Since I was a kid, my dad has always been fiercly convinced (and convincing...) that Wilson basically is the only brand of racquets that are really good In the middle of the 80's he had a Prince Pro (110 sqi) that his tennis students at the time gave him in appreciation as a christmas gift. He had been playing the Wilson Jack Kramer autograph for several years before that and never really liked the big Prince steel/aluminum racquet. So then He visited our local tennis store and picked up a second hand Wilson Ultra 2! I haven't played that racquet in 15 years or so but I remember it as very stiff with a very small sweetspot. Pretty soon after that he ordered 2 Wilson ProStaff (85 SV) from the USA. I remember that they cost $120 each which was about half of the price that we would pay for them in Sweden (where we live). I still played some old Prince junior racquet and since I didn't have enogh money to buy a ProStaff, I got a Wilson Staff instead which I got for a really good discount where we lived at the time. Does anyone remember those gray Staffs in 100% graphite? I never saw anyone else using those...it was actually a really nice racquet. As I remember it, the Staff was not as stiff as the ProStaff and a little less stable. Anyway, I broke the racquet (smashing it after being defeatd in a local tennis match...I was a very furious kid at the time...). So I also ended up with 2 PS85 (also SV). I remember that I a/b tested my dad's ProStaffs against a Prince Original Graphite (or was it Graphite 2?) and I didn't want to disappoint my dad by buying Prince racquets that he really hated so I chose the ProStaffs. I lived a year in the USA in high school (Somerst, KY) and I really felt that the PS85's were too hard to handle so I ordered a couple of ProStaff Original 6.1 110 sqi and these are the racquets that I still use today. Anyway, just a nostalgic story about nostalgic racquets. I visited my parents the other day and picked up his old ProStaffs and the Ultra 2 so I can test them again after all these years, and I took a couple of pics to share with you guys. The St. Vincent tag is still left on one of the racquets and they are in really really good shape!
