Whoa was completely shocked at the build quality of these. Probably half the stiffness of the 27 adult frame but still was stable as a rock but felt like it had a ton of Kevlar . Matter of fact it felt entirely made of all Kevlar. Meaning it breathed unlike any racket I have ever hit with .
If anyone knows that Kevlar breathe thing in jammering on about this lil frame has it in spades .
The one I tried didn’t look , feel or play like a JR frame at all.
Felt expensive... nice fun hit .. I think I want one

Never heard of such a thing...it's actually scary to think a parent would buy one for a youngster.
 
Sometimes I miss the thunder-smashes of my 2.7 OS, those ones that bounce off the court and hit the ceiling - only possible with RA 84.

We had a kid in USTA 16’s in KY that balled proper with the silver 95 profile 3.7?? Can’t recall the number assigned to it. But my word . Think he actually ended up playing decent div 2 with that beast as well.. it was pretty impressive.
He was a tall lanky cuss. Rangy SOB too .
Had arms like an octopus. He’d swipe at that forehand and WHACK . Either was a winner or hit the back fence on a dead fly .. high up on the fence too..
No one wanted to play doubles with him neither . All were afraid of him catching a forehand a hair late and crack ya in the back of the head with a 150 mph ball.
He was a monster . Had the longest legs and wore his shorts real high up on his waist, like right under his sternum . so his legs looked like even longer

Wilson Profile 3.6 was the Silverish model according to my Font of Trivial Information. Pattern was 18x20 vs the Profile 2.7's 16x20 or 16x18. 8-B
Strung many a 3.6 95 for a friend....early German crystal clear poly "as tight as I could string it". What a beast!! Silver with blue, looked great with the crystal clear strings!

I ask, as the resident Wilson Profile 2.7 3.6 expert, what Jr 26 racket are you referring to?

Cool. What size is it. 95? Look through my posts if you want more info on Wilson Profiles. I think they are the best rackets ever made.
Yes! It’s awesome!! In every way looks super cool too ! Great egg head euro shape . And best thing is it’s a 95 but looks more like a93 due to egg head. I love it !
I’m playing currently with another 26 Wilson and loving it ! They made such great quality juniors back then

Dang. Somewhere on these pages you'll see my Wilson Profile 3.6 2.7 Family Portrait. Conflicted if I should your 26/jr to the photo.
