    it's popular stick between college players but only in 18x20.
    Pros dont use BLX or K, but earlier 6.1 versions/custom molds and usually tighter pattern for more control; less power.

    Mardy Fish was using a 6.1 95 the last time I saw him play in Newport. I've also seen several doubles killers use different generations of those frames over the years, but not quite so much lately.

    Pretty sure that Max Mirnyi, Jonas Bjorkman, and Wes Moodie have all been S&V demons with those racquets. Stan Wawrinka used them before his recent switch to Head. Pretty sure Robert Kendrick swings them, too.

    Fish uses a 6.1 18x20. It can be seen in Drak's professional stringing room thread in Stringing techniques forum.

    I remember Gabashvili using one 16x18.
