    Fantastic looking racket. Would really make a great collector's item. Can't imagine playing with such an enormous head though.

    Yet another

    Wilson marketing gimmick - I bet they advertised it as 'ultimate blend of control and power'...

    Those extra bars are probably there to support the huge head.

    This 125 si is the original

    Hi all

    I've read somewhere (wilson webpage?) it (125 si) was THE original product of prostaff 6.0 to my surprise. But I never encountered it so far. Thanks for sharing it!

    Hi,
    I’m a tennis player and a fan like you, looking for these rare rackets. The **** seller Kentonjames, is a professional buyer/seller. If you bid at high prices for these rare racket, you’ll just influence him to search for good deals and out bid us ebayer for the same racket. If you don’t believe me, search for this past item number 3664589089. He actually paid a mere $20 for the Jack Kramer Pro Staff racket. But he’ll describe how rare it is and will sell it for maybe $150-300. He just posted another rare Pro Staff mid size with a BUY NOW price of $300(only $81 from eirene). Don’t promote his business; stop bidding for his outrageous racket. Be patient and good deal will come. If we stop promoting his business, he’ll stop outbidding us for the same racket at a good deal price. This way we will end up with the good deal and self-satisfaction. Spread the word! Read their feedback for past items they themselves purchased and you will see that they purchased for a much cheaper price rackets. DON’T BUY FROM THEM! Keep **** a clean and fair to find deals.

    Thanks,
    HT

    I also have one of these rackets. It was my wife's first graphite. It is not that stiff, and quite frankly, her Prince Magnesium Pro 125 played better. The "art work" under the throat bridge is reinforcement to handle the up to 78 or 80 pounds of recommended tension. Like all early graphites, the upper hoop is pretty flexible, so the sweetspot is in the lower half of the rackets face. It's a nice looking racket though, with a full length cover, etc (rare back then). It didn't stay around long.

    Well, I've bought a vintage racquet from Kenton James on **** before, and it was a fair price. I have no beef with him, or the free market. If you'll recall, this was a big deal on here in the old forum, with folks flipping Adidas Lendl racquets from TW to ****. Whatever the market will bear...

    There's another character I bought from on ****...one of my only bad experiences there to date. The guy was REALLY generous in his assessment/quality ratings. When I got it, It looked like a lump of turd. He's changed his username at least twice since then, but uses the same style, pictures, descriptions. I wouldn't buy from him again.

    A local player used this racquet to return serves, the 110 to serve back about 20 yrs ago. Met him 2 yrs ago and he was still using this combo for dubs. Deja Vu, all over again.

    Here is a short guide for you as you are new (or in your case haven't been around much):

    If creating a new thread:

    *There are a few different sub sections to the fourms- please make sure to post your question in the right one.
    *Please try to make your thread topic as specific as possible.
    *Use the search function before posting a thread: http://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/search.php

    General posting:

    *When posting a question, try to go into as much detail as possible.
    *Do not use l00K @ M3 - we do not think you're cool, and you'll most likely be mocked rather than helped.


    Finally, familiarize your self with the TW Forum Polices – Do you know if you are allowed to post competitor links? Don’t know? Then be sure to read it.


    Newbies are always welcome and we hope you enjoy it in the Tennis Talk community!

    I laughed, for sure. ;)

    On topic, though: that's a pretty cool looking racquet. I wonder how it plays.
