    I know that the K Pro Staff 88 is out of production but I was hoping you might have a few laying arround. If you could find a couple I could take them off your hands. If not, do you know if Wilson might ever bring them back like they did with the ps 85? Thank you for your time.

    If they still had they would still be selling them. And I highly doubt Wilson will bring them back as they did not sell particularly well. But there are plenty of used ones in the For Sale or Trade section of the forum.

    @thomasj,

    Sorry, but we have no more in stock. The Pro Staff 85 was more popular that's why Wilson brought it back.

    Split the difference and go with the Pro Staff 6.1 BLX 90 which offers more plow than the PS 85 but is easier to swing than the KPS 88.

    The 90 has more in common with the 85 than the 88 does.

    The 88 is completely different.

    I own all three sticks. Let me tell you, the 90 is quite similar to the 88. The head size is practically the same. There was a thread about it. The 88 has more graphite feel than the 90, but does not have the butterfly feel of the 85. Power wise the 90 is closer to the 88. In terms of weight distribution the 88 is also closer to the 90.
