    hi everyone! do this racquet is playing well? is it quite simular to the blx 6.1 95 18x20? i played with this frame (blx 18x20) and it was a very GREAT player's stick, a bit stiff but it was not a big deal. give me you're comments, please do not comment the 16x18 i hate 16x18 string pattern small sweetspot and too much inconsistent! thanks in advance!

    The two racquets are not that similar. The 6.1 BLX is stiffer, more powerful and heavier. The PS95 is more flexible and less powerful. Both are good racquets, but completely different. If you like fairly stiff and powerful racquets (which still have decent control) go with the 6.1 BLX.

    I agree with the message above. Theyre both totally different rackets.

    thanks for the scoop but i really appreciate control oriented frames cause i create a lot of power by myself! the only problem is that i can't demo this racquet in canada (no available) p.s sorry for my poor english, french is my first language.

    I really like my PS95 (which is the box beam version). The regular 6.1 95 is not. The ProStaff will weigh around 11.5 sotck, versus about 12.2 for the 6.1 95. Swingweight is considerably less as well. If you want to reduce your risk (since you can't demo,) there are some slightly used ones on sale through this site. It does seem like the racquet takes modifications fairly well, so if it is too light, try putting a leather grip and some weight in the head of the racquet which will allow the specs to come closer to the 6.1 and still have the benefits of a softer, more flexible stick.
