    Used it for the first time the other day because I guy I was playing doubles with had one and I was curious.

    Really an incredible stick in all aspects.

    How does the Prostaff 6.0 95 compare?

    In stock form, the 6.0 95 has less power and less stability than the 6.1 95.

    PSC is one of the best sticks for serving flat bombs I've ever used.
    PS95 has a different feel which many seem to prefer, and a softer touch.

    I gave this one a brief (re)try the other day. One HBHs have never been more solid. I certainly prefer the 6.0 95 over this one purely for feel. If you spend a lot of time at the net the 6.0 is for you. If you like to chip and charge, the 6.0 is much much better on slices. The 6.1 does everything well but really requires a strong arm. There were a few versions of this of which the 6.1 si was the heaviest and most stable.

    the psc 6.1 is the racket that made me really interested in the pro staff lineup...compared to the 6.0 95, it's noticeably softer but also lower powered. definitely swings lighter too.

    even though the 6.0 95 is not as stable/solid, it's still very solid. i haven't seen one racket that was more stable than the psc 6.1.

    I'm an aggressive baseliner. Long swing, strong guy, so the "touch" aspect of the PS 6.0 and softer feel is not really an issue for me. I come to net occasionally if drawn in or off of huge shots so I just have a put away volley. I don't really "create" at the net.

    If/when I leave the Tour Diablo mid, I think I'd track down the PS 6.1 to use for a while.
