Wilson BLX Six-One 95 16x18 Tennis Racquet Review

Wilson returns to the player’s frame lineup with its latest offering - the Wilson BLX Six-One 95, one of a handful of frames in the new BLX line. Feel is the optimum word with the BLX Six-One 95, a fully-loaded, control-oriented frame that features the new space-age basalt fibers.
At a stock 11.7 ounces unstrung, it’s beefy enough to go toe-to-toe with just about anything from the baseline, yet mixes in some subtleties that a variety of playing types will find suitable for their games.
This terrifically weighted stick will impress big hitting baseliners and serve-and-volleyers alike. Both playing styles will really appreciate this racquet’s firmer feel and weight and ball response from that.
Load up on groundies and the BLX Six-One 95 will really impress with great plow through capabilities from even the deepest spots in the court. Crafty slice artists will be rewarded as well with low-diving, knee-scraping cut shots. I especially liked my power slice with the BLX Six-One 95. That shot alone made this stick a fun hit for a playtest.
Serves required a bit of a swing to generate some pop, but direction, kick and bend were all way above par. I liked that ‘in-control’ feeling when stepping to the line, even if I was sacrificing some power. Returns, especially chippers and dippers, were excellent. I usually swing out, but was having such nice results on my time with the BLX, that I got a bit more experimental than usual with that shot.
This stick really doesn’t accentuate or favor any one feature too much, other than maybe those on the power/ spin side, especially given the more open 16 x 20 string pattern. The BLX Six-One 95 is really more of a Jack-of-All-Trades type of racquet, which makes it a superb stick for all-courters and those who can really put the bruising on a tennis ball but could add a hint more consistency.
The BLX Six-One 95 isn’t an overly flexible stick, but that doesn’t mean it can’t add plenty of flexibility back into your game.
