon. I shouldn't have bought it because it didn't feel right in the shop.

Forget the st. vincents and taiwan makes, those early Chinese makes are the hardest to find! I don't know why they can't maintain some level of consistency.

I think my ps85 is from china. It is stock weight and I don't really like it. I prefer a stiffer string bed.
