    After my lifelong Pro Staff usage (PS85 --> PST90 --> K90 --> KPS88 -- k90...

    I have now settled back on the PST... and all I have to say is that I'm staying put. I love the PS line, and have always had a heavier frame (my K90's were similar specs to my KPS88's)

    But now that I'm getting up in age (44) I found that getting the 88 or leaded up K90 over the top for serves, etc., especially late in matches just wasnt cutting it any more. I know, I could go back to stock k90... but the PST gives that little more - great off groundies, at the net, and serves are fantastic.

    Anyone else landed at the same conclusion?

    The non-GT version is comfortable but it is a heavier racket so it has impacted my shoulder in the past when I had lead tape on it. I took the lead tape off and now I'm not having any problems.
