    Oops, I made a mistake and started a thread about the 6.1. I meant 6.0. Here goes...

    I've been using the PS original 6.0 95 for 15 years and want to move on to something new.

    Want to get more angles, and little more spin. Still love the flex and power and weight of the 6.0. My head is spinning reading all the reviews.

    Also want something in the $100 (or less) range.

    The Fischer M Comp 95 looks interesting. So does the Head Microgel Radical Extreme Pro, Becker 11 and the Yonex RDS 002 Tour.

    Any other former original Pro Staff original 6.0 95 players out there with hot tips?

    Pro Supex Nano Energy. Weight, balance and mold of the PS 6.0 95 with the more open string spacing of a 6.1 great frame.

    Donnay Pro One MidPlus.

    Also, Fischer has a couple of nice, flexy frames - the one you mentioned, and the M Pro #1.

    These would be decent racquets to try coming from the Pro Staff 6.0 95.

    More spin, more angles? Have you tried poly strings? Assuming the racquets and grommets are alright for more re-stringings.

    +1 on the AG100 (or AG200 16 x 19, if you must have 95 sq. in.)

    me too, i had the 95 for about 10 years, love the feel of the aerogel 100, my hitting partners say i'm more consistant and hit harder with the new frame.(Not that they like that when playing against me of course).

    Thanks for all the suggestions. I never would have looked at the Dunlop Aerogel. I'll check it out.

    The Head Youtek Speed 18x20 has some pretty good looking specs too. Two hundred bucks for a racquet stinks. I used to get racquets free and haven't had to buy a racquet in 15+ years. :confused:

    200 bucks does stink, plus 15 years with this classic frame begs the question: what have you tried? Strings of various type, loose or tight bed, lead tape etc... this alone would allow you to tweak angles and spin.

    Assuming you've tried this and still wish to move on (as I did with the 6.0 95) I'd suggest a smaller Wilson head size, probably 90, or other Wilson 95's of a more recent generation in the 6.1 heritage that are affordable and in your price range. 6.1 ps classic is an obvious suggestion as is any of the ncode or ncode 2 95s you can nab pretty cheap... k factor, even second hand, is probably out of your range

    P.S. 85 change

    Still love my ProStaff 6.0 85, but recently switched to Yonex RDS 001 90 (2008 model). Good spin, control......plus easier availabilty if I need more.

    I've done all that and keep two in my bag strung with synthetic gut and two with poly. Unfortunately the other 6.1 swing like logs. The Hyper Pro Staff 6.1 from some time back has good specs like the 6.0 but I'm looking for a change.

    I'm going to demo some of the racquets that have been suggested. Thanks for all the advice!

    I suggest to pick up and demo the KPS88 because it is the same size exactly as the 6.0 95, just thicker head frame making the stringbed size smaller. I think you'll be impressed - but you may need weight in the handle. Unfortunately it's more than 100 bucks, but you'll nab a used one for cheaper if it's the right fit for your game! good luck!

    I do not agree, you can hardly get a more different stick... Ror a start, the swingweight is huge on the 88, 6.0 95 has very low sw, open pattern, thicker beam, more unstable...did you mean the (% not the 95? I mean you said same headsize but thicker??????

    I had 6 of the Wilson 6.1 Pro Staff Tour 95 Edberg racquets and tried anything Wilson (K95, K Blade Tour/98) and a lot of Head and ended up with a Babolat Pure Storm Tour GT. COULDN'T BE HAPPIER.

    I know it's more than $100, but at least give it a try.

    I settled on the Fischer M Pro #1 98. Swingweight is identical to the PS 6.0 95 I had been using but the racquet is just a little lighter. Has more spin available too. Not to mention it is insanely comfortable/soft with awesome control. What a great racquet.

    I also got some of the M Comp 95's but the swingweight is a bit much. I may add some weight to three of my M Pro 98's to get them right in the middle between the stock M Pro and the M Comp.

    Thanks for the ideas though.
