    Hi Guys,

    I currently own one K 6.1 95 which i got like in end july. I was having high hopes for this racket but so far i have been disappointed. I realise i lose a lot of control esp when i hit near the upper string bed, it really has a horrible dead spot. I strung it with technifibre red code at 60, changed the original grip to leather grip,.
    The racket is definatley one of the best solid racket Ive hit and it packs a heavy ball without a doubt. My previous racket was The n 6.1 95 team which is leaded to 340 gramm and I tend to have better control and much less miss hits as well so most pb i will go back to it if I still cant get the groove on the K factor.

    Just want to know if other k 95 users have the same prob as me?:)

    I strung mine with full poly Kirschbaum super smash @ 55. It felt a little stiff for the first 2 weeks and after that it feels great. Best racquet i have used so far.

    Try a softer string strung lower...it could give you a sweetspot.

    go with the 18x20 version...problem solved :p I used to hit with ncode 95 16x18 and it was great and serves and volleys but groundstrokes were loopy and sailing long without much control so i go with denser string now and ball now is more flat with depth and control

    I had the 16x18 for a few months. It felt to unforgiving and gave me shoulder problems. I used a Wilson NXT strung at 58. Any higher and the whole racket felt like a board and was horrid till the string loosened. The racket had a nice feel when it hit the sweet spot but off center shots were very uncomfortable. The lack of control was also a bit of an issue for me.

    I am seriously gonna considered that, hows th esweet spot for the 18*20? Is it bigger than the 16*18? I used previously the n 6.1 95 team 18*20 the lighter version. Great racket but weight was always a prob. :)
