    n 6.1 95 (16x18) and blx 6.1 95 (16x18)

    I've been using the BLX95 exclusively since I got it, about 5 or 6 weeks ago. Yesterday, I had a string pop at 2-2 in the first set of a tough match. I've been playing so well with the BLX that I was extremely apprehensive about having to now switch to another racket during a tough match, even...

    n 6.1 95 (16x18) and blx 6.1 95 (16x18)

    I'm not so much a power server anymore, so I'm probably not the best person to answer the question about juice on the serve. I find the weight (it feels lighter) and balance seem to fit me well, allowing me to consistently place serves really well. I feel like my first serve percentage has...

    n 6.1 95 (16x18) and blx 6.1 95 (16x18)

    Back in late Jan (I think) I started a thread that addresses some of the differences between the 2 rackets. http://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/showthread.php?t=309327 I'm a long time n61 95 "16x18" user. I started using the BLX 95 "16x18" about 5 weeks ago and haven't gone back to the n95, and...

    n61 95(16x18) users: tried the BLX version yet ?

    I've had nagging injuries which has limited my play time with the BLX over the past few weeks. However, I was able to play a few matches with it and spent more time drilling. My conclusion is that the BLX61 95 ("16x18") is less solid, but more manuverable than the nCode counterpart. And...

    n61 95(16x18) users: tried the BLX version yet ?

    I finally picked up a BLX61 95 ("16x18") from TW, strung with Pacific 16L gut at 60lbs. I'm ok with the cosmetics, though I'm not real crazy about the candy stripes. I'm a USTA rated 4.5 player, with an all around game. No extreme spins. I can hit both one and two hand backhands, but I...

    n61 95(16x18) users: tried the BLX version yet ?

    I found some feedback from a couple of n61 users in the BLX61 95 racket feedback section: http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/feedback-6195BX.html This is very promising. Comments: The new BLX 6.1 has both the N6.1 and K6.1 beat. Vibrations are gone, weight is perfect 12.3 ounces strung, and...

    n61 95(16x18) users: tried the BLX version yet ?

    I'm a long time user of the n61 95 ("16x18"). I've tried a lot of other rackets, but I haven't found one yet that has the same overall qualities as the n61. I had hoped the k95 would do it, but it didn't work out for me. I have high hopes for BLX61 95, which I'll probably order today...

    Review: Pro Supex Nano Energy (Pro Staff 6.0 Original 95 clone)

    I can't speak for "most people", but I'd like to see the video.

    Best Wilson 95 model?

    Sorry to hear about your experience with the BLX. I'm really hoping the BLX will be close to the n61 95, which is my favorite all-around racket. Like you, I couldn't get into the k61 95, which doesn't have the feel or right combo of power/control that the nCode has. Prior to the nCode, I had...

    n61 95 vs Pro Supex Nano Energy

    Any n61 95 users have any feedback on the Pro Supex Nano Energy? I did a search and didn't find much on this. I think one guy thought the Nano Energy was a lighter version of the HPS61 95. It seems most think the Nano Energy is a PS60 95 clone, but I never played that stick. So, if any...

    Any rumors about a Wilson K61 95 successor ?

    Just wondering if there have been any rumors related to Wilson replacing the K61 95? I moved from the HPS61 95 to the n61 95 without much difficulty. I've been trying to move from the n95 to the K61 95, but its been slow going. Anyone heard anything about a Wilson K61 95 replacement ?

    Old guy tries small headed, heavy racket

    I returned the demos last week. Here's a quick rundown of my demo experience. AG100. I'm sure this is a good example of how the string/string setup can affect one's demo impression. While I found the AG100 to be pretty solid with great control, I also found that it took a lot of work to...

    Aerogel 300 Appreciation Society

    I did some drilling this morning with the 4D300T outdoors on hardcourts under fairly windy conditions. I hit a lot of groundstrokes, volleys and overheads. No serves. I thought the racket performed well, but with hitting so many balls during the drills, I missed the impact absorbing and...

    Aerogel 300 Appreciation Society

    4D300T first impressions. I'm currently demo'ing 4 rackets thru the TW demo program. The 4D300T is one of them, though it was actually more like a throw-in for me. Although I've played with sub 12oz rackets in the past, my bias is toward 12oz+ rackets, so I wouldn't have considered the...
