I love my K6.1 95 16 by 18. I know people say that the NCode is so much better, but I can't get that since they don't sell it anymore. Voice your opinions about the new K6.1.

Well, it's not so new anymore, but it is a great stick. Slightly stiffer than all previous versions, with the exception being the 6.1 Classic, and slightly more powerful, yet no loss in control. My biggest gripe with it is manuverability; I think it could use some more weight in the handle, but, thank god for lead.

I use the 18/20 version. Love the power and solid feel. The bite the ball gets when hitting slices is amazing! I have stocked up 5 frames now :)

Great racket. I had been playing before with 6.1 Classic and the Ncode. But when my friend lent me K6.1 (18x20) I knew it is the racket for me. I immediately bought two. Stable as a rock!

solid as a rock and a bit softer than the 16x18, with better feel and much better control, at least for me. Time to buy a few and keep selling off my other frames... With a little lead at 10 and 2 and an overwrap it suits me like a glove.

Love my K95 also. Plenty of control and very solid.

I'm an admitted racquet junkie (I have WAY too many racquets), and through other players and a couple of club pros I know, I try out a lot of different racquets out of pure curiosity.

But, even though they have been all around me for years and I have had easy access, the K6.1 slipped through the cracks.

But, recently I finally hit/played extensively with an 18x20 version , and all I can say is that it is a fantastic frame that really suits my game. SO much controllable power, great "plow through" and more user-friendly than the 12.3 oz weight and 340 SW would suggest.

This was a pretty scratched up frame with no structural damage, which I can buy for $50, and I probably will. Plenty of spin even though it is an 18x20. Stiffness is high, but I don't find it harsh at all. I love it. I was very surprised how well I served with it. I have always used heavy racquets, but I sometimes have trouble serving at my peak with a heavier frame. Not so with the K6.1

I have a chance to get some cheap, very good-condition demo K6.1 frames for around $90 and the offer is enticing (I'm not the type who needs brand new, unblemished frames, as long as there is no structural damges).

I will have to try out the 16x18 to compare. If all goes well, I could be a K6.1 player by summer and finally put my ever-rotating lineup of frames to rest. I need to settle on something and give the rest of my frames to the park district for their summer programs, or sell them.

Please email me if you need new ones at close to the demo price. I have a source just bought two. The guy is legit and really great. He gets closeouts and bulk deals and passes them along. harryzweben@yahoo.com

and stocking up. What a tremendous frame in every way. I was expecting it to be too stiff and boardy for me. Boy was I wrong; with soft string it is exceptional.

I really like the K6.1 but I recently got my hands on an N6.1 and am trying to figure out the subtle differences and get a feel for both.

The K6.1 is stiffer (Flex rating of 69 versus 65). Wilson took out the Kevlar that used to account for 15% of the N6.1's composition. The N6.1 was more similar to the KSix-One Tour 90 (Roger's racquet) that still is 20% Kevlar. The current K6.1 will feel slightly more like a Babolat frame.

Did you played with k6.1?I played a lot with babolats but K6.1 95 or K6.1 90tour are great feedback racquets,not even close to the boardy feel of apdc or pure drives.

Love the K95. Plenty power, stability and control. It is a bit stiff so I am not sure how long I can keep my arms happy with it.
