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.
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 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.
