    I am like you tried the K95, sold (2) and purchased 2 new n6.1 95 16x18. My two n6.1's came from Canada, took 9 days to get here, but for me they are much better frames. With the K95, the rackets seems like a club, weight was distributed differently, and after a month of trying to adjust, kept coming away with a sore shoulder.

    Look on the big auction site, still a few ½ and 5/8 new ones available, but cost as much as the K95’s. I have 3 backups now, so am set and will wait for the next generation of Wilson rackets and give it another shot. The supply is drying up fast. I tried many U.S. dealers and they offered the K95 for the same price.

    If TW doesn't sell the N6.1 then I don't see a problem identifying who does. Most good retailers will suggest another supplier if they don't have the product. Fact is TW stopped selling the N6.1 when the K's came out giving me the impression TW was more interested in their relationship with Wilson than with the customer.

    I know a lot of English websites that sell them, if you have the money.

    If you do a through search on google, they are out there. There's actually a pro shop in FL that has about 14 frames in stock (4 1/2 and 4 3/8 grips).

    TW stopped selling the n6.1s because Wilson discontinued them and TW ran out of stock. This isn't about TW siding with Wilson. If you wish to blame someone, blame Wilson for discontinuing the n6.1 series.

    The fact is posting a competitor is against TW forum policy.

    I'm not blaming anybody. But I suspect if TW wanted more N6.1's they would have them. But TW doesn't have competitors when it comes to to the N6.1 and I don't think some pro shop in Florida is going to cause TW any problems. But it is their forum and their rules.

    If they are discountinued (which they are), and TW is out of stock. How do you presume "they would have them"? The supplier I found in FL simply had stock left over. Once they are gone, they are gone. Example, Pro Staff Classic 6.1. There a new ones out there, but they are not in production anymore.

    Exactly. TW has sold out, other places have not, that does not mean the TW is siding with Wilson and is not buying additional stock, it means that TW sells more than other stores do. If TW was siding with companies, then why did TW buy a stock of Head Liquidmetal Prestige racquets? If TW were siding with companies to push newer items, which seems to be the theory, then why did they do that when Flexpoint was out there? Why did they order PS 85/95s for as long as they could?
