    I am using 2012 wilson prostaff 90. but I am considering 95 too because I need more power. But I am not sure whether they provide same feel. I know there are huge difference of weight. But my question is if i add leads and leather grip on the 95, the 95 would become close to the 90 on the feel? What is your thought? any experience?

    Pretty much everyone seem agreed that the 95 is very low powered. Don't know what you're getting at...

    The PS95 does not have anywhere near the power of the 90. Use the TW tools to compare racket power levels and power zone sizes.

    In general, heavier rackets, especially higher swingweight, have more power and bigger power zones.

    The PS95 is lighter, much lighter, so maybe you can swing it faster to generate some power. But, my opinion is you cannot increase swing speed enough to make up for a racket that lacks mass. Also, you cannot swing faster on volleys, slices or defensive shots like returns, so you will really feel the lack of mass on these shots.

    If you get the PS95, research threads on customization. I think it could be a great racket if you set it up properly by adding some weight to the head for power and stability, and weigth to the handle for proper balance.
