2012 Six One 95 BLX 16x18
I've owned this racquet twice, the second time purchasing through Midwest Sports. I also owned the BLX red and black version and the Hyper Carbon 6.1 one version. I'd say I'm a 3-3.5 player and motivated to get to the 4.0 level and beyond. I started seriously playing tennis three years ago and have owned many racquets during that time. Through the years you become more educated on what type of sticks and strings work for you. I came back to the 6.1 Amplifeel version with more awareness on how to take advantage of what this racquet has to offer: control and power achieved through a combination of stiffness and mass. In the past, I've had some problem controlling this stick but have found a full bed of moderately tensioned poly really tamed the 6.1. A poly hybrid will work too for those who can't physically handle a full bed of poly. A fully developed swing also helps but that shouldn't shy away 3.0 level players from embracing this stick. If you're serious about getting better, you'll learn to swing correctly
I like this racket also price. Awesome.
I've been playing with a Wilson 6.1 for almost 20 years. Every couple of years Wilson will make minor changes to the 6.1, but it's always been the standard for racquets in my opinion. As a teaching pro, I get to demo practically every frame out there, and I always stick with my 6.1's
