    I was hitting with a 6.1 and fell in love with it.

    and since TW doesnt sell them anymore, I was wondering how much of a difference is between that and the 6.0 95?

    the 6.1 has more power and the 6.0 has more control.

    I like them both.

    The 6.1 is stiffer and more powerful being a thicker (and oval) beam as mentioned above. Not that the 6.0 is all that flexible, mind you, but it being thinner and a flat beam makes it more control oriented.

    The difference is the proverbial "night and day".

    If you like the PS 6.1 95, don't get the PS 6.0 95, and vise versa.

    really? because i liked both. the 6.1 95 was actually what got me into the wilson prostaff line....starting w/ the ps tour 95 (which is actually nothing like a real prostaff).

    the psc6.1 95 is stiffer, more powerful, definitely swings heavier, and is more stable than the 6.0 95, but the 6.0 is much more maneuverable, has imo a nicer feel, and looks nicer. one thing that both rackets share is a nice clean feel (the 6.0 95 more so) and they are rather comfortable for their stiffnesses. the psc 6.1 and ps6.0 have stiffnesses of 71 and 67 respectively...and honestly...they dont feel as stiff as that.

    I guess my point is that if you really like the PS 6.1 Classic then you should get a PS 6.1 Classic. Don't get a PS 6.0 95 thinking that it might be the same as a PS 6.1 Classic. To me, they are two very different racquets from two separate racquet families. The PS 6.1 Classic swings a lot heavier, is much stiffer feeling, is much more powerful, and has an oval beam instead of a box beam which gives it a very different kind of feel IMHO.

    yea...i agree with you...they're definitely not similar...

    but im just saying that just because you like one doesnt mean you'll dislike the other.
