I have both the K 6.1 Tour 90 and BLX 6.1 Tour 90. Overall both are practically identical, but the BLX's feel is a bit more muted. So is this the same with the 95's? Because if both are the same, I would much rather save $20 and go with the K Factor 95.

I have both of the 6.1 95's and the same holds true. I actually preferred the BLX until I switched to Dunlop. BLX definitely more muted than K-factor though.

Do you prefer the muted feel of the BLX or the sharper feel of the K Factor?

Also I'm wondering how the Prostaff 95 BLX stacks up against the two.

BLX will feel softer and maybe better for your arm. The PS95 is much lighter than the BLX95. I do like the feel of it though, just doesn't have the plow through (at least stock)

Hey Blee,

Yes, the relationship is the same. The K95's have a crisper, more raw feel than the BLX. However, where some prefer this in the 90 (as it is already a less-stiff-feeling racket than the 95), some of these same folks prefer the BLX 95.

Myself, I prefer both the 90 and the 95 in the K. I find the K95 to have more plow, a crisper (not harsh) feel, and a higher quality paint job. YMMV.
