    The Wilson Prostaff 85, first sold in 1983 and still going strong 30 year later.

    Used to win at least 29* major singles titles and a few doubles also.


    *Rough calcs: Sampras 14, Edberg 6, Pierce 1, Courier 4, Evert 4 (of her 18 majors) = 29. Plus Edberg won 3 doubles majors with it too.

    Don't forget Jim Grabb winning a couple of GS dubs titles with it.

    Now let's hope Wilson will finally acknowledge the fact that the first PS came from a Belgium factory.
    Officially, even after 30 years, they started manufacture this icon in Chicago.
