    N6.1 95
    Mains: Lux TiMO 17 @ 62lbs
    Crosses: Gosen OG Sheep Micro @ 60lbs
    4 1/2 grip w/ Wilson White Overgrip (even though my hands are huge)

    Think I might add some more lead to the stick, I'm still 17, but im 6'5 200 lbs and I can rep out my body weight on bench. Always wanted to try a prestige with some lead, but never got a chance too....my n6.1 can hold me back from swinging out sometimes...

    Holy crap, do you play football or something? btw, if you want a tad less power try stringing the crosses 3-4lb higher. i use a similar string setup in my n6-1s

    I played football, baseball, basketball all my life, but now I just play tennis for the high school...

    Ok, thanks for the advice! For how much power I can hit with, I thought the n6.1 might be too much, thats part of the reason I wanted a prestige (and marat is my idol), but I think I should just try to tinker around with string setups. Guess we will have to see...

    i used to think that about the n6-1, but its all about the footwork and not overswinging. control's just fine when my game's clicking.

    control is great, but alot of the time on my groundies, I can't hit them as hard as I can with other sticks, because of how much power the n6.1 has, but then again I'm probably learning something from using the stick anyways....

    Just towards the top of the end of the handle and then just put my overgrip over the tape? How much do you think? Where else should I add lead to the n6.1 95? I want to add weight so its about 12.8 oz, but I dont want that to mean even more power....

    What do you guys suggest?

    i dont play well with anything from Head because of their grip shape. Technifibre grips are the same as Heads. just a heads up if you're switching from wilson.

    It´s quite big. it looks small when you get it, but when it has been stretched by putting rackets, clothing, shoes etc in it, it´s really nice.
    It´s a really nice bag, so don´t hesitate bying it :D

    Heres a little story =]

    Soo, on christmas i got a wilson tour 5 6 pack. I was very happy and everything was just fine. I took my rackets out of my old bag and put them into the new bag. The very next day, i had a tournament. I won my first match, and as i was zippering the bag, the zippers just became defective. Later that day i had another match, which i lost. The next day my dad called wilson and told them my situation. Wilson apoligized for it and just sent me a free Wilson tour 5 super 6 pack.

    Hopefully that bag does not have a bad zipper

    You should ask them to give you a win in that tournament too. You obviously lost because of the defective zipper :D

    silent gunz what racket is that? our 1st singles in JV uses it and he has TONS of them. I would think they're discontinued, but he just smashes them when/if he loses and pulls out a brand new one everytime.

    well he SHOULD HAVE been on varsity, he beat out a couple of people that were on it but he didn't feel like doing varsity b/c he would play doubles, and he wanted singles.

    I never smash frames, but my RDS's are already scratched up, because I go for EVERYTHING no matter what it takes.
