The Wilson Pro Staff Six One 95 was one of my favorite rackets to play with when I was first getting into tennis, as it was an excellent control racket, and was a dream to hit my one handed backhand with.
The one downside to the racket was its weight (323g unstrung) which meant my arm would feel tired if I played longer than an hour with it, and this was the main reason I switched to playing with lighter control rackets like the RF97 and the Clash 98.
So when I heard that Wilson was releasing a lighter Six One 100 version of the racket, I was super excited to see how the two rackets would compare to each other.

Head to Head
The Six One 95 is much better in terms of control but the Six One 100 is the better option in terms of power, spin, and comfort.
Player Level Recommendations
The Six.One 95 is best used by advanced tennis players as it is a very low powered frame that requires you to have good technique on your shots.
The Six.One 100 will be the much better option for intermediate players as it gives you more help in terms of power and is a lot more forgiving.
I wouldn’t recommend either racket to beginners as they are both relatively heavy frames with small sweet spots.
Pro Player Endorsements
Wilson’s pro staff range of tennis rackets is endorsed by a number of top players on the ATP and WTA Tours including Grigor Dimitrov, Ons Jabeur, and Dan Evans.
