I'm currently using the Wilson Pro Staff Tour 95 and they are starting to crack/break, so I'm looking for some new sticks. I've always liked the 6.0 racquets from Wilson (orginal, Tour 95, nblade) and never liked the feel/balance of any of the 6.1 racquets (original, Hyper Carbon 6.1, nCode 6.1). I was wondering if Wilson was going to release a 6.0 verson of the K Factor along with the six one K Factor??Thanks

Huh? The K-Six-One Tour, also known as the K90, is the "6.0" version of the K-Factor line. Just like the nSix-One Tour and the PS Tour 90 were. They are all essentially the same racquet from the same mold. Only the layup, composition, weight and balance are slightly different between the three but they are ALL replacements for the PS 6.0 85 Original.

Don't let the "Six-One" name fool you. The SI is 6.0 and they are based on the PS 6.0. Have you ever see one in person? They all have the same box beam as the PS 6.0, unlike the PS Tour 95 or HPS 6.1 or nSix-One 95 or K-Six-One 95, which are all based on the PS 6.1 Classic and which all have oval beams.

I was hoping that Wilson release a K Factor with an oval beam that would be similiar to the PS Tour 95/ Nblade, but still have the 6.0 rating, not the 6.1. I am still wanting to hit with a 95 sq head.

But the PS Tour 95 didn't have a "6.0" rating either, not that those ratings mean anything anyway. I mean how could the PS 6.1 Classic be rated "6.1" while the PS 6.0 95 be rated "6.0" when everyone knows the PS 6.1 Classic was much stiffer and more powerful than the PS 6.0 95?

The closest thing to the PS Tour 95 in the K-Factor line is the K-Six-One 95 Team. Buy the way, ever since the nCode line, the "Six-One" designation is just a model name, NOT the swing index (SI) rating. For example, both the nSix-One Tour and the nSix-One 95 are rated at SI=6.0, and so are the nBlade and nPro Open.
