    So I need help with suggestions from people who have switched from the original pro-staff 6.0 mid plus (95sqin) to something much more recent? I have hit with the new kFactor six one 95sqin and didn't like it that much. I felt it was too head heavy than the pro-staff original and my strokes weren't nearly the same. Anyone else switch from the pro-staff 6.0 mid plus to something else?

    The one in my signature will keep you happy

    I also know one person that went from 6.0 MP to Dunlop AG200...who also happens to be jealous and is eyeing my PRO

    OR if you really want as close of a match to 6.0 get a custom frame from Vantage.

    Thanks for the input Anton. I too had heard the Dunlop is very close to the original PS...I might have to give it a try.

    Head prestige huh...interesting.

    I played with a PS 6.0 85, then went to the PS Classic 6.1 95 and landed with the Yonex RDS 001 MP. I'd recommend giving the RDS 001 a demo.

    I liked the RQiS, especially the serving...but needed something a bit stiffer and more consistent for the groundstrokes. I prefer the feel of the PRO as well.

    I think that's going to make you the happiest until the new Sampras racquet that Wilson is developing comes out.

    Also, are you against trying out the k90?

    A few folks here have compared the 6.0 95 to the midplus Donnay Pro One from TW - it's apparenly a similar player with a little more firmness in the hoop. I have a couple of the Donnays and love 'em for their control and feel, but haven't experienced the Wilsons.

    I've managed to stock up on a few PS 6.0 95's since I heard they were discontinuing and I suggest that you try the same off fleabay or the For Sale mseeageboard here.
    Otherwise, I've also bought a couple of Midplus Redondos and I love 'em! Although I hear this may too go the way of the 6.095.
    I agree with the previous poster about the Donnay Pro One. I got a Vantage too specced as close as possible to the 6.095 and it didnt 'feel' as I'd wished, but whaddya know, you may think different.
    I'm waiting too for the 'new' PS limited edition so you could wait too. If you cant, all I would say is demo as many frames as you can.
    Cant comment on the Dunlop as never played with it.
    Let us all know what you decide as I'm sure anyones opinion on a PS 6095 replacement would be be met with much bickering/opinionating/arguing!!

    Good luck!
