Finally found my racket
I used to play with a 99S. It was a great racket, but I found myself late for overheads and volleying hard shots to body. This racket is much faster and my overheads have improved significantly. I am getting more consistent with my ground strokes. Balls that used to go out with my old racket are now in and the movement is phenomenal. I love the soft frame and my elbow feels great even with poly now. I'd definitely recommend this one
The Wilson Pro Staff 95S is a decent stick. It truly does give access to additional spin. It is balanced very well in the weight department. I am usually a die hard babolat player (I like the stiffer frames) but I picked up a couple of these because I was curious. When strung with an 18 gauge string this stick gives you PLENTY of spin. I can take huge cuts at the ball and the additional RPM's make shots hard for opponents to handle. The only negative is the frame is not as stiff as the babolats I generally play with (however this is a personal preference) and that string movement is an issue. I know that it was clearly stated before I bought it that string movement helps create the additional spin but after every few shots it seems like I am re-positioning the string bed. I somewhat found a solution when I re-strung at a higher tension. When I went to 69lbs the movement lessened significantly. I would recommend this racket.
Pro Staff 95S
Very good racquet if you want to customize to your liking. The racquet itself in original form is on the light side for a Pro Staff, and does not have as good control or power as the typical Pro Staff racquet. It does have good spin potential given it's on the lighter side. It's also on the softer side with good flex, so you get a pretty good "feel" of the ball, plus the vibration isn't as harsh compared to other lighter racquets. Personally I added more weight at the 3 and 9 o'clock sides, along with more weight in the handle. The 3 and 9 o'clock placement increased the swingweight and plowthrough signicantly, while the weight at the handle kept the balance 8 points headlight, which is what you'd want if you want a heavier racquet but still have maneuverability. After customizing, this racquet now feels more like a traditional Pro Staff racquet, with potential for more spin. I am weary of the fact that the open string pattern does eat away the strings much faster. I use Luxilon ALU Power Rough, and a
