    I could be wrong, but I don't believe they exist. I believe the PS 6.0 95 was introduced only after Wilson moved racquet production from Taiwan to China around 1994. So I think all PS 6.0 95s were made in China. Does anyone actually have a Taiwan version? I'd like to know, too.

    Coda,
    I didn't start this thread. The original poster was asking specifically about the 95 version, in case you hadn't noticed.

    I guess my continued sarcasm has failed, I'm sorry BP.

  6. bp, i had a ps95 6.0 with the white butt cap and black spongy grip, i think it said taiwan on it but it was older, the new one i got has the leather grip and black butt cap. i dont know if this indicates the relative dates or places of manufacture.
    on another subject have you seen any of the old "largehead" pro staff's, i saw one on **** but i dont know what the head size was? my friend has an old 125 pro staff. its crazy looking haha

    austin,
    Are you positive that the PS 6.0 95 you have with the white butt cap says "Made in Taiwan" on it? I have a really old one with a white butt cap and the words "95 SQ. IN." at the 5 o'clock position on the inside of the hoop instead of the common "MIDPLUS" printed, and even that one is made in China. So a white butt cap does not necessarily mean it's not made in China. I think Wilson changed from white to black butt caps in the late 90's but started production in China in the mid-90's.

    I have not seen a Largehead ProStaff in person but have also seen them on ****. I think the ProStaff originally came in 85, 110, and 125 headsizes. The 95 was introduced way later.

  8. bp, ill check when i get home but the paint finish seems to be more shiny on that one whereas the newer one is more grainy....anyways i loved the older one but someone said they hit better after they get broken in.....sounds like you like the 95 a lot too....
    what type of string and tensions you use??
