    I've been using the babolat pure drive roddick for the last 2-3 years. Been perfect except for a slightttt lack in control. So i thought of switching to the wilson k factor six one 95, which has the required control.... So i found a pair for 35$ each, both have a lot of cosmetic wear but one has a bit more than the other... Pretty worn out i must say, BUT there are no cracks whats so ever and play with no problem.
    Is it a good buy?
    Please let me know.

    thanks, Yousuf :)

    Might be right up your alley. The K6.1's are heavier spec sticks with a lot of power behind them. The might be a decent transition and the price is definitely right!

    Price is quite good, but the sweet spot is so much smaller and the stiffness rating is so much different. I would look at the Head Youtek Speed and lead it up a little in the head.

    Control is a user issue. That said, have you tried different string setups, e.g. tension change or switching to softer poly or multi?

    Meh I think it's a good deal! They are 100 bucks off and as long as there are no cracks I'd buy em!
