I'm looking for a racquet that retains a lotof the PS85 feel but but forgiving/larger margin for error... How does this racquet feel compare to the PS85?

I dislike the 16x18 string pattern. If I thought it over I would have bought the 18x20.

As you can see, everybody has an opinion. Just demo the N6195 (16 x 18) and decide for yourself. It's a wonderful racket and great for someone who came from the 6085 (I did too...along with the 6095...and three generations of 6.1). If you like a firmer stringbed (my arm doesn't) try the 18x20.

BTW...I have 2 of the 18x20 version and I like the feel of the 16x18 better...IMHO of course :) BTW2...they are both for sale ;)

i own both the n6.1 95 16x18 and the K6.1 95 16x 18.
I like both racquets, but I like the Ncode alittle bit more.
I think the n6.1 95 has a better feel.
But I felt like the k6.1 is a little better in volleys.
If I could, I would trade my k6.1 for the n6.1

Hey crazysoccer, I've got a question about the k6.1 95. Did the k95 have more pop, pace, spin on groundstroke and serves? Thank you

the n6-1 95 is a great racket, but it definitely doesnt feel the same as the 6.0

How much is the 18x20 you're selling? I'm thinking about trading my 16x18 thats about 7.5/10 condition. Just minor paint chips.

I had to add quite a bit of lead to my nC6195s to get them to play as well as my PS6095. Some 40 grams to the handle [easy for me since I use a 5.0 inch grip] and some 8 grams at 3 and 9 each.
Now the added weight makes them play better than the 6.0 as they are more stable and powerful while retaining the same headlight balance [handle overgrips/weight does not disturb the balance that much]. It is most noticable on volley performance.

Wow...you added 56 grams to a stock n6195???? That's almost 2 full oz's (1.9753 oz)!!! I can tell you a 14.5 oz n6195 could not possibly feel remotely similar to a PS6095. You are either an animal or you mis-stated the weight of the lead you applied.

Hey,DarkSlayerX

Yes I did feel like that the k95 had a little bit more pop on everything you mentioned.
Good luck with your search

I just demoed the K95 and agree with the increased power but I had a better feel, the n code always felt like it had a trampoline like quality mostly on ground strokes, the serve and volleys were fine, The 2hrs I hit with the k 95 were superb, however I am a classic example of the honeymoon syndrome ie I play and get very enthusiastic about a demo and as time goes on the rkt settles in like alot of others

It weighs in at 402 grams whatever the other numbers are.
It feels very much HL and measures at about 7 points HL.
Best frame I have ever hit with, especially volleys and defense.

For most of us here in the U.S., we use ounces as our form of weight measurement. 402 grams = 14.2 oz That is a very heavy racket indeed. I am not aware of any current pro player that plays with a racket this heavy (Pete Sampras was near 14 oz I believe). Even with the 7 pts. HL balance the swing weight must be close to 370-380.

How's you forearm after 2-3 sets?
