    Do they still make the Wilson PS 85? If they don't I think it is a great racket and they should continue making them.

    Someone posted here that Wilson still makes PS 6.0 85's on large special orders.

    Actually, PS 6.0 85 are not "made". They are cloned. Yup, grown in petri dishes. TW stole one of Sampras' racquets years ago and have been cloning them in their laboratory ever since. So you're right, they haven't made them in many years. TW just clones them, then sells them. ;) LOL.

    how can a company sell something w/o making it?

    and yes, from what i have read on these boards, a company won't make a racket unless there is a huge number of rackets ordered (i believe it was like 1000 or so)

    I have talked to a number of retailers and they all said that the minimum order of 6.0's for a production run is 200 frames. So if TW or any other shop wants to carry them they would have to order a run of 200 or more. This would be absolutley no problem for TW to sell.
