    Hey guys,

    I've been looking for a PS85 for awhile, and i seem to have found one.
    But the seller says it's a Wilson FPK 95, while the pics seem to show a PS85.

    any insight?

    here are pics:

    hey!! yeah I'm also going to bid for that frame, I had also that feeling of confused cause the description says its a Wilson ultra 95 but pictures of that frame shows that its really a PS85.

    Good luck on the bidding

    That thing looks like it's been kept in a nasty basement or garage.

    It's a St. Vincent too.

    But if I were interested, I'd be put off by the wear on the head. It's been worn through to the Kevlar braid.

    It's got the squared-off grommet channel. Assuming the plastic parts haven't been changed, it's outfitted with a bumperguard and the thinner throat grommets. Also, if the butt cap hasn't been changed, it has the red "W" without the registered trademark symbol.

    These things point to it being a SV.

    Don't know the price but, given the price history for this stick, likely big money for a POS.

    I'd be put off by the fact that the seller is claiming that it's an Ultra 95!

    You 'win' the bidding, and you have no idea which racquet will show up at your door.

    Not to mention the strings were broken and never cut.

    Did any of you guys end up buying this racket?

    It ended up going for $113 and some change. I'm not sure if that was with shipping or not.......
