    Hi folks
    I have two Wilson ProStaff Classic 6.1Si 16x18 in my bag
    But they are not the same :-(
    Both seem te be Original, but:
    Little difference in paint (see picture below)
    Also gripsize L4 vs SL4
    and little balance difference 2mm
    That is not so bad, only the weigth:

    one is 332 gram
    the other 308 gram
    both unstrung

    I know the that back in the day Europe got the PS Classic 6.0 95 with yellow paint that went down all the way to the grip and also came with a Fairway leather grip on the racquet. The USA version yellow came part way and a synthetic grip came with the racquet.

    The PS Classic was my first racquet change after the demise of my beloved 200gs. Great stick and a good legacy as I still play with the 6.1 95 series. As far as the Classic is concerned, I recall that there were several different paint jobs--some as OP indicated and some glossy versus some flatter in color. But they all seemed to play the same.

    Which one is heavier, the one labeled L4 or SL4? I have one that says L4 that is definitely heavier than 309 grams, but I don't have a scale to weigh it one.

    The L4 is the heavier one

    My guess would be that SL4 stands for superlight, but never saw anything on the market but the L4, which is definitely more like 330 grams.

    That's interesting. It's 7% lighter and labled sl4. But L4 is the grip size, so SL can't mean superlight. Maybe it's a fake. 21 grams is too large for qc variations. Also, it's yellow where the grip meets the handle not black. Very strange.

    L4 means 4 1/2 inch grip size. I don't know what SL-4 means. Maybe Stretch?

    The L in L4 means Light. While the SL stands for Super Light.
