Hi everybody,

I found a good deal at my local tennis club, 2 brand new wilson k.6.1 18/20 for 120 each.
For sure I am going to get 2 but what are your guy's opinions because I have played with my friends wilson k 6.1 16/18 and loved it, Do they play similair at all, or is the difference to much?

Oh and I currently use the head microgel radical mp (3), would the weight increase be too much????

Any Ideas?

The 18/20 will feel stiffer and have more control but less spin and pop

Oh thanks man....

20.

if you read my threads about how i string my racquet i go wayyyy over max.
but for the 18x20 version my elbow was like screaming even when it was strung at 54.

the k6.1 have been known to be stiff and hurt the elbow. i would seriously recommend a demo, or like vndesu said, the n6.1

Nothing is wrong with the radicals, that is why I made this thread to determine if I should because Tennis warehouse sells the racket for 190 and i can get it for 120 lol......

you should stick with the radicals. there's no reason to buy another racquet if you're fine with what you've got.

It's a good deal that's for sure, it's 70 dollars of the price of most stores. I have a K6.1 16 by 18 and I love that racket, and I've tried the 18 by 20. It has less power and lower spin potential. I like the 16 by 18 better, but 18 by 20 is still a solid stick. Plus, if you don't like the rackets you can sell them for profit on ****. :)

thats a real good deal. Most likely the shop is selling them to you at their cost. I cant get one for less than 135 here in Dallas.
