    I saw a 95 on the page, I can only assume thats the headsize

    Didn't see anything about a Steam Pro in the Wilson catalog so I'm not sure it'll be available in the States

    Nah, I've seen somewhere that Steam Pro is a real thing. In fact this is what Kei Nishikori uses, not Steam 100. So I'm pretty sure it is a real thing manufactured by Wilson. It just won't be available in the states for some reason. I may go take a vacation down at Japan over the summer, maybe i will grab one.

    Well, it's a legit racquet...actually a remake of the Tour BLX (the Steam 95) the Steam Tour will be close to Kei's specs...

    I spoke with Wilson...it won't be available to the US, only in Japan...

    Pretty disappointing...I'll try to get at least one in the next couple of months and will see if I can give you some feedback..

    Take care,

    Im here in Japan for vacation and saw this racket in a sports shop called Victoria. Thinking about buying it. Stuck between this and the Wilson Steam 100. Will get back to you if I end up buying the 95.

    You should buy it and give it a review. I've thought about purchasing one but without being able to demo it, it probably wouldn't be worth it (for me at least). I also suggest you pick up Kei's Choice Premier II (1/2 4G, 1/2 Wilson Natural).

    The Steam 96 looks like a reincarnation of the KPro Tour.
