By Bill Gray and Bruce Levine on May 20, 2010

You want to be just like Roger Federer, and you’ve patterned your look and playing style after the best in the game. Fine, but don’t go messing around with his precision instrument, the Six.One Tour BLX, unless you’re already collecting prize money as a pro or at least playing in college or in elite juniors. Lesser-skilled players using this racquet may face serious blows to their egos. Its 90-square-inch head (the smallest of the racquets reviewed here) and hefty 12.5-ounce weight only work in the most capable hands. For the rest of us, Wilson has come up with a host of Six.One look-alikes that are friendlier to a wider range of players, including (from the top down) the Six.One 95 BLX, Six.One Team BLX, Six.One Lite BLX and the junior-sized Six.One 26. A playtester who competes on the Challenger circuit thought the addition of BLX technology (fibers woven into the frame to decrease vibration) gave it a bit more power than last year’s version, the [K] Six.One Tour, along with a more comfortable feel without masking touch.

Bottom Line:
Try the Six.One’s many incarnations to see which fits you best.
