    Hi

    I'm somewhere between 3.5 and 4.0 and play with the 6.1 blx 18x20 (2010) and would like to know how Dunlop 200 and prince rebel 95 compares to that one. I can't demo the dunlop or the prince.

    And also if it's worth buing the new 6.1 with amplifeel. Heard it's supposed to be very similar to the 2010 version.

    Also a bit curious about pure storm gt limited. But I've heard that it's very hard to play with. True?

    Many questions. If I've forgot some racket please let me know. Have heard good things about the ig prestige mp.


    Thanks

    Prince Rebel 98 and Pure Storm Team are two nice frames that might appeal to you. I say that because they are both light players rackets that feel heavier than they are and both have large sweet spots. Both have more flex than what you are currently playing with but are close in flex to the 200 and Rebel 95. Good luck and welcome to the board.

    Why would you want a light frame that feels heavy? The opposite makes a lot more sense, a heavy racquet that feels light.

    Thanks for the reply. I'll check out rebel 98.

    But have anybody tryed the DB200 and prince rebel 95 and maybe pure storm ltd gt?? I can't demo any of these right now. And if you could compare it to the wilson 6.1 95 18x20 I'd be happy.

    All of those racquets are excellent but the vantage custom 95 is better than all of those imo

    I am actually thinking about doing the opposite. I currently play with the Dunlop 200G hotmelt (95 with 18x20). Love this racquet.....incredible control and just the right amount of weight for me. Power is somewhat lacking, but I can generate enough that it works well for me. Have two of them right now. But, after 5 years or so of use, they are getting somewhat beat up, so looking to switch.

    Would like to try the Blx six.one 18x20. I think it's 11.7oz unstrung which I believe is very similar to the Dunlop 200G.

    OP: How do you like the BLX six.one? Thanks.

    I've played with both the BLX 18x20 and the AG 4D 200 18x20 and I found the BLX to be a little more forgiving. I also felt that the BLX played better with a hybrid or full multifilament setup and the 4D played better with a full poly setup. I demo'ed the Rebel 95 and for me, it lacked the plowthrough of the BLX or 4D. Hope that helps.

    The rebel and the babolat ltd are sort of opposites IMO. They are both great racquets, but it depends one what your looking for. The rebel is heavier, or at least feels heavier not sure of the specs, and has a lot of flex. There is a ton of plow through as well as spin and power for a closed pattern. The ltd is stiffer, again not sure of the specs but feels this way. I personally liked the ltd out of these 2 because I'm not really the biggest fan of flexy racquets.
