    I had a friend give me about 50 old racquets from the 70's to the early 90's and one of them was this oddity. I can't seem to find anything on it. It's brand new, unstrung. Made in Taiwan 100% graphite Wilson 110.

    The date on the sticker on the handle says Feb 22nd 1987.

    Any info would be appreciated. I'd love to hear from anybody who has hit with it...I'm terribly tempted.

    This probably should've been started in the classic racquets thread...

    Is this thing that obscure? Nobody knows of it at all?

    ok, I'll bite.

    Wilson made several rackets in the mid-late 80's off the success of the ProStaff series.

    I played the aggressor in those years which looked similar but midsize, but with a grey bass boat paintjob (i think oversize PWS rackets were less common, at least in my area).
    I believe they were more like 80/20 graphite/FG.

    Hard to tell as i don't think there were many ***** type rackets back then. It's definitely of that vintage.

    Thanks very much. I've seen some of the aggressors you speak of (I think the trend you referred to lasted a while; I actually played a bit on the wide body graphite aggressor in the early 90's, which was a poor man's PS), but I've seen few OS racquets, especially 100% graphite thin beams from Wilson during that era, and I can't seem to find a single detail on this online.
    Thanks again for the input.

    It looks to be from the same mold as the Largehead Pro Staff (110).

    I'm not a Wilson expert, but I have US market Wilson catalogues from this time frame, and this model is not in them.

    The sticker is interesting - it seems to indicate that this particular frame was a production sample from the Taiwanese OEM. Did your friend give you other interesting racquets?

    Hmm, that's interesting. Any idea how I could confirm such?

    I've barely gone through the others, so I'm not certain what all is in there. Most are older models (aluminum, wood, etc), but I'll definitely update as I go through them. Thanks!
