[Stringjobs & Specs] of Pro's using Wilson 6.1 95 versions

Hall of Fame
I plan on gathering the strings, tension, and pattern of pro players who use iterations of frames descended from the Wilson 6.1 Classic 95. Feel free to point me to any I that are missing or have changed over time.

I'd also like to gather RDC specs of the same players, though it is less likely to be as complete a list.

Really awesome idea for thread guys, if you need anything from me to help gather info I'm more than happy to help
Thanks! Feel free to share publicly or privately any you know. I'm just searching the board. Ideally we'll have a date associated. Lists of players with no info are in spoilers above.

You should add a length section. Tim Henman for example played with 27.5 inch racquet (not at first but later on)

There are a number of solutions to the 6.1 95 18x20 riddle in this thread. I am now playing BHB7 1.25/Sensation 1.30 @ 45/45.
Watching Evans and Sousa duke it out right now. Anyone know Evans tension with Lux/Sensation in the 6.1?

@uk_skippy you’re my only hope!

... well not really but would you happen to know what tension Evans runs?

That makes sense. I am tempted to put Gut/poly in one of my 18x20’s to see what it is like. The poly/sensation was all good until hit with some 5.0 players on my team.

I think it was poly/gut evo uses. I’ll try and find it this evening. I need to experiment more with gut/poly too.

EDIT. Found it.

Evans still with gut crosses ~49lbs
Wondering if if that might be my best bet. Full poly at 47-48 feels stiff and lacks power. Poly/Sensation feels dead when I generate a good bit of racquet head speed hitting a ball with a lot of pace coming at me. Poly/gut is the hybrid I see most often with the 18x20 frames.

In the 6.1 18x20 at 45/45 the poly/sensation still feels stiff and really low launch angle. Talked to a pro stringer and he said drop the Sensation crosses two lbs and it will play with more spin/more string slide and higher laugh angle. Take some stiffness out as well. Edmond is doing this with the 18x20. Going to switch the 16g crosses out and use 17g 46/44. Worth a try.
