Is there a racket that is similar to the old Pro Staff 4.2 si?

    I'm looking to update my rackets. I played with the Pro Staff 4.2si back in 1996-97 and I loved them. I haven't updated my racket since. I'm sure the frame is quite dead compared to what they were like when I first got them.

    Any suggestion as to what to replace them with. I would like something similar if possible. Thanks!

    As far as I remember, PS4.2 is the most stiff player's. It's like 80 something. It's pretty head light. I doubt that you'll be able to find a similar one nowadays. The closest that came to my mind would be the PS6.0 95.

    PS 4.2 95 uses the same mold as the ps classic 6.1, maybe try that. IMHO, 4.2 was better than the 6.1, more damped, higher sweetspot, a bit stiffer

    The HPS 6.1 or 6.1 "Classic" is probably as close as you will get today. I thought the original classic 6.1 was stiff...the 4.2 was beyond stiff. Do your arm a favor and hit the new Ncode 6.1 95 before you buy anything. It's a sweet stick.

    Kai,

    Can you tell us the weight, beam width and string pattern of your PS 4.2s? Many thanks.
