    Hi everybody,

    I found a good deal at my local tennis club, 2 brand new wilson k.6.1 18/20 for 120 each.
    For sure I am going to get 2 but what are your guy's opinions because I have played with my friends wilson k 6.1 16/18 and loved it, Do they play similair at all, or is the difference to much?

    Oh and I currently use the head microgel radical mp (3), would the weight increase be too much????

    Any Ideas?

    The 18/20 will feel stiffer and have more control but less spin and pop

    if you read my threads about how i string my racquet i go wayyyy over max.
    but for the 18x20 version my elbow was like screaming even when it was strung at 54.

    if i were you id try to get the n6.1 95 16x18

    the k6.1 have been known to be stiff and hurt the elbow. i would seriously recommend a demo, or like vndesu said, the n6.1

    Nothing is wrong with the radicals, that is why I made this thread to determine if I should because Tennis warehouse sells the racket for 190 and i can get it for 120 lol......

    you should stick with the radicals. there's no reason to buy another racquet if you're fine with what you've got.

    It's a good deal that's for sure, it's 70 dollars of the price of most stores. I have a K6.1 16 by 18 and I love that racket, and I've tried the 18 by 20. It has less power and lower spin potential. I like the 16 by 18 better, but 18 by 20 is still a solid stick. Plus, if you don't like the rackets you can sell them for profit on ****. :)

    thats a real good deal. Most likely the shop is selling them to you at their cost. I cant get one for less than 135 here in Dallas.
