This is the new Federer racquet. From Wilson, the Pro Staff Six.One 90 BLX. This is an update to the previous post, Official Federer 2012 Racquet: Pro Staff Six One 90 BLX.
Tonight, I got to see and hold the racquet. I also have details about the Pro Staff Six.One 95 BLX with a flat beam, and the Pro Staff Six.One 100 BLX, featuring a dual tapered design. See the new Pro Staff Six.One 95 BLX here.
Amplifeel. That is the technology Wilson is marketing in the new frame and line for 2012. Check out more photos below for views around the new racquet, including design, matte finish, specifications, and comparison shots with the current BLX Six.One Tour 90.
The racquet feels similar to the current BLX Six.One Tour yet is a bit different (something I have not yet figured out). As with the BLX model, the new Pro Staff Six.One 90 BLX deviates from the hefty characteristics of previous tour 90 models. This frame feels lighter yet maintains nearly identical specifications in every aspect to the current model. Subtle cosmetic changes are present as well, with less glossy finish, and matte finish all around.
Here is a recap of the three new racquets of the Wilson Pro Staff Six.One BLX family. The new 95″ model is indeed a flat beam and it is an amazing new frame. I will try to have a special post for it soon. The new 100″ model is called a dual tapered beam, and it feels very similar to the flat beam style of the 90, and 95.
