Ok so my PS 6.0 95 is on it's last leg. The racquet is pretty much on life support right now and it's about time for an upgrade.

I am going to demo the K blade tour (I think that's the name) and maybe the K factor (90)
Are there any Head or Prince racquets that play similar? Or any racquets at all?

I'm trying to compile a demo list.

There are many threads on this subject. To summarize, there isn't anything even close to the PS95 in terms of feel.

I personally moved to the microgel prestige pro.

yep.. nothing out there really like the 6.0 95.

The closest thing in regards to feel i would say is the k90... but it plays very differently due to the high sw and static weight.

I switched to the rds 001 mid from the 6.0 95 and have been pretty happy

my brother switched from the 95 to the AG200. When i had just started playing seriously, i borrowed one of his 95s and then once i was older went on to the diablo 93. both were pretty impressed with the new sticks

Stay away from a KTour- you'll waste your money. Demo as Donnay PRo One Int'l- it's as close to a Pro Staff 6/0 95 as you can get!

He wasnt ever going to demo the Ktour. He was going to demo the KBT.

I just made a similar switch - nothing quite feels like the PS 6.0 95 to me, but here is the list of rackets that I demo'd and my opinions

Didn't like:
Head Flexpoint Prestige - disliked the off-center hits
Dunlop 200MFIL - not quite as sharp as some other rackets I tried
Kfactor six-one team - too light

Liked:
kfactor six-one 95 16*18
kfactor six-one 95 18*20
kblade tour 93

I ended up going with the kblade tour 93... it's defintely pretty stiff, and lighter than the six-one 95s, but still has good feel and control. Doesn't get that whippy head feeling of the PS 6.0 though...

i second BAMF. i played with the ps95 for about a decade and the closest i've found was the prince tour diablo 93, which has similar feel, but with slightly more heft and flex.

A hard-hitting 5.0 friend of mine switched from his 6.0 95s to the KSix-One 95 (16X18). He said it was an easy transition.

Try Ksix-one 95. It doesn't feel the same as the PS6.0 95, but you probably get a little more surprised precision. I used to play with PS 6.0 95 in the past. Currently, I'm using both k90 and k95.

I second NYC's post. I switched to the 320 and have been very happy as well.
