negged for lack of pics
Pics or BS.
Pics would be most likely deleted anyway. :neutral:
Will there be a 16 x 15 Pro Staff?
Amen! I'm looking for the same stick!
I counted 16 crosses and couldn't count the mains... Can anyone confirm or
Amazing paint job btw!
I think the one dimitrov was trying is the 18x16 pattern. I saw him trying the 18x16 with prostaff 95 paint job during his practice(first day of usopen qualify).I didnt count the strings, but I was sitting right behind him, and i heard him asking his coach what pattern is the racquet, his coach reply 18x16.Dimitrov even commented that it has so much spins.
are you saying people that post on this forum don't have a life? No need to be upset just because you mom doesn't let you on the internet
According to another thread, every time an article is written in a foreign language, he just goes and learns the language in order to read it, rather than do the absurd thing of using Google Translate or the like. So try not to upset the polyglot genius; we should be grateful to even have his small presence here.
So are all the 2012 wilson racquets getting new paintjobs/tech for 2014, or is it just a spin year since there were slightly different cosmetics introduced for 2013?
Ok girls. Just received my batch from wilson. I will post a couple of pictures soon.
Two thing I'd love Wilson to update in their next line of racquets would be to firstly make the pro staff 95 more of a players frame in terms of specs including heavier swing weight and static weight whilst leaving the open string pattern. Secondly I'd absolutely love them to create a new 93sq inch frame with a box beam and an open string pattern for good spin potential aswell as specs that a players frame would have ie heavy static and swing weight with a sensible headlight balance at 7-10 points.
I agree the PS95 needs an increase in its weight and swingweight. Wilson could release the 93 inch box beam prototype that Dimitrov has been using, but I doubt they will
If anything I just want the PS95 to have the same specs as the Six.One 95.
Meh. PS95 with the specs of the 6.0 95 Original. Now we're talking.
Just put a leather grip on it and some lead in the head and you have your specs.
What's so tough about that ??
It'd be nice if they brought the Pro Open back. The Juice has no feeling in comparison.
I was glad theycontinued it when the Juice came out, but the pj was horrendous
I noticed you got some racketspec skills. Do you know how i can make a racket that play likes wilson 6.1 blx team 289 gram but weighs about 310 gram?
I don't understand your requirement. If you like the way the Wilson plays @ 289 g, what's the problem with it being 289 ??
You can't make a racquet 20 grams heavier and still have it play the same, 20 grams is a significant difference in a racquet.
Any news? If you saw the new Wilson catalog, there will be specs of the new frames. Could you look for Pro Staff 95 specs? Thanks.
I like the feeling of it. Swings fluent and nice manouvrable. But really dislike weight: for serves and strokes in general too less weight for stronger hits.
I'm testing prostaff 95 this week.
Well I just want it to have the same heft as the Six.One 95. Did the 6.0 95 Original have that heft?
Id be interested to hear the specs on the ProStaff 95. Hope they make it a bit beefier.
It seems the TW testers think the new Blade S sucks, as their review and associated rating scores were very low across the board. I think and hope they make some changes to the Juice line, as it really hits the sweet spot for today's tweener-based modern game. What I would like to see is the following:
- Nix the JPro (great racquet but couldn't find a market)
- Narrow the J100 beam a little bit and increase the swing weight to at least 320.
- Change the cosmetic's but retain blue base color, just not baby blue.
- Lighten the swing weight on the JLite, as it swings heavier than the J100 and what's lite about that? Juniors will jump all over it if the change is made.
- Eliminate the J108.
Just my two cents....
The 100L is almost an ounce lighter than the normal 100. A racquet needs either mass or needs swingweight. The Juice 100s are selling very well as they are now. One can always add weight to the Juice 100. It has mass so the swing weight does not need to be as high for the average player.
Yeah, more or less.
That's odd. I'm actually enjoying the Blade 98S. I play with the PS95 but periodically demo racquets to test what's out there, just for the knowledge and being able to have suggestions for students and players with questions. The free power off the 98S is nice and I enjoy the extra spin. The one downside is I think it would be better with say the 15x16 of the steam models, but for what it is, I enjoy the racquet.
Not a 90. It would come with a leather grip, and even though some have overgrips on, the beams seem a bit thick for a 90. What you're looking at is likely a Blade model (one of them even says Blade on the side of the throat).
Just to confirm: the stick Dmitrov is using in the pic is indeed the new Prostaff (or at least the new paintjob).
Doesn't look too bad in person now that I look at it. But still not even close to a favorite PJ.
That ProStaff label at the racquet head is quite ugly....
The 95S (309g) is going to be even lighter than current 95
Oh... looks like there will be 2 versions of the 95S, one at 313g like the current one and one at 309g?
Oops.. now I see that one is a PS, the other one is a SixOne... please ignore my previous posts.
Am I the only one buying 3 prostaff 95s frames and adding weight?
Very excited for 2014
Will there be a PS 100?
how do you customize your 95?
I think it is time to drop the 6.1 / six one title.
Rename them as below and go back to using the Swing Index scale on each individual racquet models within.
Wilson Staff: 6.1 series, oval beam.
Wilson Pro Staff: 6.0, box, rectangular beam.
I put weight at 3 and 9, and then in the handle to keep the balance point the same! Goes from 11.0 oz to 12.0 oz, plays like the 90 but with a more forgiving headsize. It's more stable... I love it!!!!
The blx prostaff 95s is gonna be awesome IMO!
u guys know when these will be release?
Just saw the new 6.1 95 16x18 and 18 x 16 and the paintjob looms awesome. The gold stripes at 3 and 9 look better in person.
I was told they would not be for sale until January.
Pro Staff line will be available in January. 6.1's available in November
Any new info about this line? I'm hoping for a lighter version of the PS 95 myself. Something like the 6.1 95L but more headlight.
When you drop down to roughly 312g strung like with the 6.1L, you don't need it to be all that HL.
The overall mass is so low that it's not an issue to have more of it towards the hoop. My 6.1 team is 1pt HL but it swings fast as it's so light. Still really stable against big hitters as well.
The Bro Staff 100 is similar, great control and almost the same specs.
But making it more headlight leaves room for customization. With a close to even balance, you add one strip of lead and BAM, head heavy. I like some wiggle room.
