    Hi folks,

    I'm currently playing with a FXP Fire and I have chosen this raquet because when I bought it, I didn't really have a specific style of play and it was a very polyvalent frame.

    However, I'm now a S&V and with spinny groundies and I'm searchinf for the best frame. I was thinking about a Prestige but the 18X20 pattern can be a problem. Moreover, I think that the 6.1 tour can be my Holy grail but the weight scares me.

    So I'm wondering if I will be able to handle it, especially in 3rd set...But I use to play with a M-fill 200 and feel no problem about the weight, but on my backstroke when the ball came very fast !

    What do you think ?.

    People should use a frame as heavy as they can.
    However I play with head radical and it's a good frame for s&v, 'cause it's controlled oriented and not too heavy. Imho also wilson six.one team is very good. I'm waiting for a test wiyk the new kblade, I had a demo with a ncode version and it's very similar to radical.
    Bye

    what made you change from the mfil to the fxp fire? did you have spin problems with the 18x20 bed of the mfil? big jump from a fire to a k6.1 tour; i'd maybe demo some racquets in the middle of that range (ntour/ktour, kteam, kpro, even the kblade 98 if you are set on wilson)
