    As far as the pros go, maybe players outside the Top 100?

    As far as house league, I'm sure there are plenty.

    Though I used that racket several years ago, I know that it wouldn't work for me now. It was just too heavy and of course a small but awesome sweet spot. I still use Wilson rackets.

    I don't think anybody other than Federer uses a 90. The closest person I can think of is Dimitrov's 93 (marketed as a ProStaff 95).

    I went from a 90 to the 85.

    My ProStaff 85 died, but I still use my original Black Ace (today!) which is 86 sq. inches.

    Haas does, he and all the other Head Prestige Mid'ers out there, since it's actually, an 89,5 sq.i. frame, according to some co-members from TT (there's a couple of threads about this)

    Yes, the Pro Kennex Black Ace from the early 80's.

    I dont think the pros are going this way. Its a great racquet, but pros seem to like bigger heads.

    Yup, I still use mine on a regular basis. I have a couple of other racquets in my bag just in case my timing is off. But I can serve with the PS85 like no other racquet!
