    Anybody ever heard of this stick? I don't know how old it is, but my friend had one and let me hit with it, and man, it felt really good. It's around 85 in. head size, and i'd say it weighs like 12 oz. I looked on **** and they didnt have any. Anybody know what I'm talking about and where I can find one of these things?

    Worst racquet Wilson ever made, replaced by the Profile. Plus its 20 yrs old!

    Wasn't the Ultra II the graphite/boron blend that was actually stiffer and a few bucks more than the Pro Staff? I thought this was considered a pretty good racquet for its time, no?

    The Ultra2 back in the day when it was used along with the ps85, was preferred by more good players for serving than was the ps85. The ps85 is more highly regarded as the serving racquet however because of the sampras factor. this frame wasnt replaced by the profile..its a small headed thin beamed racquet which is entirely diff than the Profile which was a really heavy very widebody

    The Ultra 2 was Wilson's flagship frame when it was introduced. It was marketed above the ProStaff.

    So what's the difference between the Ultra 2 and PS85?

    Probably the Ultra 2, owned both. The Ultra 2 is/was really heavy. With an 85" head, these racquets were not about power but controlling it.
