    I was looking at the specs of the new Wilson PS Tour 95 and noticed that the composition of the racquet was Graphite and Kevlar (same as the Tour 90). A friend of mine just purchased a Pro Staff Tour 95 from another source and I noticed that the racquet was made of Hypercarbon. Are the specs on TW incorrect or is there now a version of 95 with a Graphite and Kevlar composition?

    AFAIK, the TW specs for the Tour 95 and Tour 90 are correct. Hypercarbon is nothing more than a stiffer graphite. So both the Tour 95 and Tour 90 are made of graphite and kevlar with a sprinkling of hypercarbon to reinforce certain stress points, especially around the head. Since hypercarbon IS graphite, they don't bother to distinguish between the two in the specs, even though the racquet has "Hypercarbon" printed on the side.
