Bringing classic feel to a wider audience, the Wilson Pro Staff Six-One 100 Lite BLX combines a traditional box-beam shape with bit larger head and lighter weight. The result is one of their most versatile frames for players seeking control and forgiveness. Staying true to the Pro Staff name with a thinner, constant beam thickness, the priorities of the Pro Staff Six-One 100 Lite BLX are stability and feel. This is in part thanks to the addition of AmpliFeel technology, which integrates graphite and basalt plates into the handle pallet, filtering out unwanted vibration. This friendly version of the Pro Staff line fits both baseline players and net-rushers with its unique combination of control and stability in a lightweight frame. On court, we were initially surprised by the low power level, but after an adjustment, really enjoyed the control and spin we could generate.

Best Racquet i have ever played with. It is not too heavy and not too light plus the material and way it is structured makes it feel like a original pro staff with more power!
This is a relatively light, head light racquet with a very nice, large sweetspot. It has a nice feel and flex, but has not hurt my arm or shoulder at all. Because the racquet is light and head light, you can really move the racquet quickly. Hence, applying spin and slice is easy. Because the racquet has 100 sq. in. of hitting area, the hitting area is large and predictable. A drawback to this racquet may be regarding overheads and serves. Because of its light weight and head light balance, the force upon hitting the tennis ball does not feel as heavy as would be if the racquet were heavier and more head-heavy. Its about physics. Overall, a quality frame that suites my style of play.
Wilson Pro-Staff 6.1 100
I resumed playing the game after a 30 year layoff. I was using my old wood composite racquet from the 1970s, and felt I need to take advantage of the newer racquet technology available today. I tried various Wilson model demos that my club pro recommended, based on my game and ability level. I liked the Pro-Staff 6.1 100 immediately. It felt very solid on both ground strokes and volleys, compared to other 100 head sized Wilson products I tried. Control was excellent on all shots. I hit with a lot of spin, and the racquet enabled me to put lots of spin on ball without mis-hits. Power is good, although you do need to swing through the ball and make contact in the very generous sweet spot. I like the head light balance, and it is very maneuverable at the net, with the extra 1/4 length helping reach. I have used this racquet primarily playing indoors on hard courts, but have recently moved outside, and used it on hard courts there as well. I have it strung with Wilson NXT strings at 58 lb
Pretty dang good racquet
I really like this stick. I dont get as much pop on the ball as I did with other racquets but I manage to be more consistent. I believe that this racquet is good for someone that can pretty much generate their own power and is looking for great control and any kind of spin.
Pro Staff Six-One BLX 100
After consulting the Tennis Express on-line racket selection page, I went to the store and selected three rackets that fell within the recommendations I received based on my game. After an hour on the court, it was clear that the Six-One BLX 100 was for me. First, its light weight allowed for a quick response. Second, the light head allowed me to control the racket better than I have with any before, quickly whipping the head through on rushed shots. Third, Im more of a control than power player, and I really appreciated the spin the BLX 100 allowed me to put on the ball, keeping it in the court. Not that my power suffered. I was happy with the amount of power this racket was able to generate without having to over swing. Fourth, I bought a damper for vibration but found that I didnt need it. There was no vibration. Wilson has done a great job with the new materials they are using, and it has paid off in a solid feel and nifty control. And lastly, just look at the thing. Its
Demod tons of rackets. Tried all the wilson line up including the PS Blx 90,95, & 100. I generally stick to 90 or 95 rackets but I loved the 100. The spin and power are what did it. I may have lost a smidge of control from the other 2 but the 100 has very controllable power. Its a little lighter than im used to so im gonna add a little weight to 3 & 9 and put an overgrip on it to do the trick. Its great at all aspects: groundies, serves, volleys, slice, and touch shots, all great. One thing about the light weight is its very easy to maneuver and also allows u to whip through swinging faster than u normally would wo even trying, creating more spin. Anyway give it a go it has a classic feel with extra pop.
We purchased two racquets in July and love both of them. Great customer service and fast shipping. Would definitely recommend this company to anyone who wants to save money. Actually found these same racquets at a much higher price, so glad we saved money using Tennis Express!!
BEST RACQUET EVER
It has a fast swing speed and the feeling of the hit is amazing. I recommend using WILSON Champions Choice with this racquet b/c it suited me the best. Again, a great racquet for anyone.
Wilson Pro Staff Six One
This wilson racquet has power at the same time it is very arm friendly, my daughter loves this racquet.
Pro Staff Six-One 100 BLX
I am moderately advanced player. I found this racquet to be above average for spin control. It does lack power and is not very forgiving at least at the 56 lbs that I have it strung at. It has a nice appearance and is easy enough to maneuver with at the net. Overall, it is a good racquet for the more advance harder hitting player.
Great racquet! I was able to high deep, create great angles, put a lot of spin and also hit flat when need it. The light weight made getting the racquet back much easier to return faster serves, and on the net it was easy to maneuver. I was able to put the ball anywhere with ease with any stroke including the serve, highly recommend this racquet to any player 4 level or higher
Control over power
This racquet has lots of control. You feel like you can put the ball where you want. The sweet spot is smaller than other popular racquets, and maybe a little less power than other racquets. But the amount of control gained is worth these disadvantages for my game.
This the first time I went to a tennis pro shop. After talking to the salesperson for a few minutes about my playing style I was led to this piece of technology. I have been playing with it for about a month and I am extremely happy with the results I am seeing in my game. It is an excellent racquet.
Great Control and Power
Have purchased several of these rackets. Awesome.
The service and the racket was fantastic!
Rafael Nogueira Bello
This is a good racket. Do not get me wrong, but I enjoyed playing with this racket. It is solid on the base line and you can get good shots with it. However, because it is very light, I did not feel comfortable going to the net with. Not very good for volleys because of the weight.
I mean, if you already like light rackets, this is for you. It will five you a ton of confidence.
I like the feel of this racquet. I am still getting used to it but my serve hasnt been affected at all, which is a plus, and ground strokes are powerful. My only problem is controlling my volleys but that should come with more usage.
Gr8t: Pro Staff 100 Lite BLX
Im going to cut to the chase and say this racquet is very much so different than my Wilson BLX Surge. In comparison the headsize is same, but the Pro Staff 100 Lite BLX is slightly heavier than my BLX Surge. With this racquet I do notice I got a lot more pop on my serve, and the ability to get some serious angles were prevalent with this Lite BLX. When it came down to the strokes youre definitely force to be very precise where you catching the ball on contact. However, if you are a fan of slicing this racquet is definitely a best fit for your game. I loved how this racquet played when I was playing points at net. Overall, I would certainly recommend this racquet to another, and also purchase another stick to have in my bag. Remember! Please if you choose this racquet make sure you choose your favorite strings.

The best racket for my needs :-
After my previous racket was destroyed, my friend lent me a racket designed for control and spin. It worked like a charm so I went looking for a Wilson racket with the same qualities and found just what I needed at Tennis Express at a good price. having used it 4 or 5 times in recent weeks has proven to me that I made the right choice. It works like charm.
