Racquet Deals - WILSON [K] 6.1 LITE FRAME 2009 - Need help ASAP on choice
 
Hi all,

I found a few good deals at my local shop. I need a new racquet by tomorrow. The cheapest being the Wilson K 6.1 Lite Frame. I can't find much info on it...but here's the specs:

Suggested String - Wilson Sensation NXT Head size: 660 sq cm
Strung Weight: 9.3 oz. / 265 g
Length: 69 cm
Strung Balance: 1 pt. HH / 35 cm
LENGTH; 27
FRAME COMPOSITION; nCoded Hypercarbon, nCoded High Modulus Graphite and Kevlar
[K]arophite Black / Double Hole technology
Cross Section: 23.5 mm Flat Beam


What do you all think? Do you believe this racquet will not produce enough power b/c it's so light?

Theres also good deals on the below, only about $20-$25 more than the lite frame:

WILSON: HYPER 4.0 100 RACQUET 2009
WILSON: [K] STING FRAME
DUNLOP: AEROGEL 300 FRAME
BABOLAT: PURE DRIVE RODDICK - bit more pricier than the above three.

In what order would you recommend?

I want something with a bit more power and control.

I'm currently using a cheap Head T.I 2000 Titanium and want a slight upgrade.

Details:

Gripsize: 1-5
String Pattern: 16/19
Swingstyle: None
Beam: 23 mm
Head size: 710 cm²
Weight: 270 g
Balance: 330 mm
Length: Standard, 685 mm
Colors: orange/white

Thanks

i wouldnt go for the k61 lite unless you are either a kid aged 10-13 or just generally a physically weak person. something like the wilson hyper 4.0 or k sting would be better if you want something better with more power and control. the aerogel 300 and pd roddick may be going a little too far

Great, thanks a lot. I noticed a lot of people recommending the AG300...is this racquet for more advanced players or would I be able to build up the technique and skill to use the racquet well?

I actually can't find the AG300 anymore. Do you recommend the wilson hyper 4.0 or k sting? The k sting is unstrung and the hyper is strung plus it's cheaper so if both perform similar then I will grab the hyper and save some cash.

they are quite similar. the main difference is the sting has a slightly larger headsize so it a little easier to use
