One of the most iconic racquets of all time, the Wilson Six-One 95 series (which started with the famous Wilson Pro Staff 6.1 Classic, has been relaunched by Wilson in Europe in a new white/red paint job. I haven’t been able to find the racquet on a lot of the online retailers however, only a Swedish one called “Racketspecialisten” and Pro Direct Tennis so far. I might buy a few myself from there.
You who have tried the Wilson Six One 95 series, know that the racquet plays like a manoeuvrable tank thanks to his decent weight (332 grams unstrung) and head light balance. It’s a very popular racquet among the top players with names such as…yes, they are really too many to NOT list:

- Wilson Pro Staff 6.1 Classic
- Wilson Hyper Pro Staff 6.1
- Wilson nSix-One 95 (nCode)

The new European-edition design of the Wilson Six-One 95 looks like this (see pics below). Keeping with the classic, clean, white and red design of the previous version. Thanks to poster “808” on TT forums for the pics.
