    Many here have claimed that the Wilson Pro Staff 6.0 Original 85 has a very dense string pattern.
    Well I played with one for 3 minutes and all I can say is that all Head racquets with 18-20 string patterns are much denser than the 85 Pro Staff!
    I only hit some serves, so I can't really give an opinion about it's spin capabilities, but I'd believe that this racquet produces more spin than the Head Prestige Classic as well!

    I do really wonder who claimed that Pro Staff Original has dense string pattern?

    Well if you look at the small head compared to the 90 and the 93 mids. Maybe it may have a dense pattern. But I'm not a mathmaticians

    Huh? Who claimed the PS 6.0 85 has a dense pattern? I don't think I've ever seen anyone claim that on these boards. :confused:

    It's 16x18, which is NOT dense.

    Yeah, I've seen someone claim that it does have a dense pattern. I think their reasoning was that because it has an 85 sq" head, the strings must therefore be closer together. Incorrect.
    If you look, you'll see that the mains are closer to the edge of the frame than other racquets.

    If that person thinks 16x18 on an 85 sq. in. head is dense, he should try a wood racquet, almost all of which were 65 sq. in. with 18x20 patterns! Yikes!!!

    I used them for 10 years...and I would agree. As much spin as I needed.
