What are the specs on the left one?
Headsize 95 sq
String pattern 18/20
Weight 332g unstrung
Balance 12 PTS HL
some of my collection
That new Six.One is so sleek.
Where'd you get it from? I don't see it listed on TW or TWE?
Has the radical 260 a muted feel? I need opinions, because mine feels so muted and low powered that I start to think that something is wrong with mine .
Strings: toalson syn gut, mid tension...in other racquets (eg yonex super rd 95 and rd7) feels soft and mushy, so I m sure the strings are ok
I got it from tennis nuts. Not sure why it is not listed elsewhere, not even on the official Wilson website as far as I can see.
Also Id like to point out that my 260 feels exactly like my i prestige mp (with toalson syn gut too), VERY muted and low powered
I have the 280 -always same strings-, and despite being 58RA, it has more power than my 260 and my i prestige.
Is this possible?
Yes, I found it to even have more power than the XT Prestige MP.

Taken when I use to admire my racquets - and spent time for them on Photoshop!
I don't have any of those any more (except HIGPMP).
And now, I take pics of racquets just before place them for sale!
The honey days are over...
Very Head light collection.

Nice way to present your racquets
That's what I like about tennis: It's a hobby that is not restricted to actual court play.
Dunno man, that Blade 98S is pretty Head Heavy

Illegal dampener, quick arrest him!
It maybe ok.. it has a isometric head.
I would prefer an isotropic stringbed.
My Six.One 95 S collection. I stocked up since it looks like Wilson won't make any more Six.One's with an L5 grip, and there's no indication that this string pattern is coming back.
My radical tour was as low powered as a racquet could get. And almost in volkl muted Territory. I suppose they are similar.

You're WAAAY too commited to one racquet
Seriously though, 18 95S?!?!

It works. It's actually my least favorite 6.1 paint, but I found a setup that's a match for my game. 18 is more than I need, but there's something comforting in that.
The 6.1 16x18 is my next favorite, and you can see I have a few of those as well in the rest of my collection:
I have two of these and I noticed a differnt hue in color between the two. The one on the top of your pile there has a goldish tint where the others are a more pure white. Did you notice this as well?
I bought the top two at launch, and the rest were manufactured a year or two later. I've noticed a definite difference, with the new frames being whiter. I hope, at least, that it's a change in paint and not dirt/oil from my hands. A paint change is the much less disgusting explanation.
The new racquets also shipped with rounded butt caps, while the original batch used the squared-off Pro Staff style with a "W Spin" insert.
Can you do a tutorial on how to do that?
I love old WW2 planes.. P51's so I did my blade in a P51 color scheme. I don't use it, but it was fun just to paint it up.
Are those Dunlop AG 4D 100s? Brings me back.
