I did hit with the pro staf 95s, but didn't like it. Like the regular 95, it just seemed too flimsy, although the feel of the racquet is excellent.

Agree about the ripspin, it definitely lasts a bit longer than other strings, but not the greatest feel over a period of time. I know that Prince has a few strings coming out that are a bit thicker gauge, Have you tried any of those?? They seemed ok in some of the new Prince frames, but I haven't had a chance to try out the string in other frames.
