    Hi Everyone,

    Just switch from the Wilson six.one pro staff BLX 90 because of the ampifeel gave me pain to my hand. Anyway i switched to the Wilson Ncode six.one 95 16X18 and i love it, butt it not giving me the same stability my 90 gave me.

    I always added about 2G of lead tape to 12 o'clock of my six.one 90. i added the same amount to my n95 and the racket doesn't feel right. it feel less stable, so i know 3&9 o'clock are able to stable the racket but how much should i put?

    any suggest?

    Try putting .5G and then continuing upping it if you feel you need more.. trial and error is the best way to know how much you should be putting.. since everyone is different.

    I used four grams at 3 & 9 on my K95s, along with a leather grip, and this seems to be a workable setup. Others who have borrowed the sticks consider them too heavy though. Weight is about 12.9 oz. I have since switched to the new BLX PS90, with two grams in same location.

    I would tell you, but I don't want to encourage cheating.

    Why not lead it up to match the specs of the 6.1 90 you love so much.

    Should make for an awesome stick.

    Lead in the handle will help with stability without increasing swing weight.

    Have you measured the specs for both sticks already? If so, what are they? (static weight in grams, balance point in mm, and swingweight)
