Comments: In order to play with this racquet you must: be in shape, be at least a high intermediate player and
have a long and technical swing, because it does not generate to much power. The feel, precision, and capacity to deliver
heavy balls are unique. I am a 4.5 agressive player. I like to hit strong forehands, go often to the net, surprise with
dropshots and use angles. The racquet has improved my game style. I played with Wilson Blade 18x20 for the last three
years. I really enjoyed it, but decided to take one step foward with Wilson 6.1, and I am very happy with the choice I made.
I use a Luxlon Big Banger ALU Power at 50 lbs.

Comments: The frame is solid and my forehand shots gained about 10 more miles per hour. I love playing with
frame but with a full bed of poly, my elbow is little sore. I have been trying the Yonex Tour 330 G and I like that even better
It feels even more stable and my backhand wing is better with it. And it's more comfortable.

Comments: Long time user of the K-Factor and this Six.One series. Somehow, I was not connected to this
any more; went down with tension, put natural gut into it and so on. I've experimented a lot with other sticks as of late.
Well, I put
Pacific Poly Force 16L in it at 1kg above max rec tension (i.e. 27x26.5kg) as a bad weather dug out. It is now what I always
wanted. It is absolutely top notch now, an aggressive player's dream. Power is no problem at all, solid topspin (yeah!), slice
deadly, it stops short and is full of backspin, and I can go for aggressive targets. It has it all. Not harsh on my arm at all.
tennis nirvana. Don't be shy to string it tight, as tight as it takes -- you may be surprised. But if you are a defensive guy,
clear both of this stick and this set-up.
From: Andrew, 4/15
Comments: Best racquet I have owned so far. Having used many like the PS85, POG Mid, Technifibers, and
this one does one thing that none have ever done. The Six.One is dead quiet. I would get vibrations on framed shots or
shots on all the other racquets at some point that would drive me nuts. The Six.One strung with Kevlar/ZX at 65/45 lbs is
and controlled and no vibrations. But I still have power when I need it. I weighted mine up to 380g and it's perfect. Love
18x20 pattern. My serve is better with this racquet and my volleys are solid. Groundies have more control and decent

Comments: Bought a Pro Staff 95S last year that quickly became my go to racquet of choice. Due to string
and having to customize the frame with lead, I decided to demo the Six.One 95. I generate good spin off both sides so I
the 16x18 and 18x20 and went for the 18x20 as it just felt like it had controllable power. I got this frame for brand new,
with Wilson Sensation when it arrived. It's without a doubt the best racquet I have played with -- easy to swing, good
touch, slices are heavy and low, nice sound on contact. The Sensation plays pretty well, but will replace with Tourna7.

Comments: This is the best racquet ever made by Wilson. Unfortunately the Six.One line will not be continued.

Comments: Santa Claus dropped this off for me this year. I am used to a Pro Kennex Redondo 98 which is a
legendary cult racquet -- just read the TW player reviews. The Wilson Six.One 95 18x20, however, is a brilliant alternative.
Redondo is for aggressive attacking tennis when you want to generate pace and dominate the court whereas the Wilson is
you are playing younger, fitter, stronger players. The 95 just loves to feed off opposition pace and is amazing at cross
passes. It's a wonderful returner's racquet is what I am saying. Have a nice day from England.

Comments: Didn't see a new update for 2015 in the new catalog but this is a great stick. Take that with a grain
salt because I'm an ex D1 player in 2009. I put leather grips on mine and strung with the best hybrid out there, Babolat
17g and ALU Power crosses 51 lbs and 48 lbs crosses. Don't listen to the lack of spin on the reviews on here. This racquet

From: Adro, 12/14
Comments: This is an awesome stick, and maybe the best stick I have ever played with. The weight is
feel is wonderful and the balance is just right. The one thing that surprised me the most is the spin that I got from such a
18x20 string pattern. Kick serves were kicking like crazy. On groundstrokes, just let the racquet do the work for you.
love this racquet!
From: CF, 11/14
Comments: I previously used the 2010 version and enjoyed that racquet a lot, although it could sometimes be
little bit slow. This version has been the perfect solution -- still rock solid and easy to control, but it is just a hair faster --
to a great playing racquet! I felt so confident while accelerating that I was getting a ton of spin on my shots, despite the
From: James, 7/14
Comments: I was using the 2012 model and loved it. I thought the 2014 model would be exactly the same!
Unfortunately, it doesn't feel the same! I felt like the strings were a lot tighter on this one, anyone else felt that? After two
practices my biceps started to hurt as well. Did it happen to anyone else?
From: Patrick, 5/14
Comments: Not as stable as I thought it would be (though certainly not unstable). Great on the backhand slice,
great for control on the serve, but nothing special beyond that without modification. If you are strong enough to get the
head speed quite high, you can generate enough spin to make it matter, but otherwise you need to have a pretty classic
game to make this racquet matter.

Comments: Just received my new 6.1 18x20 and it's absolutely fantastic, and a solution to a problem. I'm an
school" flat hitter (I'm 40 and my son is 13), so he's a flat hitter also. Our go-to racquets are the PS85 and PS90. We have
everything else, Aeropro, Pure Drive, various Head models, yet we always go back to the 85 or 90. Even in my son's USTA
tourneys, he will sometimes switch mid game back to the 90. So we recently demo'd the "spin racquets," PS95S, 99S,
idea being that with built in spin, our flat shots would naturally be more controllable. Not the case, we ended up spraying
going long, into the net, the S models made us with less control. So my idea was to try to find something bigger but with
or similar control and specs to the 85 or 90, something that we can just swing away with. So I demoed then bought the 95
the dense pattern, strung with Lux Power at 55 lbs (will probably go to Rough), it is insanely good. We can paint lines, hit
accurately with full swings with no fear of losing control, and of course we gain a bigger sweetspot and power. So if you
are a flat
hitter and want to move up to a bigger head, I highly recommend the 6.1 95 18X20. Ignore the PS95, it shouldn't even be in
family, it's light, weird. One other note, we have played with the K Factor 95 16X18 as third racquet due to it's similar specs
85 and 90, the new racquet, although same mold, is different. The K Factor you feel every vibration, every miss hit or good
and some may prefer that. The new racquet has a complete different feel, I wouldn't say muted, it feels more like plow
even though I know it's the new tech where you can't feel your shots. It's also a bargain, $159.00 for a new racquet!
From: Mike, 4/14
Comments: Perfect "tweener" player's racquet, modern vs classic strokes. I have played with the 16x19 and
for over a month trying to make a final decision. Finally decided to go with the 18x20. I found slightly more spin on the
pattern, but the control and confidence, especially on the backhand slice, was noticeably better with the 18x20, at least at
altitude (in Denver). I'm a 4.5-5.0, and strung with X-1 Biphase/Red Code hybrid at 56/52 lbs.

Comments: Great racquet! I can hit the ball really hard and the ball still lands inside the court. The racquet
more solid when I added small amount of lead at the 3 and 9 o'clock. This racquet really improved my serve, net game and
forehand. No wonder this racquet got high ratings from Tennis Warehouse racquet playtesters. I used Luxilon Alu power at
From: John, 3/14
Comments: Disappointed! I have played with all of the previos versions and this new one is totally different. It
lost the feel of the classic frame. During a session of training, I compared the new version with the 2012 version, both with
same string and tension (Luxilon Alu Power 43 lbs.). The new version is light and quicker but with less plow through;
sound at the impact, the mute feel make you disconnected. I like the feel on volleys due to the more maneuverability. Less
and stability, and not as solid at the impact as the previous versions. It doesn`t make me the confidence I used to have with

I am using the factory standard Wilson Sensation strings for the time being. My first impressions are similar to those others

longer offering great feel. This racquet has such great feel! My backhand slice has come on miles instantly and can be hit

the swing correct over time. I will post a further review once I have more hours playing with this racquet and have changed
strings. I am thinking of either using NXT Tour 16 or NXT Control.
From: Joe, 1/14
Comments: I love this racquet! I started playing with a Head Extreme Pro a year and a half ago (which I still
a great beginners racquet) then went to the Wilson Steam 99S which is also a fine stick and really helped me keep the ball
court as I had a tendency to hit long. This week I took home the Blade 98S and the Six.One 95 (not the S, the
332g/18x20). I am
in love with Six.One and am going to buy it. I hit all three racquets against the ball machine and the accuracy and feel I got
the Six.One 95 was superb (the Blade wasn't bad either but it wasn't better than my 99S). I probably could not have hit so
with it a year ago because my ground strokes needed a lot of work, but now that I am more consistent -- this is my stick!
problem was the serve. Because this is a player's racquet, it is not as forgiving for sloppy strokes and my serves still need
work, but that is my problem and not the Six.One's. If you have been playing awhile I recommend grabbing a demo and
giving it a
try for an afternoon.

using slice and a one handed backhand. I don't know if it was just my first impression, but it feels stiffer than the Pro Staff.
strung it with a hybrid mix, both at 50 pounds (mains with Luxilon AlU Rough and crosses with Synthetic Gut 16), maybe
pounds would be the right tension for the 18X20 pattern.
From: Ricardo, 11/13
Comments: My first impression was not good because the racquet seemed far lighter than the specs on TW
ounces). I didn't like that. I want heft. My first impressions were soon changed once I hit the courts. I found control, power,
almost immediately. This is an extremely comfortable racquet with great control. My partner remarked that my shots came
and with more power even though I hit the same strokes as when I use with my Dunlop Aerogel 200. The Wilson racquet is
so I'll have to add some weight. I did not notice plow through that I get from my ProStaff 90. Overall, I am really glad I gave
is really a sweet and enjoyable racquet to hit with and I expect that I will soon groove my strokes with this stick. Once word
this racket will be all over the courts.
