The BLX Pro Staff Six One 100's since May have been a game changer for me.

    Been using them since may. I have some lead tape under each grip. That's it. For some reason, this size, weight, and balance has been perfect for me. It's knocked out my Radical Tours, Ti Radicals, and my Prince POG's. I waited 6 months to make sure before I sold them. Now they are mostly gone. One TiRad mid left.

    Love the feel, the control, and the looks of them. It's nice when you find a stick that just seems right. Good luck to everyone in your quest.

    Thanks for sharing; what string set-up do you use, and what is the overall weight of each racket after you add lead? Am I right to say you also added a leather grip?

    I know what a nice feeling one gets to find a racquet that feels "right". I just found mine after three frustrating years. I can't say I play that much better, but liking the way a racquet feels and the sounds when hitting balls puts a smile on my face. Enjoy!

    I just recently discovered this awesome stick, too. I could not agree more! I am of a similar age, and after trying numerous racquets from PDR's to Radical MP's, I connected immediately with the BLX six.one 100! Awesome feel, easy to swing, great pop on serves, groundies, and volleys. I'll be selling my other bats, too! Blx six.one is here to stay!!

    i liked the ps 100 on all shots but overheads and serves. the lack of mass in general i think made any vibrations go straight to my arm and elbow.

    too bad though because in all other aspects it's a real sweet stick. crazy spin with it's super open string pattern. the spacing between strings is really open. which also makes the sweetspot feel huge. lots of pop and great control and ridiculous maneuverability. probably the most maneuverable stick i've played with. oh and for an old fart like me - the paintjob looks classy and doesn't scream for attention.

    always nice when you find a stick that just plain works in all facets.

    Yeah, specs on that one looks about perfect!
    I'm on DunlopAero500's right now, goofing around with MicroGelOS.
    Prolly can't handle any white racket, though.

    Those sticks are pretty sexy looking! I wish they weren't so expensive :/ I hate to just drop $650 for a few rackets and a bag.

    Don't know how you feel about used racquets but you can find them sub 100 bucks on the bay.

    If I'm gonna buy more than one, it will be brand new. Used ones would feel like handmedowns. Thanks though. I still don't know what I want anyway

    Not sure about the superlight SW of that racket. It can work for sure against moderate speed balls, but would be tough against harder hit shots.
    I know it can hit hard shots, but only against medium and slower balls.
    I guess the weight under the grip helps a bit.

    I just played with my six.one 100 strung with Klip Nat gut full bed, strung mid range. Superb feel! I have 2 others, 1 with Rip Control, 1 with syn gut..... Nat gut is the way to go in the six.one 100!
