Great product. Really plowing through baseline strokes, feels great! Good control at net, feels solid and accurate. Plenty of top spin if I want it. Honestly best racquet I have ever owned.
Ive never heard or felt such a powerful pop come off my racket out of all the rackets ive used maybe its because im getting better at tennis but when i hit that forehand while demoing it I knew this was the one. The feel and power is what i like about the racket when it comes to serves im like eh not the best serving racket but im not that good at serving anyways. I consider myself a 4.3 player haha
Combination of Control, Power and Spin
I recently demo'ed Pro Staff, Blade, regular Six-One, and Six-One 95S, looking for additional power and spin. I FOUND IT. I love it so much, I bought 2 racquets. Just last weekend, my tennis partners commented that my shots are more powerful and many shots had big top-spin bounce which made return difficult (I never thought I could do these). I really recommend you demo this racquet.
It had a very responsive feel from the baseline but the volleys werent as crisp. Overall its a solid racquet great for generating spin
Love the feel, the spin help, control is awesome,, The one thing i dont like is how quick eats the strings out.. but once you find the right set, you will this raquet
I tried the 99s and 105s racquets last year and found them lacking in control. Also it was not easy to drive the ball when needed to put away sitters. After reading early reviews of the 95s, decided to try one. Put on a full leather grip and overgrip bringing the strung weight to 12.2 oz. It's strung with Volkyl Cyclone Tour 18 at 51 lbs. It feels lighter and is very maneuverable in doubles play, lots of control, slightly more spin, and plenty of power when you need it. No problem driving the ball out of the air or off the ground. Excellent at net on volleys. You will have to generate your own power serving, but I found more control which helped me swing away. All in all an excellent players racquet with increased spin.
The 6.1 95s is a contol/spin racquet. The control with 18 mains and the spin from a few less crosses to pin the mains down. This leads to more movement of the mains which leads to more spin. At least that's my thought. If you want a spin racquet but don't want to lose control with a huge open pattern, then this is worth a try!
I have been looking for it for many years
I demoed this racquet before and recently bought it. It is amazing racquet; a very good one combined classic feeling and modern technologies. Control is perfect, power is at right level, and spin is enhanced. Only thing you should consider if you must have top spin swing style, ortherwise it might not work for you. Also Midwestsport have very helpful demo pragma and good/prompt service.
Not a bad stick
I did a demo of this racquet. I liked the way it played and almost switched to it but it lacked some pop on my forehand which is my bread and butter shot. I have a one handed backhand and this racquet performed exceedingly well. It also generated a ton of spin on all of my groundstrokes. It lacked some heft on the volleys where you could find yourself being pushed back a little. It did really well on overheads and serves. The head lightness and overall weight of this racquet makes it so easy to move. You can whip it around and never fatigue. Overall, it is a good racquet with incredible spin.
nice racquet overall
Feels lighter than my other traditional six one, more manouverable Slightly more spin, though not as dramatic as I was expecting. Don't expect nadal level spin.
