    Hey Drak, if you ever get a chance in future, can you get the static weight and balance of his frame?

    I have his frame and is almost even balance. Fairly flexible frame and powerful. Curious if the spec is similar.

    I think it's been well documented here that he's using a 93.

    That's really high. Didn't he use to go 42 lbs in a Prestige Mid?

    They are quite different frames. The prestige is low powered with a tight pattern. The Wilson is surprisingly quite powerful so not surprised he strings higher. It feels powerful even with full poly.

    I've never played with the 93 but the new Pro Staff 95 is very low powered. The Pro Staff is probably nothing like what he uses though

    I've never hit with the 95 but imagine they would be different

    Geez, the PS95 has a SW of 306 in stock form. No way any pro plays with it unless they load it up with a ton of lead.

    The 93 isn't even in stock form, it has lead and silicone so I was presuming if the 95 was a similar spec they would still play different. The swing weight is over 360 for the 93 using the TW method
