    Okay I am currently demoing the Ksixone 95 and its a amazing racket. I feel like fed when using it. You can do every shot possible with it. Its just the swing weight and stiffness gets to you after few hours.

    I was wonder what other all court rackets should I try out that might be little more arm friendly but still with the same control and power as the ksixone 95?

    other rackets that I was interested in:

    LiquidMetal Prestige
    Aerogel 200 (maybe)
    Microgel (maybe)
    Wilson nsix-one 95 ( because has little less weight on the racket)

    Okay so if you guys reccomend me anything esle let me know.

  2. try the PS6.0 95 and add some lead to the head to add stability and raise the sweetspot if u hav some trouble because the sweetspot is rather low on the stringbed

    My second choice after the K95 was the Prince Hybrid Tour, very comfy. Not sure about swing weight but it sure felt a lot easier to swing. Might be fun trying out the Speedport Tour as well, which I gather has the player racket feel but feels less stiff.

    ya the new spoeed port o3 tour has pretty good ass specs, anything with that type of specs I would probably like. It's just kinda expensive ya know for a prince.

    Babolat Pure Drive probably? I think it's a pretty decent racquet to play with. I love my Wilson nCode nSixOne 95 so you can maybe try that. Arm might get a bit tiring for you after an hour or so of playing due to getting use to the weight.

    ya, im interested in the nsix-one 95 because of its lighter swing weight + less stiffness compare to the ksix-one 95

    t-fight 320 16*20 by tecnifibre could be something to look at.

    I own both the K and the N and the N is a far superior racquet in my opinion but in your case it isnt going to help your problem as I feel it swings sligtly heavier than the K and you will still get fatigued just as quick. It is softer on the arm though and much more muted.

    another option is to try the K factor with different strings and different tension. Round here most of the demos are strung with poly at fairly high tension which depending on when you get to demo in relation to the last restring, can really make a difference on arm fatigue.

    don't say that. It's not very nice.

    But i would go with the aerogel 200. It has the same feel of "go for it" that the k95 has. You might or might not understand what i mean.

    How about the k95 Team? same racquet except it's about 1.5oz lighter and has an 18x20 stringbed. Could be worth a shot I guess, and you could always lead it up a bit if its too light.

    No way its not the same racquet, i tried a K95 16*18 and a K95 team, same setup, Babolat ballistic at 55. The K95 is much more comfortable and easier to hit with. The team gives so much feedback to your arm, its crazy, it is reallllllly stiff and you can feel the vibration all the way to your elbow.

    Go ahead and get the K95, and build some muscle. I'm 15, 138 pounds and
    5'10. I have played more than 6 hours a day over the summer and my arm wasn't fatigued.

    Tennis is like any other sport, you have to be athletic, so go hit the gym!

    (The nicest way i can put it.)

    I am in great shape i play college basketball on a scarlorship, it isn't about fatigue its about taking advange of what will benefit your playing style and the way Ksix-one 95 is, doesnt take me to the level I want to be. I want more comfort.
