    People buy a racquet for their visual appeal?!

    The pros don't seem to mind why would you... because they are paid for? If they are paid for, then I think they could manage to ask for a special/exclusive PJ to them... not only the racquets themselves.

    Most classic racquets that are raved about had a simple black base color and some other colored stripe and, that didn't make them bad racquets.

    Will there really be a 90 Pro Staff version? There isn't one on pre-sale.

    Do not be confused with simple elegance to flamboyant "LOOK AT ME" designs. And designs that make no sense.

    I never said it was a good idea, just that it happened... mankind as a whole is spectacular at being surprising.

    Let's face it after Wilson got sued we know for sure that Roger doesn't play with a PSBLX90 and he won't be playing with the 2014 PS90. My guess he's still playing with the Wilson Pro Staff Tour 90 that has a 17mm beam is stiffer than current models and will just have the new paint job. Wilson should just give us what Riger is really playing with. If the 2014 is higher than 17mm for example 17.5 or 18mm for sure Roger isn't using that racquet. He likes his racquet beam to be thin and stiff and so do I. I still prefer my nCode 90 over the psblx90 too bad the Ncode doesn't have a shorter modern handle like the psblx90. The PSblx 90 flexes too much it can't handle hard shots like an ncode 90 can.

    Does anyone know where to buy the original Wilson Pro Staff Tour 90 brand new? I don't see them on TW anywhere.

    You are like 18 or 19 right? Probably been playing tennis a few years?

    Come back when you have 15-20 years of tennis under your belt and tell us your little theories then.

    agreed. this was the magic combination in the days of yore. my old wilson fpk 95 tapered beam was built like that. best g-damn racket i ever owned, nothing had better feel.

    Inhale leftover bits of VS 17 Team fragments in a diamond encrusted platter and get inspired by zapvors GOATish happenstance.

    50+ Likes are the gauge of TT GOATness potential.

    My initial reaction exactly-"fugly" what is Wilson thinking. Having demoed it for two weeks -ProStaff 95s, this racket blows away anything in the market right now except maybe Prince 98tour. After that, I didn't give a rat's *** what it looks like. As far as I am concerned it could be pink with a hello kitty theme, it still bring a lethal game. Yes Kevlar. The feel superb, very connected. Previous racket 90blx pro staff 2012.

    Yeah but this is an end of an era. We need at least a couple threads to discuss the impact of (lack there of) these gold caps and how they affect people's forehands/backhands and spins.

    Them gold caps gave me 28.3% more spins on my groundstrokes, 23.74% more power on my serves, and 82.386% more precisions on ankle volleys.
