Gear Review

When you demo most racquets you generally want to know if the frame is up to your standards. But with the [K] Six.One Tour the more appropriate question is, are you good enough to use it? When everything is working, you can make some beautiful music with this racquet. The stability and control are first-rate. As one 4.5 tester put it, “This racquet had ESP. I could put the ball on a dime.” The sweet spot is small, but it feels great when you find it. The new [K] Factor technology features additional nano fibers that strengthen the frame, and an extended base right above the grip makes the racquet a hint more forgiving than the nSix-One. And if the Tour is too challenging, the [K] Six.One 95 is a bit more user-friendly. It’s also clearly for top-shelf players, but with its bigger face the 95 provides more pop and a wider sweet spot. The downside is it can be a little wilder, particularly from the baseline.

Bottom Line: College players and upper-echelon juniors will want to try the Tour, while the 95 is a good option for strong recreational players.
