    Hey folks,

    So I'll warn you from the beginning: I'm looking for a specific paintjob/version of this frame.

    The one I seek fits this description:

    • One side of the throat says "ProStaff Classic 6.1" with "Classic" written in cursive. The "ProStaff" font is the later, non-slanted font.
    • The inside of the above-mentioned side of the throat says "Recommended Tension Rang: 55-65 lbs. Higher tensions give you more control. Lower tensions give you more power. For Optimum Playability Use Wilson Sensation String and Cushion-Aire Grip."
    • The other external side of the throat says "Wilson" in traditional font, followed by "Graphite/Kevlar Composite 80% Graphite 20% Kevlar." This side also features the hologram.
    • The inside of this side of the throat says "PWS, the original Perimeter Weighting System, gives you the advantage of repositioned weight to provide extra stability, power and control in a head light racquet."
    • At one o'clock and 11 o'clock on the hoop, the text "ProStaff Classic 6.1" appears. Again, the "ProStaff" is the later font, and "Classic" is in cursive.
    • At 5 o'clock and 7 o'clock, the text "95 SQ. IN." appears.
    • The butt cap is white. If at all possible, I would prefer it be stamped with "UKW."

    As I said, I'm looking for a specific version of the Classic 6.1.

    Grip size must be 4 1/2. No specific condition, provided there are no cracks.

    Hopefully some of you can help me out here. Thanks!

    Hey Seth,

    May I ask what the particular paintjob means, just personal preference or it does mean anything? I do realize there are a few varieties of the PS Classic 6.1 racket, and your description is one of them. The two I have for example are different in their paintjob, slanted/non-slanted font and etc.

    I came across two frames featuring the paintjob I'm looking for. In the interest of finding a third that matches my current two, I'm being picky.

    I don't know too much about all the different versions, I'm just trying to match. :)

    I have one that is exactly the same as your description, while the other is different and is 1/4 in. longer. The two frames feel differently.
