Looks like a Head Graphite Edge and a Prostaff had a baby

hi.. one of my tennis players asked me to hit with him. I didn't have my stuff with me so he gave me a few rackets to choose from. He picked these all up at a local flea market and i chose a racket that i thought upon a quick glance was the Head Graphite Edge. I happen have one at home in my collection so I figured this would be best of the bunch. Upon going out and hitting with it I realized it was not the edge.. it is a little longer than my edge, it has no shared holes, 16x18 string pattern, a little thinner beam like a pro staff, 6 holes in the throat not 8, same paint job.. all black with the red and gold pin striping, and the only words being-"graphite" at the hoop and "midsize" on the frame above the handle.. no actual maker anywhere..and the butt cap is all black with no markings. I know many of you are saying "post a picture you idiot.." and i agree.. i'll try. if not, someone out there knows this racket

it really looks to be a clone of the ps85 without the PWS. no markings anywhere... leather grip, all black butt cap..also no markings.. just the word graphite on the hoop and then on the right side in all caps "midsize" on the frame above the grip. looked over this thing for a hint of any trace of a brand.. where maybe the paint chipped or faded away.. and nothing. gloss black with the pro staff pin stripes.. the stripes start at the grip and go all around the frame back to the grip rather like the Head Graphite edge.. this, along with the lack of PWS, is what confused me in the first place. The comparison to the Edge ends with there. everything else is more a ps85..

just played a competitive match with it.. strings have got to be 30 years old.. could still make out the wording on them near the hoop "century spartan" played surprisingly well.. served especially well.
