Can someone compare the power and control level of this racquet with the BLX 6.1 95 16x18?
Definitely more power than the 6.1 95. I string my 99 golds with Pacific or Klip 16g Gut mains at 60 and Iso Pro Classic 17g at 60 on a lockout. I've found the Iso is very low power and very consistent over the long haul.
