    Hi guys,

    this question just suddenly popped into my head and I really wanted to know the answer so I'll throw it out and let the forum tell me all about it.

    Thanks

    They're completely different rackets. The 6.1 (ProStaff) is a players stick, head light, and the 6.2 is head heavy (Hammer). The hammer is a lot stiffer and will provide more power with a smaller swing, where has with the prostaff it's more flexible and you need a longer swing to generate your own power. Don't go by the point system even though there is a .1 differential it doesn't mean anything. Reason why Wilson did away with the whole point system, because it really didn't make much sense when comparing rackets side by side.
