Wilson ProStaff 85 Question
 
Hey guys, regarding the PS85 new batches from TW, are they constantly getting new batches? Or are they just selling what they have left? I am considering picking up a a pair myself, one to hit with, and one to keep on my wall for collection.

Also, do the new ones play similar to the older ones?

Wilson made them for shops who are willing to buy a minimum amount.....TW did and had multiple orders. It's all new production - and no they don't play like the originals - still play nice.

they play similar enough that you know they're from the same family. the new re-issues have more flex than the Taiwan and China versions I have. The older versions are stiffer and feel a bit more solid and dampened, but my fave happens to be the new re-issued model.

Alright, thanks guy, I got one on TW last night. At $129 and an extra 10% off, I couldn't resist.

it's got that old school feel. and is a super fun hit. enjoy!

try it w/ premium gut mains w/ lux alu power crosses. this setup plays incredibly.

Too good to pass up.

Just ordered one with 16g VS gut mains (54) and Alu power rough crosses at 52lbs ( it only comes in 16L). Hopefully this string setup is not going to be too thick.

I ordered mine unstrung, trying to decide if I wanna get another. I wanna get one to play with and one to hang on my wall.

Anton, it should be fine. the PS85 has a fairly open 16x18 string pattern so i've found that 16, 16L or 1.25 and greater gauges work better in this stick.

I figured it would be pretty obvious if I said it. But I will send you an email as well, and give everyone a big hint "The Social Network".

Edit: Just saw, you do not have an email attached to your account.

I honestly doubt it, aside from the 85, the 95 was just not big enough hype-wise to bring it back. On top of that, if they bring the 95 back, they will have to bring back a whole lineup basically bc after the 95, someone will ask for another model.

Shame. The 95 has been the ONLY frame I have ever been truly happy with. I have 1 left from a stock of about 10 of them which have all been damaged/cracked etc over years of use. I'm even scared to use this 1 I have left in case something tragic happens to it!!

LanEvo 10-11-2012 05:03 PM

Just got mine in the mail. It's new.
