    if there was a "like" button i would already clicked it on your comment lol, the reason i ask is because Im about to buy the wilson six one tour but i still don't know if i should go for blx or stay in k factor.
    my last raquet was a wilson k six one tour but i lend it to a friend who broke it(i will never give it to anybody now,,,i know im stupid lol) but he gave me the money to buy it again.
    i see this new blx one and ive seen many reviews from tenniswarehouse and ************** racquet. it seems the only difference is that you get more feel on the ball with the blx:). BUT ive also heard the K factor six one tour gives you a more crispy feel and power(which ive experience), instead the blx doesnt have that much power:neutral:.

    BUT WHAT DO YOU THINK? BLX OR KFACTOR AND WHY?????:-?
    ps: the k is on $130! what a deal!:)

    Lower level *******s like myself complained that it was too stiff so they made a new one infused with melted gummi bears and volcano dust which became a best seller.

    i totally agree on the stiffness and stability. so that would be the 20's best reason i have had this past week to leave k and move on to blx. thanks

    Get two matched from TW, the wilson QC are all over the place, one might feel GROAT and the other will feel like a kps88 with a pepperoni pizza on the stringbed.

    Sorry, I was kidding around earlier! But time to get serious!

    Anyways, the K Factor model is not an easy find for a new one. You can take your chances by going to a larger chain store, such as Sport Chalet. Last time I checked, they still had a motherload of them left. Great prices too, because they need to get rid of them.
    Also, have you thought of getting a used one? Here on the TT Classifieds, you can find a used 6.1 Tour for around $70ish, depending on the condition! Have you that about that?

    Now, lets talk about the BLX.
    The BLX 6.1 isn't much different than the K Factor. It plays EXACTLY the same. And yes, I mean EXACTLY. It's slightly muted, but you can counter that with a crisp poly or some nice string of your choice. I think it feels a bit stiffer though... not sure why. But the biggest difference is the paintjob. Not that pretty either...
    And you're correct, the K Factor does feel more crisp because it has a more pure and raw feel.
