    Found this in my dad dads racquet collection. Anyone know anything about it. Its the Wilson Silver Streak. Looks like a prostaff 85 but is greyish blue.

    shouldn't they call it the greyish/ blueish streak??? graphics match Jack Kramer Staff and Wilson Ceramic era. Poor thing doesn't have any pws...cover looks the exact same era as JK staff as well..I'm guessing this was a less expensive version...???

    The colors looks similar to the 1st generation Matrix.

    Intersting font, too... on the cover and the racquet... like some sort of monotype font.

    looks alomost identical to the grey matrix which feels like buttah!!! anyone know if they made the gray matrix in an 85? the black matrix was stiff, similar stiffness to the ps but without the precious kevlar...the grey matrix...like buttah!!!

    what a noodle!, most of these things (85's)were stiff but not harsh, the grey noodle, I mean matrix, was even softer than the JK staff, which also had some "buttah" in it!

    "man they don't make em like this anymore, I ask cause I'm that sure, do anybody make realshit anymore???" KW

    I want that grey matrix with the pws. Wilson didn't make many noodles, but this one is mushy and soggy allright...totally opposite form the ps 85 and ultras. I miss my thrift store grey matrix from 20 years back...feels like a kramer staff but even softer...durring the first few rounds of this thread I didn't take the SILVER STREAK seriously, fourth round and it's now starting to look good, no pws though...naked...she's gotta be about 19 to 20 years old and still lookin' fresh'n perky !! don't think she's been hit with too much...if at all...hehe...beautiful
