I've hit with a couple of "Originals" and I've owned the Pro Staff Tour 90, nCodes, K-Factors and the BLX and. And none were like the PS85.

The factory in chicago that started making the prostaffs for him just weren't the same to him. This just indicates that there are differences in the make of the racket. Unless Sampras was just OCD.

Well...I started with a TW PS85 with full gut. LOVED it! Got a chance to buy a StV. Loved that too. Picked up a black butt China PS85. Too flexy and balance is off.

So there is a difference. Whether you prefer a StV or another version is up to you, but there is a difference between the versions.
4 PS 85 StV, 2 PS StV 110, PS Chicago 125 & 110, 3 Bab Aero Origs, 2 KPS88, 2 Snauwaert ATP Woodfordes and 7 Wilson Woodfordes, Complete Hi-Ten Set
