    I'm long term demoing a tour 95. Long term because the club has never asked for the demo back for a month. Anyway, one of the guys at the club had an estusa braided. It felt sweet, only played with it for a few minutes though. My question is, what is the best estusa for S&V? And is this particular estusa better at S&V than the tour 95? I am really falling in love with the tour 95 and thought I had beaten the demo game, not really sure now.

    If I was picking for myself I'd pick the Pro Braided over the Tour 95 anyways. It's heavier, much more stable and real sweet for all shots. My game will never outgrow the racquet.

    how does the braided compare to the prostaff 6.0 85,95 in terms of S&Ving and margin of error you can have?

    I haven't used a PS 6.0 85" but other posters say the PBB is easier to use.

    Yes, the PBB is much more forgiving and easier to play than the PS 85. It bears some similarities to the 6.0 95. I have three PBBs (two strung) and one 6.0 95. The Wilson has more power on the ground and on serves. The Estusa produces as much spin and more directional control than the Wilson. The 6.0 95 volleys very well, but the PBB volleys better than just about anything, a real wand at the net. It's too head-light with an overgrip, so I added some lead to the hoop, making it 12.9 oz. overall. It serves better this way, and hits heavier groundstrokes, but it's a mite slower, too. I haven't play the 85 enough to add to the large volume of data posted on it here and on the old board. I've never hit with the new Tour 95.
