Hi all,
I am a former user of Wilson Six One Team 95 which was my beloved racket till 2016 - perfect feel, great maneuverability, little bit head heavy, great volleys etc. Since 2016 I am using Hed Graphene XT Speed Pro and honestly, I did not get used to it till nowadays. It is a little bit too stiff (board like) and I do not feel a ball on a racket.

Guys, what would be your recommendations if you have to give me an advice about successor of my old Six One Team? I thought, that Wilson Pro Staff 97 or Wilson Clash 98 would be a good choice, would not be?

Thanks for your replies in advance.

The 6.1 Team will be hard to replace since it’s a lightweight 18x20. I could make all kinds of suggestions, but you may have to go up in weight to get the 18x20 pattern, since most racquets that light are 16x19. You could try the 3rd gen Pure Strike 18x20. Other ideas might be the Prostaff 97L.

Thanks for your reply. I do not insist on 18x20. It is only a kind of coincidence that I hve ended up with two 18x20 pattern rackets. My biggest concerns are weight of a racket (XT Speed Pro is maybe little bit heavy for my liking), feel (very muted on XT), nice plow and pop. Do you think that Pro Staff 97 meet this these conditions?

if you can find a blade 98L, thats the closest thing to the 6.1 team i have ever used. the regular prostaff 97 will feel heavy to you if the speed pro does.

Ok, thank you for your advices. As a past chance for XT I will try to lower tension od XT Speed Pro strings. Which strings do you recommend? I thought that ALU Power would ve suitable. Currently, The raket Is stringed 24/23 kg And I will going for 22/21.
