    Do we have the swingweight of the cat yet? What about the stiffness?

    My inventory has increased not to four (4) Wilson PSO 85, two of which are Chicago made, and the other two the coveted St. Vincent models. Actually the SV's I have are near mint condition. BTW, I also have the 125.

    My commentary in hitting with these sticks (PS85) is that, you have to be a really good player, at least a 4.5 on up to appreciate the nuances of the racquet. You pretty much have to hit the the ball on the center of stringbed, cause it is not very forgiving on off center hits. But it does make you concentrate more in finding the center of your racquets. It is also a hefty racquet for the average Joe. Mine has synthetic gut, but most afficianados will likely recommend real gut.

    The sweetspot with synthetic gut or polys is deep, but with natural gut, it's bottomless. :)

    Nice! The PS 125 is a fun stick. I have 3 110's which hit nicely as well.

    The StV 85s are the best though IMO.
