    i got one of these recently at a thrift store and was made aware that some of them say "braided graphite/fiberglass composite 80% graphite 20% fiberglass" on the side of the throat and others say

    "graphite composite" does anyone know the history of the writing on the throat as to which came first and which is better?

    I found a jack kramer staff at a thrift store also. It plays great. I strung it up with forten sweet @ 61 lbs.
    Mine also says 80% graphite 20% fiberglass. I have a lower end wilson 85 from the same era and that one just says graphite composite and is way way flexier.

    not sure what is the difference between these 2 versions, but I thought all these JK are from St. Vincent. plays nice.

    Same frame different text. I really do not remember which came first. Different feel than the Pro Staff, the other frames out of the 85 mold were 60/40 or50/50 graphite/fiberglass as I recall and were not braided.
