These rackets are undoubtedly THE most popular non-wood players frames ever made. The Pro Staff 85 has been used by some of all-time great tennis pros including Chris Evert, Jimmy Connors, Aaron Krickstein, Jimmy Arias, Mary Pierce, Steffi Graf, Stefan Edberg, Jim Courier and Pete Sampras.
Sampras used this racket throughout his professional career refusing all efforts by Wilson to get him to use newer models or at least make his racket look like a newer model through use of a paintjob on it. Federer started out with midsize Pro Staff 6.9 85 (black buttcap China version), which in late 2001 were disguised, under apaintjob, as a the newer model Hyper Pro Staff 6.0, the first of his 90 sq in headsize rackets that. Pro Staffs were originally manufactured at Wilson's River Grove plant near Chicago. In an effort to cut down on production costs and, reportedly, improve quality control, Wilson moved production to a new facility on St. Vincent Island in the West Indies.Rackets made at this facility have been assigned mystical qualities by many players mainly because rackets produced there were the only rackets that Pete Sampras would use throughout his entire professional career. In the early 90s, Wilson again moved production; this time to Taiwan and China, again undoubtedly to cut costs. The later Asian versions are also of high quality. However, purists are not convinced that they measure up to the standard set by the "legendary" Saint Vincent rackets.
