    One of these racquets will be back this year! Can you guess which one?

    Pick which one you'd want most. You can pick more than one. Discuss!

    I'd love for the Wilson Pro Staff 6.0 85 to be brought back,but I somehow can't imagine it happening...

    Wilson left a serious void in their line-up by discontinuing the KPS 88, so I'd venture to say the 6.0 will be back in some variation or another. That, or TW got their hands on more PC600s... again.

    By the way, you left out the RD-7.

    I voted for 200G :) Why?
    Well, my knowledge/experience with Yonex is very limited. PS85? It is a possibility but I don't think so. Volkl 10 is nice racquet and I used to have it. Don't see it happening.
    PC600 is another legendary frame. As far as my perception go about the Head strategy, I just cannot see it happening...
    Cannot wait to see! :)

    When you say that it will return, is it going to be in limited quantities or is the manufacturer adding it to their line-up?

    Thank you TW, this is very exciting news!

    I think it'll either be the Yonex or the Dunlop. Wilson, Head, and Volkl already have very similar racquets in their line-ups, but the Dunlop was a true classic and still fetches a hefty price. The Yonex, too, is similar in that regard.

    How an exciting idea to bring back one of these legends!

    As I read so many great reviews on TW TT I was getting curious about the Head Prestige Classic.

    Lately I managed to purchase a secondhand one for a long demo period. I have to admit that it deserves its state of a legend. So much sense of control, connectioness with my strokes and a sensational feel when you hit the ball into the sweet area that I only experience with a midsize frame.

    I would like to see that the Head Prestige Classic will be available again at TW USA and at TW Europe as well because I live in Europe.

    Wow! this is very exciting. I think it is between the Pro Staff and the Prestige Classic.

    There are many better Yonex classics - Super RD Tour isn't a classic to me. Should be from the "R" not "RD" series - R-10, R-22...Either would be top on my list.

    I would love to see the PC600 reissued, or the 200G because I like Dunlop frames...

    I hope the PC600 comes back; it also seems to be the easiest one for Head to bring back since they are still using the same molds. I doubt the 200G would come back but if Injection Moldeing is still available, all the better.

    I hope for the Yonex as I love the Super RD Tour, but from previous statements, I don't think it will be.

    Pro Staff for me. I remembered the first time I played with a friend's St. Vincent. It felt great playing it for an hour, but my arms and shoulder hurt for like 2 days afterwards.

  18. I would like to see the Yonex brought back.
    Right now they only have the VCore 95D in the 95sq" headsize.

    Will this be the original racket brought back? Or will it be a new variation, like the KFactor version of the Pro Staff/EXO3 version of the POG?

    Please let it be the ps85. VW would get my money so fast just so I could have a new one without paying 250+. If the volkl came back out in the midplus, I'd give it a serious demo for sure. I've come to the conclusion my Fischer Pro 1 is too low powered for me after like 3 years.

    I guess, and I hope, it's the PC600.

    I'm pretty sure it will be the original one.

    Hope it's made with the original Graphite/Twaron composition.

    I can't imagine it will be the Max 200G as I think the injection mold technology has not been used for many years. So it is either going to be PS 85 or the PC 600. Actually can we petition for both to be brought back? :)

    It would have to be the PS6.0 and/or the PC600. Because TW knows that if they joke about those racquets coming back or get those zealots in a false uproar then there would be hell to pay!

    An inside source told me that Don Hightower of TW was recently seen vacationing on St. Vincent island in the Caribbean. I wonder if that means anything.

    I actually am thinking it might be the SRD Tour for the simple reason that the 95 head size is specified...if TW were just throwing a few 'incorrect' frames out there, they'd be likely to use the 90 for nostalgia purposes.

    I hope for the PS85 or the PC600! Two of the best rackets ever made, and unlike the 200G, the process to make them isn't literally extinct!

    Actually, I would love it if the Pro Staff 6.0 95 came back! But the 85 would do just fine, too :)

    I wish it were the Dunlop MAX 200G but I must admit it is pure wishful thinking. In terms of probability I would vote for the PS or the Prestige. Can't wait!!

    I agree... either the 85 or the PC

    Not practical to bring back the 200g with the expensive, complex molding process

    So which one is it already? At least let us know the date in which you'll let us know. Artificially creating suspense is not cool.

    Imagine the uproar and outrage if this classic racket returned with an ugly PJ?
    Let's hope the designers don't screw up the cosmetics, BLX-style

    I'm guessing it's the Head or the Volkl. Volkl has done classics with updated cosmetics (e.g. V1, C10 Pro) and Head has done re-issues before (e.g. Agassi Ltd Edition Rad).

    I don't recall Wilson ever doing something like that. I hope I'm wrong about this, but they already did the KPS88 to commemorate Sampras and the PS 6.0 85, so it doesn't make sense for them to do a re-issue the PS 6.0 85.
