cause its so ugly it will kill future sales? Kind of like no allowing bad movies to be screened for critics before it's released to avoid the backlash
Braided graphite and kevlar
I don't believe this one bit...
This is it. I can confirm this after speaking to a Wilson rep today and holding the frames in my hands. They look awesome in my opinion. They're like a fusion of the current pj and the n-code, which in my opinion was the best looking aesthetically. Very excited for this!!
Sorry, but I still don't like a bright white frame carrying the name "Pro Staff". (it goes for the current bloody q-tip looking frame as well)
It should be dark and subtle, not bright and "LOOK AT ME!"
Did a nine year old design that?
I like this pj, it is obviously a nod to ncode god era fed. Bravo.
C'mon. The lines next to the PWS aren't even straight.. They could have at least taken a few extra minutes to make it symmetrical.
I believe it will look slick in person
Still not feeling a white/bright frame with the name "Pro Staff".
With braided graphite and Kevlar, a subpar paintjob can be forgiven.
yikes! scary looking racket.
Not a nice design at all. Even the BLX 90 which i dont really like, looks much nicer. Really looks like a white red lollipop.
IMO, the nicest Paintjobs for the 90 are
2) Pro staff tour 90 (black & yellow) and current pro staff 90 (white & red).
3) K factor
4) blx 90
5) 2014 ps 90.
Ugly and tasteless in every respect.
Probably the best tour 90 yet
1990's welcome back)))
This is a joke right? That's horrific.
Looks like one of those cheap beginner racquets you find at Big 5 for $29.99.
Ok, here's what I imagine might have happened:
It was "take your kids to work" day at the design studio, and they were all having a good time.
One of the kids drew a racquet - "look, I made a racquet, just like daddy!"
Then another kid came up with a red pencil and colored parts of the racquet.
Then another kid drew some lines on the PWS.
Meanwhile, in the lunch room the employees were also celebrating a co-worker's birthday; there was cake and champagne everywhere!
A kid brings the drawing in the room, and shows it off: "look mommy, we designed a racquet!".
The mommy takes it in her hand and goes "Awww sweetie, that is so cute! You kids will be great designers too one day!"
After the kid leaves the room, they all start laughing; "That things is FUGLY! Take it away, take it away!"
They throw it in a corner.
Cut out to 9 PM, 3 guys left in the room trying to finish the last bottle of champagne.
One of them looks kind of like Peter Griffin; he says: "Hey guys, guys, check it out, I'm going to write our logo on the snowy-white of this racquet drawing!"
And so he does, and even though he must have been really drunk, his aim was surprisingly good, for the yellow-gold lettering came out on the racquet just perfect.
Later on, the night cleaning crew came in, and one of them stumbled onto the drawing of the racquet.
As it was done on the same paper they used for all their designs, one of the cleaners assumed it was a real design that had gotten misplaced.
So he put it on top of the pile of new PJs that was supposed to be sent to the factory soon.
A few days later, the guys at the factory in China receive their mail.
"What is this?!? It looks like sh*t and smells like p*ss! Is this for real???"
"Look, it is not our job to question those crazy Americans; if this is what they want, this is what we'll manufacture".
Long story short, a few weeks later, the CEO back at headquarters was staring at a warehouse full of these racquets, waiting to be shipped around the world.
What was he supposed to do???
What would Homer do?

It is true , and this is the new pj.......
Wilson what are you doing!!!!!
Babolat and head coming with a very nice pj........
come on!!!...........what is that Wilson,,,so ugly ps 90 2014....
Fantastic stuff Vlad!
You guys haven't even seen the racquet in person and you're already criticizing it. Jeez, the same thing happened when the K-Factor lineup was announced.
Yes, I think the K-Factor 90 looks even worse in person than how terrible it looked in the preview pics.
i hope there will be a heavier version of the ps 95!
Sorry wrong thread, i just realized!
Don't like it... (disclaimer: haven't seen it in person). Perhaps the braided graphite/kevlar will be good enough consolation
*Fed fans not knowing Fed is using that reaction*
THATS SO UGLY. WHO WOULD EVER USE THAT.
*Fed fans knowing that he is using that reaction*
That racquet is pure beauty. Excellent design. Simply wonderful.
Looks like the ncode pj.
*Tennis fans/players not knowing Fed will be using that PJ's reaction*
That's just ugly, why?!
*Tennis fans/players not caring what Fed uses' reaction*
That's just ugly, why?!
Fanboy/girls/impersonator reacting to the PJ*
Time to use up my allowance and I predict a calendar year Slam now that it's got "Kevlar".
Wouldn't be surprised if that was the exact reason.
i think it would look ok if they had done something different at the 3 and 9 positions. not digging the stripes
The least they could do is to make it straight...
But again, all will be forgiven if it's braided graphite and kevlar.
Just exactly my thoughts on the new look! LOL!
Design reminds me a bit of the old Boris Becker Winner.
The old Boris Winner had a really beautiful sparkling PJ, one will appreciate it when it is in your hand.
Yes, back in the 80ies many rackets had sparkling pjs. Back then, pj quality looked universally better too, imho.
Looks fake IMO. I'm no photoshop expert but I think its fake.
In all fairness, we should probably reserve judgement until we get to see the actual racquet, or at least some better pics of it.
Chances are, it won't look quite as hideous as the above picture suggests.
At the very least, the colors should be better than that.
I wonder whether they will use the same paint as for the current model (matte white + glossy red).
I think the worst aspect of this design is the yellow/golden lettering and stripes.
If they just used black, it would have looked so much better (less bad).
Ok... so why aren't the lines straight? That's not going to change with better/actual pictures right?
It's real - saw some pics on the Prince Store thread - let me get the url
edit - see pics here
^^ Thanks for those pics!!!
Yep, that's still really bad... :cry::cry::cry:
Oh my goodness, it really does say "Braided Graphite and Kelvar". Will they release the actual composition? I'd like one in the 80% graphite/20% kelvar please, just like the 6.0 85.
And it looks like we have an all-matte paintjob again!
Ok, most of the silliness has been forgiven. Not sure how my BLX90 will react to this news.
Off topic, but those Prince racquets are GORGEOUS! I like the simplicity like the olden days.
Graphite and the Response look good to me.
It also still says "BLX Basalt Matrix" though...
They can put marshmellows into the frame as long as it's got kevlar in there.
Yeah Kevlar in the composition is always welcome.
