    Is the the PS 95 and easier racket to play than the Six One 95?

    It suppose to be a little lighter and softer correct?

    A couple years back i had some wrist issues and the six one been hard to hit forehands with (cant use as much wrist as before and my spin game is suffering with it).

    I tried a lot lighter rackets and then my backhand and serve pay the price.


    Is there enough difference between the PS95 and the Six One 95 that would be worth giving it a try?

    I think yes. Although I think heavier racquets forces one to develop proper strokes. I wonder what you mean by "wrist" though. Because the wrist is supposed to be laid back at impact and little happens with the wrist just prior and during impact.

    The part of my wrist that hurts is the outside, it makes tough to change the direction of the head of the racket.
    If it makes any sense, its hard to change the racket head from pointing down to pointing up (it doesnt hurt to do that sitting here, just during tennis sessions)

    Very different rackets. The differences between the rackets would outweigh whether one is somewhat easier (whatever that means) or a player to play with. Definitely need to demo.

    You do. Don't wrist flick/pull your arm up so quickly and abruptly on that forehand, hit more through the ball and forward, finish across the body. Which involves hitting a bit more in front.

    Your forehand is on the left. It's a guy who used to be a pro (ATP 280) on the right. Clean technique really, you have good reasons to think that. You don't need to go steeply up to generate more spin. Hit more in front with a fuller stroke.

    But back to your equipment, the weight relief is welcome if you have arm problems.

    I appreciate it.

    Probably going to order a demo and see how it feels.

    You're pretty good as a club player.
    But You will need more hip and body rotation if you want to hit the ball in front of you.

    In short, Yes, Pro Staff 95 will be easier to play with if you mean ease of swing, mainly. But the other one rewards with a lot more free power. The 95 is easy to swing but not the easiest to actually hit big.
