Played it today, I felt that it's not as stiff as 72(labelled by TW), it plays a little bit softer than ProStaff 6.0 95 with better feel. Does anyone also has such feeling? Is PS 6.1 95 really as stiff as 72?

I haven't played a 6.1 for a long time now...Although it may not feel like RDC 72, I thought it was considerably stiffer feeling than the 6.0 95 (and am certain many will agree), all things equal. Check the strings to see if there's a difference in this variable (type & tension). As an extreme example, a 6.0 95 with 15g poly @ 65# will certainly feel stiffer than a 6.1 with 18g gut @50#... ;-)

It is a pretty stiff frame... much stiffer than the 6.0 95, especially in the hoop. If you played with an old one, it might have broken down enough to feel more flexy.
