    I am seriously considering these two racquets and I would like to hear any comparisons, comments, thoughts, etc... I see there is a very good thread on the Warrior stick which I daily read up on the excellent feedback of this new Prince stick. I am surprised that no thread has started up on the Wilson Pro Staff Six.One 100 BLX. Maybe this will be a good place to start. Looking forward to your fine comments.

    I did not hit with any of these, but there is big difference in swingweight (319 vs 304), so warrior should feel much more solid in stock form and probably have much more power too.

    That is certainly true. But I would definitely add lead tape to the handle and 3 and 9 o'clock positions of the racquet head. The box shaped of the Wilson feels great in my hands however, I do prefer the comfort of the Warrior. Has anyone else tried the Wilson PS 6.1 100 BLX ???

    I have the Wilson PS 6.1 100 BLX, I really like this stick. It is extremely easy to flick backhand, forehand. Feels like a wand to me, you do need to supply the power, for the average person may be a little underpowered.

    Thanks acura. Like you, I love the way it feels in my hands - just like a wand. What string set-up do you use? I have VS gut in the mains at 56 lbs and Prince Beast at 54 in the crosses. Please bring the comments coming on the Wilson.

    Here's my comment on the Wilson, if you want to buy any in 4 1/2 grip, I have 3 in pristine condition....Great racquet, a little light for me but definitely the easiest of the 3 versions of that stick (90, 95, 100) to play with...

    I love them. Easy to customize, perfect platform to do it with. I have lead under the grip, very smooth hitting.

    Warrior is MUCH more powerfull than the 100 BLX. The thin beam of the BLX requires you to supply most of the power yourself, making it more difficult to use for most people. The Warrior is pretty much a tweener and the 100 is a light, semi-players racquet.

    I must say that each time that I hit with the Pro Staff 100, I came away with the conclusion that it is a very easy racket to use. The low swing weight and more than adequate sweet spot add to its ease. The box beam has always been preferable to me, however the 95 version left me disappointed. There is a big difference. I would suggest a leather grip on the 100 and just a little lead weight at 12 o'clock. The control in this frame is also a plus.

    I'm like you. I demo'd the 90, 95, and 100 in Maui with the pro and a Wilson rep. I bought the 90 and the 100. The 95 just felt dead for some reason. I thought the 100 would get pushed around, but not so against the pro. When I got home I ordered 2 more and added some lead under the handle, just to give them a little more heft. Love them.

    I tried the Pure Drives for a few months, started killing my shoulder. Went back to the PS100 and all is right with the world again.
