Two of the greatest racquets ever ...
hard to believe that "newer" Pro Staff is almost 30 years old.
And yet so, so similar to the stick Federer uses today. Hmm...
Is it a St Vincent's?
Nope, and it's a 95, not an 85. ( My one concession to old age. ;-)
I just had my old Chris Evert autograph in the garage... I usually hit with it about once a year or so. I don't think I did last summer, maybe I'll take 'er out for a spin today. It's a bit warped, but still feels so solid. A lot easier than trying to use my old skis, that's for sure.
For a while I was doing "short court" and volleys for warm up with the Kramer, and then switching over to the Pro Staff once I went to the baseline and from then on. Worked out well - kinda like putting a doughnut on a bat.
When you connect with one of those old wooden sticks it is an amazingly solid/good feeling!
