if its 12 pts HL then its the same in one aspect as the ncode 90...

the pj of the k six one tour isnt too bad, but the ncode 90 looks clean

if the specs are the same as the ncode 90, i'm not buying into whatever "new technology" they'll say

11-15-2006, 11:16 PM
i've zoomed in on the image with the specs shown....i'm making it out to be 12 pts HL...

is that looking like it says 360g? as opposed to 352g for the current ncode 90

if it is then k six-one tour 90 is 12.7 oz approx

This was definitely discovered in the other thread (http://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/showthread.php?p=1060526#post1060526), I've already pointed people to it once before in that thread, here goes...

Bringing the negative pic into Photoshop to get a cleaner look it appears that it has the following specs:

90 sq in head
16x19 string pattern
12 oz weight unstrung
12 pts HL


obviously a different one:

Perhaps, not, this post also came from the other thread (http://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/showthread.php?p=1060526#post1060526)...

I think that picture #1 & #2 show the same racquet with the same color scheme (red at the 3 & 9 o'clock positions). Picture # 2 (closeup of grommets & circle "K") has just been desaturated & manipulated in Photoshop to give it a different color/hue. I played around with the first pic & was able to get it to closely match the color tones of the second. You'll notice that whatever was red in pic. #1 now appears to be the same reddish gray as in pic. #2.

Nope. Looks like 340g 12.0oz which is the same the the other tour 90s. There is no reason why wilson would increase unstrung weight that much.

yeah i'm not on you for anything...i just want to figure it out

It's cool - I didn't figure you were 'on me'.

People have also commented as much as you have above in the other thread.

I have two guesses:

a. They're going to claim it plays significantly differently, which will be somewhat interesting to see *how differently* given the very similar mold & specs.

b. That they may have been press-release demo racquets, and had an old set of specs on them. Be kinda smart, leak the photos, but don't leak the specs just yet.

If Robert Palmer, Phil Collins and Huey Lewis are your music of choice (on tape, of course) then, apart from a beating, you probably deserve the K Factor (which looks like the love child of a Wilson Trident and a Yamaha EX 110).

Yeah, maybe this time Wilson will claim that the new K-Factor is "2 times less stable, 2 times less strong, and 22% less powerful"? So remember the K-Factor code: "-2 -2 -22". I guess that gets them back to about where they were. :mrgreen: LOL

I'd assumed it was red too, maybe just looks orange-y due to overexposure in one or two of the shots? I'd be surprised if wilson completely went away from the red...

Oh - adely - as for black & orange - black & strong orange are a very common colour combination, marketing-wise anyways. Almost anything works with black, but orange is bright & strong. Maybe not 'designer-stylish', but damned effective at getting attention....

I think the color balance of the photo is way off. Look how much green is in the wood. I adjusted it just a little and came up a more realistic shot, but I can't post attachments to show you. I think the racquet is definitely red, but it's a more vivid red than the usual Wilson red.

It is indeed an ugly paintjob. I really don't care though if they can bring back the great feel of our beloved prostaff 85/95s. I have a question for the racket technology gurus. Does the trend of making rackets "stronger" necessarily equate to rackets increasingly losing their feel? It certainly happened with Wilson's "nanotechnology".

Even though a lot of people don't like the PJ now, once they see federer using the k-factor it'll grow on them. just how the PS Tour 90 looks dated, the nCode Tour 90 will be perceived the same way. More detail in the k-factor trumps the plain look of the red/white of the nCode

according to wikipedia:
In Sheet metal engineering, the term k-factor has the following meaning:

During bending the inner surface of the bend is subjected to compression while the outer surface is subjected to tension. However there is layer in between which is free from any forces and thus its length remains the same. This is called the neutral axis ( N.A ). The radius of this layer of metal is called the neutral bend arc radius ( NBAR )and is defined as the inside bend radius plus a percentage( K-factor ) of the metal thickness.

NBAR = BR + (T * K-factor)

The K-Factor ( K ) depends on the material, the type of bending operation (coining, air-bending), the ratio of the Bend Radius to the metal thickness ( R/T ) and is typically between 0.3 to 0.5. For most types of steels it is around 0.33 to 0.4

armand
11-16-2006, 04:57 PM
McLaren uses way less orange(way less black and more silver too), and they only use it as highlights so that's why it looks much better. And orange and dark blue looks very good, but that orange+black just isn't good, maybe the white also gets in the way.

Hi D Net...great pics btw

Not sure if anyone else has noticed...if so then ignore this thread :-D but on the racquet where we can see the PWS it has the 4 grommet holes as opposed to the 5...now, does that mean that they might produce the 'Federer' spec.? As in a more open string pattern? As I have hit with the Japanese Ltd edition racquets and found that I was able to generate more spin than with the off the shelf N-Code tour 90

Hi La Bomba.

Sorry to say my friend but i'm not looking to sell my PS Tour 90s. They have a special place in my heart because they are the first Wilson Rackets I started off with and helped shape me into the player I am today.

Although I don't use them as my main racket anymore, I use them frequently for "muck around hits" or for non serious matches. Mind you, if I ever decide to sell them, then you'll be the first Talk Tennis person i'll contact.

I will try to get a demo racquet of the K 90 when it comes to Sweden. Actually when the Ncode came I tried it 6 months before it was realesed in stores so maybe I can try it out next week. I will call the Wilson in Sweden to chek it.

These pictures are from a camera phone and leave alot to be desired. The racquet is Wilson red not orange. The Tour specs are 12.5 oz strung and 12 pts HL. Not an exact match to the N 6 1 Tour but close enough. There will be 5 models altogether: Tour, 95(16x18 & 18x20), 95X{1/2 inch longer) and Team (10.8 oz.)
Release is timed w/ the Aussie Open and will be in dealers hands by 1/20. More models w/ "visual" technology will be released in March. Wilson is spending a ton of $$$ on the launch by bringing in top accounts to Las Vegas from all over the world.
IMO this is "paint" technology. I've hit these new ones and can't find a difference from the N's other than the leather grip is shorter than the N exposing a longer section of the shaft. Wilson has been losing market share and the N code story is old and hard to tell/understand. K Factor is being kept under wraps until March until this "visual" technology is released. Sounds like a "me to" technology since Prince is kicking Wilson's butt in player improvement sales.
Hey! The racquet looks [k]ool and there are plenty of tour wanna be's out there that will buy it. But the $200 price tag may be a bit stiff for most the teenie boopers who post on this site! LOL

These pictures are from a camera phone and leave alot to be desired. The racquet is Wilson red not orange. The Tour specs are 12.5 oz strung and 12 pts HL. Not an exact match to the N 6 1 Tour but close enough. There will be 5 models altogether: Tour, 95(16x18 & 18x20), 95X{1/2 inch longer) and Team (10.8 oz.)
Release is timed w/ the Aussie Open and will be in dealers hands by 1/20. More models w/ "visual" technology will be released in March. Wilson is spending a ton of $$$ on the launch by bringing in top accounts to Las Vegas from all over the world.
IMO this is "paint" technology. I've hit these new ones and can't find a difference from the N's other than the leather grip is shorter than the N exposing a longer section of the shaft. Wilson has been losing market share and the N code story is old and hard to tell/understand. K Factor is being kept under wraps until March until this "visual" technology is released. Sounds like a "me to" technology since Prince is kicking Wilson's butt in player improvement sales.
Hey! The racquet looks [k]ool and there are plenty of tour wanna be's out there that will buy it. But the $200 price tag may be a bit stiff for most the teenie boopers who post on this site! LOL



I have to disagree. Wilson has made a whole lot of money out of the ncodes. I mean lots. I'm in the UK, and most peoplew around where i am situated are like quite a lot of people on this forum (They don't believe in all these gimmicks) but when they tried them out, they found that the technology worked. Due to this half the people from my various clubs and tourneys play with ncodes and have on average at least 2. I'm not saying all, but quite a lot do.

P.s. Where are the pics?

I don't think this was posted in this thread yet, but here's a poster with the specs (credit to whoever took it, not me). Mongo, note that the Tour is 9pts HL strung (12 pts HL unstrung) so thats the same as the old n6-1 if I remember correctly.

It is the response for Mr.Mongo
The k-factor racket 90 with the LEATHER gip and STRUNG ( avialable) in MA
is 13 ounces,NOT 12.5 as claimed above

For Mr.Mongo
It is is ABSOLUTELY BEYOND ME why the K-factor story should be EASIER
to understand than the ncode story except of:
a) more open string pattern
b) a more flexible design of a throat

PS To make it clear:I play ncode 6.1 95

How many K90s have you weighed? My shop near my house had one strung, weighed in at a little less than 12.6oz, Craig Clark also did a review of the K90 on these boards, his were 12.5oz strung.

Why do people want so many pictures of such ugly racquets:p ? I hope they play well, because all this hype definitely can't be over the paint job.

I kind of like the paint job. It's refreshingly ugly. Just like me...

I weighed the K90 the other day in my basement and it weighed well over 15 oz. No lie.

Two ounces heavier than it would most likely be? I do not think even Wilson's quality control is that bad. Are you sure the scale was set to zero?

Anyone know what the new technology is? Potassium encoded? lol

lol Yep, I'm reading it right now again. A lot of people act like Wilson is the greatest when they are by far one of the worst brands for any sport, let alone, tennis. Diadora is the biggest name in tennis. They make the best racquets and cleats. As for the new technology, K stands for "Kent". There's a guy by the name of Kent that works for Wilson and does a lot of the creative design and testing for Wilson. He was awarded the company's "Best Designer for 2006" and in his honor, they named the new racquets after him. I know that sounds like a stretch but I'm serious. I was suspicious at first as well but it's true.
