Okay, as you may know I currently use the nCode 90. I tend to hit the ball 95% of the time in the center of the string bed, but a little higher up. You know? Like the higher center of the string bed, that's where most of the wear is.

Anyway, I like the feel of the spot I hit on my nCode 90...but would I have the same success hitting the ball in that spot on the kSix-One 95 16 x 19?

Pure curiosity. Thank you.

I personally don't know but would like to demo it. Anyone with comments on this stick compared to k90?

i would say it is slightly lower than center in k95 16X18.
don't think they make a k95 with a 16x19.

Oops. My mistake. But thank you for the help.

you are welcome. i wonder if i am the only person that thinks the sweetspot
is slightly lower than center in the k95?

If you assume TW specs are accurate (and match your specific racquets) and assume an axis of rotation of 10 cm from the butt:

n6.1 Tour COP = 53.21 cm from butt; and
k6.1 95 16X18 COP = 54.79 cm from butt

I cannot tell you where that measurement lies in each racquet's head, but the COP in the n6.1 Tour is closer to your hand.

That said, COP is only 1 of 3 sweetspots.

The 90 is slightly more head heavy than the 95, therefore the sweetspot is a bit 'lower' in the 95. However, since the 95 has a larger string bed, the sweet spot is a bit larger. All that said, you're talking very little difference, perhaps 1cm surrounding.
