    Recently came into one of these for a great deal so I bought it, ordered a couple sets of grommets and strung it up - plays wonderfully but I can't seem to find much info on it.
    With new Bumper/grommets, new grip, OG, Dampener and strings it weighs in at 12.39 ounces...

    Feels a little bit stiff but definitely solid...
    This is similar to the 6.1 classic except it's got a blue/gold colorway instead of the red/yellow colors...


    Any thoughts?

    I use to play with the 4.2. it is a stiff frame and can be jarring unless you go with a soft string. fantastic frame. i believe it to be better than any other wilson frame ever made.

    No chance; the 4.2 has a much thicker beam. I could imagine the 6.1 Classic grommets fitting, but I don't know for sure.

    There has been at least one good thread on the PS 4.2 here. Ah... Here we go.

    Grommets for the PSC 6.1 95 fit perfectly, contact Wilson. Still own one. Btw, mine has a leather grip, weighs 12.9 oz.

    The Pro Staff Classic 6.1 95 and the Pre Staff Classic 4.2 95 are the same mold. The Pro Staff 6.0 95 is different mold.

    i played this racquet years ago and loved it. in my opinion it was extremely stiff. i believe their stiffness eclipsed 70RA, and was closer to 73/74. someone can correct me if i am wrong.....

    Love this raqcquet! Used to play with it in high school, but switched to the 6.1s my senior year. Started playing tennis again after over a decade and picked up 4 of these. Definitely stiffer, but packs a good punch. Only thing I don't like is how the paint chips off of these compared to the 6.1s.
