    Yes, I believe it's the oversize version of that particular model. Don't quote me on this but I think it's also extended length.

    Funny that I just read this thread and was about to take it out to hit with. I miss this stick, it was the only 12 oz. players racket in oversize. I asked the head of Wilson why they didn't continue this spec in the ncodes because I told him 'I loved that racket!', his response was, 'Well, you were the only one who did'. Oh well, it was a great racket in my opinion. Anyone know of an oversized players racket above 12 oz.?

    I know the Hammmer Tour can have a cross bar but compared to a normal hyper carbon 6.1 the head seems longer it must be an oversize model as some have suggested

    I believe Wilson 5.6 OS with rollers has a crossbar as well.
