I needed to perpetually hold back to some degree with my 6.1 Classics to keep my strokes down on the court, so in my case, the extra control that I found with the softer racquets sort of enabled a more aggressive game.

No arguing with the snappy respose and volleying authority that comes with a stiffer frame (that also has the heft of a Six.One). I'd probably still use mine if I didn't get better control and consistency from a softer alternative. I think I offered the Volkl 10 series models for consideration because it sounds like you want that Wilson performance in a more arm-friendly layout.
This is why I went Volkl. The stiff Wilson stuff has its fun moments, but longterm negative pains. The Volkl let me swing out, so I had more real-world control and didn't have to worry about restraint so much.

I wouldn't get uptight about the lesser flex. It's not much difference, in practical terms. I remember seeing the math on these things and it's irrelevant in terms of your ball's pace.
