Horrific cosmetics. I hope it plays better than it looks.
Okay thanks for sharing...
Horrible looking thing, stick with what you know Wilson
I seriously hope this isn't the case. hands down the ugliest racquet i've seen.. Usually it takes a little bit to grow on me like the new radicals but this is just gross. What are they thinking??
yup thats it. Saw it yesterday with the Wilson Rep. Things ugly
Looks like chinese knock off...
That´s an ugly looking racquet...
Everything is spin nowadays..
wilson needs to hire someone else to design the rackets. seriously
Don't know if this is legit or not but the pic makes me think the PWS is now made with corrugated cardboard. Perhaps that's Wilson's new take on bio/organic.
I hope that's a watered down 2014 Walmart Exclusive commanding
a $50 or less price tag!
That is one ugly, dare I say FUGLY tennis racquet!!! I have the current Pro Staff 90 which I think is a rather classy looking stick but the pic you posted is a horrible aesthetic update if it is in fact true.
Wilson has done great with how they styled the Blade racquets, the Pro Staffs and Steams but this is truly a step backwards...hopefully its fake or their marketing department is lurking/watching quietly to get feedback!!!
I love almost all wilson racquets' pjs, even the steam and the juice, but this is just ugly.Why are they ruining what could be roger's last pjs.
I like my Steam's paint but that thing is hideous.
I don't know what's wrong with a gloss black and white stickers.
I doubt this is real. It looks photoshopish
Well whoever designed this, looks like a reverse Ncode paint job no? ncode has red where the white is on this racquet and white where the red is. Maybe they ran out of ideas?
Still ugly haha.
I think this is legit,heres a photo from a youtube video of dimitrov.
aw jesus what happened to that thing
Yes, I nominate PeterFig:
This PJ will revolutionize the sport itself.
Darklore009, your signature implies that Wilson changed the specs this year for the PSBLX90. Do tell...I didn't know that anything had changed from release in 2012.
If the new stick has a swing weight in the 333-336 range, I don't care what it looks like . Actually, it could be worse...like yellow or pink. Have to admit I'm not a fan of gold.
That is so FUGLY
Thanks - as long as the job at wilson includes at least half the time "testing" the racquets on court .... I'm in!!!
Reminds me of NCode which was the most beautiful Federer 90. Except they threw so much gold on it and made it look like a cheap KO.
But that thing looks old school. Not cool looking though.
You call that old school...?
I agree it does look a bit retro
Not sure why people are saying it is ugly. Looks ok to me. Just alike the Ncode with the red and white inverted.
Funny how fed is having a bad year and suddenly his racket is ugly as well........Kfactor was way uglier
Racquet looks good. Seeds of ncoded greatness
Did you colour that with magic marker yourself?
WOW, thats some serious lack of effort. Looks like total crap!
I guess since wilson didnt really come up with anything new there were just like "hey!, THIS"
its for the people that have to have a new racket so when you see them on the court, you can clearly tell the have the newest racket (even though its really the same old racket)
How about making a real change, like a 16/20 string pattern.
the "PROSTAFF" will be a line in itself.... if you notice federer is on the tag but looks like his signature is not. this will no longer be the best seller once federer switches racquets. it will sell to the guys that love the lineage.
image the sales of a federer racquet that the public could actually play? the 90 isnt realistic to most of the federer fans
I guess I am in the minority who think that it look great! The other with more red does look better though.
Looks like a Babolat
I don't think it's real, but I don't hate it if it is.
If it's really braided graphite and kevlar, then I wouldn't care.
His signature is on the tag so.....
Not at all. Babolats actually look good.
I can't imagine Wilson is releasing this. The gold lines look like they were drawn on by hand. No way will it be that sloppy.
Not the biggest fan of this paintjob...
I like the 90s that had a fair amount of black. the Hyper Prostaff 90, K90, black BLX90s
Seriously. Amplifeel's gotta go.
I'm pretty sure ALL the Tour 90s have always been braided graphite and kevlar. It's just that some of them also threw some other "stuff" into the mix, like the HPS Tour 90 had some HyperCarbon in it, the nCode 90 had some silicon dioxide molecules in it, and the BLX90 had some basalt in it.
I hope that they make another prostaff 95 frame. I'm tired of these overpowered- no feel racquets that are on the market today. Give me a midplus size box beam and I'm happy.
Amen. Heavy with kevlar.
this picture has to be a fake.
right??? impossible that wilson would make something so ugly
The 95 is still 11 oz unstrung. The PWS has a new feature that allows you to add weight using tungsten which is not toxic like lead tape. That's about all that is different from the 2012 version.
Terrible PJ. Wilson have to hire HEAD to paint their racquets........
Whatcha talking about Willis?
The new HEAD PJs aren't that great either...
Really don't get Wilson's fascination with gold. Doesn't even compliment the other dominant colors at all. The stripes at 3/9 almost seem like something they just decided to put there just to make it less NCode like. But if they ditched the stripes and used a colour other than gold it wouldn't be too bad.
Can you elaborate on this? Is it like a special slot?
This stick is so sweet and sexi.
It's transforming the game even before it's release.
Wilson is GOAT.
