Or any 90 for that matter? I currently play with the BLX 6.1 95 (18x20) and love it, but I have a crush on the small, square beam of the Tour. Do racquets with more classic specs favor the players using a one-handed backhand?

Three guys I know who hit 2HBHs use some iteration of the Tour 90. One of my hitting partners and I both hit 2HBHs and we love our Prestige Mids, and I have a KPS88 that I use as well.

I use the same racquet as you and also play with a 2hbh. Personally, I find it to be great. My last racquet was 105sq, and when I hit a backhand it felt like I had no control over where it was going. With my racquet now it feels great.

Mardy fish uses the racquet as well, and he uses a 2hbh, so..

When I signed up, I hit a one hander. I switched to two a few months later.

I've tried to make the 2HBH work on the PS95, K90, blx90, kps88. Owned all these racquets and had to sell them. The power and spin and even control with other racquets is just too significant. The only thing that the 90 type tour box beam wilson's racquets work well on the backhand side is the slice which is well...one handed usually.

Yah, Dog somehow makes it work with the PS95, but he's a freak of nature. Yes it works on the prestige mid.

And it's not even the BLX but a paintjob of the PSC 6.1.

I use two hand backhand and have BLX six one tour.
I have 95,100 and 105 rackets but BLX small size head does not really bother me. I found that slices are really good with the racket though.
