When will the new Six.One 95's be released? I'm not talking about those crappy ProStaff models, I talking about the 95's from 2010.

I'm sure you probably know that TW Europe has them at the moment.

I'm hoping more people go for these racquets to lower the demand for the the Pro Staff racquets; I need for a good price!

Another frame I had a hit with. This frame is a nice improvement over the current version.

I get it back soon. I will post a better review, but even with what I consider low-end string (what Wilson supplied for these frames as demos), it was far better that the ProStaff - which I REALLY looked forward to, and was terribly disappointed by.

Would like to go back through them with a poly' job before I decide.

I was part of the TW Wilson playtest and play tested this frame. Absolutely fantastic. Nice improvement, IMO, over the first BLX, though, obviously, everyone's opinon will differ. I plan on getting this frame.

I think the U.S. release is mid to late February.

I'm with you. Can't wait to buy. Trolling my local tennis shop who has had the demos for months and seeing if they will do an early sale.

12.25 oz, 9-10 pts headlight. Main difference, is that they brought the swingweight down from 330s to 324, which I consider just about perfect. But, obviously, being so headlight, if people want added mass in the head and a higher SW, it's as easy as adding a little lead to the head. Flex rating down slightly to 66. It felt really, really nice.

As with any update to an ongoing line, there's nothing drastic, and it all comes down to personal preference, but I think the new BLX 6.1 is great.
