Looking for a good all around racket, that will also be good at net? :)

They're both good all around but the six one 100 is a tad light for me. You may think differently. Personal preference. For me, juice

Thanks, it's a toss up between those two anyway, I need to convince the people at my local racquet shop to let me demo :P

It's a good racket. Put a good multi in there and string it at like 57 and you can't go wrong

The six one may have too little power for you.

If you like frames with good feel go with the Pro Staff 100. There are dozen of racquets just like the Juice and the Juice is the ugliest of the lot. You can always add mass to the PS if it's a little light for you. A great platform for customization.

Mike is right... not even close. The PS100 is a light players frame.. The juice is a PD + clone. Hated it... stiff... stiff... and ugly. One of my players brought it out to demo in the spring. Everyone that used it...put it down in about 15 minutes. I was one of Wilson Playtesters for the PS100. Great stick.. super feel and easy to swing. Playing it stock will be an issue vs heavy hitters. Great platform frame.. or for an aging ProStaff user... would also work for a junior with developing strokes. I loved the frame for almost everything.

I own a juice100 strung with syn gut main and poly cross. In the beginning I loved it, awesome spin plenty of power!! After about two weeks of playing my shoulder begin to hurt. I went in my goodie bag and start playing with my Head Youtek PP and my shoulder didn't hurt. Juice 100 is an good racquet but it will kill your shoulder.

If you looking for something like a Pure Drive but with a tad less stiffness, the Juice it is. The 6.1 BLX 100 is actually a lighter feeling pro staff but to me, part of getting a pro staff, is the solid and hefty feel which this racquet is lacking.

If you looking at the BLX 100, I would suggest trying the Head Radical IG S which I think is just as solid and given the slightly lighter weight, you can do a bit more customization to it.
