03-08-2009, 11:45 PM
I wanted to know if it is possible to get this racket (wilson N 6.1 95) brand new some places? I saw one on sale at a mom and pop place today. I told him to hold it until tuesday for me and said he would. So, is it possible to gt this new, still had the grip plastic wrapping on it also. Please help.

Every now and then you will read about someone finding a new one, usually at a mom 'n pop like you found, but these instances are getting to be rare. I got three of them about 4-5 months ago in a very similar situation for dirt cheap b/c they had been on the shelf for so long they were selling them at a 75% discount. I was very lucky :)

sounds like you've chosen the n6.1 over the k6.1. you should look on the bay. they show up on occasion.

Yeah, I have a used n6.1 and a used k6.1 I bought, but I saw a brand new N6.1 in a store yesterday. So, I picked it up today for a trade for my old K6.1 and 60 dollars. Not a bad trade, plus got wilson NXT string and the string job included in the 60 dollars. I'd rather buy it in store cause you can see it.

I got 2 of my 4 off of the list of craig maybe 9 months ago. Both still with the plastic on the handles, never strung.

It was a serendipitous, but it can be done.

monomakh, what do u mean it can be done??? anyway, love the wilson N6.1 never going to the K6.1 ever again.

You've chosen well. It's really hard to find them new. As stated above, they will appear on occasion on the bay. On the FS/FT forums on this board as well, but very rarely. You found them new? That's really hard to find, they've been discontinued for a while. They should have never come up with the K 6.1 95, took away all the attributes that the N 6.1 95 was good for.

Yeah, found them new from a guy who got them from a shop that went out of business. I walked into the store and saw them. had two. so I bought two and now have a new unstrung n6.1 sitting in my closet for future use. like way future use, once I use the crap out of the first one that is.

my friend has a n6.1 and its like very solid.
good power and control and not as stiff.

he strung it with big aces red 17g at 61 and its sexy hahah

I just mean it's possible. I was exceedingly lucky to get mine, particularly still with plastic on the handle and never strung.

Another idea is to see if there are any former sponsored players around who have some extra sticks. They're not supposed to sell them, but it's worth a shot.
