TENNIS.com Review
By Bill Gray and Bruce Levine on December 07, 2009

The Skunk is back. Like previous Six.Two models, this update has the familiar black-and-white color scheme, giving the racquet its nickname. The [K] Six.Two is head light rather than head heavy like the Hammer 6.2, which first popularized the Skunk. The result is a more maneuverable stick that’s good for all-court play and not just baseline bashing. Still, the [K] Six.Two gives you some extra pop. So you get a little help if you’re late on your ground strokes, but not so much that you can’t control the ball if you have time to set up to rip a winner. This is particularly beneficial on the serve, where the added pace made for big bombs. As one of our reviewers described it, “The racquet is like a player’s stick on steroids.” Control and handling on volleys were very good, although some testers found it lacking on touch shots.

Bottom Line: Competitive all-court club players or juniors not quite strong enough for an advanced frame will get the most out of the new Skunk.
