    Who knows the whole story about the PS 6.0 Classic before it became the PS 6.1 Classic?

    I think it was just the "Pro Staff Classic" and then they added the 6.1. Don't think there was ever a 6.0 Classic.

    A friend has a PS 6.0 Classic. Apparently Wilson introduced it as a replacement for the 6.0 but since it was so popular they decided to keep the 6.0 and aside of it the 6.0 Classic. To avoid mistakes they decided to rename it to 6.1 Classic.

    However, this is heresay and i would like to know if it is a true story.

    I think it is just a Pro Staff Classic with a 6.0 Swing Index listed on the inside throat.

    A former coaching colleague of mine taught in Japan years ago and was given a couple by a friend who worked at Wilson. He'd given one to a student some time before, and here are photos of the one he had left. I hit with it and liked it a lot – and I was never a fan of the PSC 6.1. It was stiff, and the stringed was stiffer (18 mains, stiff poly, high tension), but it had a really pleasant feel at impact.

    Yep, that would be the one.
    Apparently it is not just a one digit difference but also plays totally unlike the 6.1
    Interesting...
