I haven't played in almost 20 years and got involved again since my daughter has been playing USTA Junior Tennis. I used to compete with the original ProStaff 85 in the 80s. This racquet plays very similar and has the same heft and balance. I prefer a heavier racquet and all the modern racquets feel too light. This picks up where my old PS85 left off and makes me feel like I never took a break.
