Petkovic with the new Pro Staff PJ (Yes it really is that subtle)

WilPro

Semi-Pro
I have a Wilson Pro Room racket that is an off the shelf Pro-Staff 95 painted as a Hyper Pro Staff Tour 95(the black, yellow, and red one). I love the racket but I am afraid to use it because I don't want to break it.
Is it possible to break a racquet by just playing it?

Usually the way my rackets break is that my hand sweats and it drops out of my hand when serving. I've broke 3 rackets that way. I've broken only 2 hitting--one was a Prince Graphite Comp XB, cracked at the throat and a Fischer Powerwood(which was a wooden racket).

Look at how much lead she's got. They clearly haven't fixed the low SW issue.



Would be useful to see some more samples, as it looks like terrible QC by Wilson again. That RF97 for example, looks well off in terms of SW...
I think she uses an old pro staff 95 mold like kohlschreiber etc

I’m sure that the good folks at TW will do a great job in measuring specs when the frames are released in September. I believe they measure multiple frames. Wish I had multiple to measure!

why did you miss out pro staff 97 eu el . humph!

Isn't the team the same mold as the 95? I thought it was just a light 95
I’m not such an expert about Wilson mould.
As far as I can see, they are very similar (if not the same).
One difference for sure is mould drilling...the Team 95 has 6 mains on bridge/throat piece instead of 8.

Ah I didn't realize the team mold was 18x20. So the 95 18x20 has 8 mains while the 95 team (only 18x20) has 6 on the throat

That said the 16x18 95 has 6 throat mains.

Yes, I was referring only to 18x20 versions of both of them.
Also, a reliable source confirmed me privately (as mentioned) that the Team is slightly thinner beamed than 6.1 95, being about 21 mm vs 22 mm.

Does anyone know if the Pro Staff 97 Black (non countervail) that is being offered by Tennis Warehouse Europe is the same version that was being sold by Tennis Warehouse US previously? It seems difficult to get ahold of a new non-CV Pro Staff 97. I guess I could just wait until September.

Link to the frame I am asking about:
From what I can tell it is the same frame. I am also in the same boat. I can’t decide if I should order a few from across the pond, or wait for the new version in September.

These are pretty low sw number i bet these new PS will have way lower TW than its previous versions. I predict around 13 or less TW
