I actually prefer the new reissued PS 6.0 85 version to any of the previous versions. It's flexier and swings much easier. It's much more of a scalpel than a log, IMO. I can play all day with the new one,whereas the older ones can get burdensome after a while. The feel of the new one is also incredibly sweet, IMO. It's definitely braided graphite and Kevlar. Nothing else could possibly feel this good.
