    So I've played with all the tour 90s, my favorite being the k90 and the Prostaff tour 90 2003. I think wilson would get it perfect if they took the k90 racquet shape, design weight and balance, and made it out of the same material as the Prostaff tour 90 2003, or the Wilson Prostaff 85. No gimmicks, no new materials, no bells and whistles, and with good quality control. Just sayin'.

    Hay Wilson. . . .hint, hint. . . :)

    I actually didn't care about the Pro Staff Tour 90 (and the n90), because I didn't like the denser sweetspot. But I thought it was interesting.

    Yeah, most people didn't like it because it was too demanding for people who hit with spin, and for most people in general. I, however, don't hit with alot of spin, I have more of a traditional drive. So, for me, the feel was great, actually my favorite tour 90. To each his own. :)

    I really don't think the denser pattern had a significant play on spin production (strokes >>>>>>>> equipment for me).

    I will say that the denser pattern felt, well different. That's all.

    Hey brent! just did a trade with him for a 85!

    The 90 i'd want is if they can mix the K90 and the old and new pro staff 90 but more on the K90... felt like that was the best 90 so far. I do like the new 90 a little more seen it feel lighter the past 90's.

    I would also have my Pro Staff in some form of dark matte paint.

    I'm not particularly crazy about the bloody q-tip theme.

    That's why Wilson created KPS88 .. it has a big sweet spot, powerful like an aeropro drive but feel and accuracy like a ps85 ..

    Strangely, that is a fairly accurate description of the kPS88. But there was just an insane amount of power with that Pro Staff.

    Yes, that's right people, I'm saying there's too much power for a Pro Staff. Go ahead, get it out of your system and get over it. I won't bite back. :)

    Because I know how absurd that sounds, but it's a Pro Staff! There shouldn't be that much power!
