    I was told by a wilson rep that the wilson six.one 95 line is being discontinued but when i look in the 2013 booklet of wilson products its still in the book, so im trying to find out if they are really being discontinued.

    Discontinuing the 6.1 line would be the single biggest mistake in Wilson history.

    BTW, lame username OP. What is this, middle school?

    Totally agree, IMO if that happens the will lose a big percentage of their sales.

    They would never ever do that.

    Getting rid of the 6.1 is like getting rid of the Aero line from Babolat.

    It doesn't matter. The pros that like them will keep getting paint jobs. I don't think the 6.1s have been selling that great.

    Before I actually became a PS 95s and 6.1 95/95s owner, I thought the Wilson lineup was very confusing. Add to that the PS 97 addition, confusion bonanza. That being said, the actual frames make solid sense when you play them, i.e. I totally get why they are different families for the better player: blade, ps95, ps90, ps97 and 6.1 95.

    The 6.1 95 (all string pattern versions) along the PS 95 (reg and s) have become my fav frames, placing my Prestiges in the for-sale section (not here though).

    That being said, I also understand why Wilson doesn't want three "pro staff" (or thereabouts) families, so my guess is that both the PS95 (reg) and the whole 6.1 family will be discontinued. I also think the PS 95s will become a PS 97s, esp. if they get Dimitrov back on the p(l)aylist :)

    I've played with the K Factor and first BLX Six.One 95 and they feel very stable with good response. Perhaps one of the best all-around racquets out there. Whether for serving and volleying or baseline play, it has the heft for any where on court with relatively good maneuverability. I also really liked polyester strings on my BLX (Tecnifibre Red Code 16).

    It has been stated that the current 95's are continuing on through this year, but we'll see later on.
