    If you have a good footwork, it does everything well.

    Hits with good spin but more line drive like trajectory. Nice pop.
    Long strokes needed.
    Very solid on volleys.

    I have not hit with other iterations but I heard it is one of the easiest on the arm.

    No mod needed as it weighs ~12.5 oz with an overgrip.

    Hope this helps.

    The 6.1 series is always a solid choice as long as you have nice long swings and good rhythm. Here's a lengthy review: http://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/showthread.php?t=14389 it's pretty old but should still hold up.

    I play with the Kfactor version, which plays fantastically. Plus you can still find them new online for ~$100.

    I'm a long time user of the fed racket. Seen the ncode to the newest fed racket. But the new fed racket technology hurting my wrist. So I'm going bigger but the kfactor 95 to the blx I don't like so much . I look at the spec of this one and it was good.

    Yes the kfactor is good but I don't like it spec. I like this ncode 95spec. It kinda like my new fed spec. I'm a long time user of the fed racket

    I heard that k factor version has higher SW and it feels stiffer.

    Yes it does. That is one of the reason why I don't like it.

    The nSix.One 95 is the best 95 in my opinion. It has a softer feel (especially compared to the [K]Factor line), and has a ton of control (though I played with NXT 16 strung at 62 lbs). The [K]Six.One 95 has too much pop, whereas the nSix.One 95 just controls the ball and has decent pop and spin when strung with different strings at different tensions.

    There is absolutely nothing I would fault it for except that it's obviously not as stable as any of the 90s (most noticeably at net). I also feel like power on serve could be a bit better. Could probably be fixed by adding in some weight to the racket.

    Aww. No problem. I added lead to the fed racket. So this is a good racket :)?

    Okay then.

    There are 4/4 replies so far that say it's a good racket. Must be good.

    Honestly, for a racket I would use as a main and play matches with, I would not choose any other Wilson 95.
