I am looking to buy a set of new frames since my N six-one 95's are cracked. I feel comfortable using my Ncode 95 but would like to try new frames. How does the K factors compare to the old ncodes? I am looking at 90 and 95. How does the 90 play compared to the 95's. Also I am thinking of trying PDR since it will be way easier to play with than K factors but the control won't be there. Reason I am asking is I won't be able to demo until next week so would like some heads up.

Federer using a PDR? Eek ..

Seriously though, K95 would be the closest. Why do you want something new?
N95s would be pretty cheap now, but demo-ing is best when you can. Most likely the PDR will be far too powerful. Even the K95 packs a bit more punch. Plenty of thoughts on the K90 on this forum already.

Plenty of thoughts on k90? What do you mean? Is it liked? or just simply too hard for anyone less than a pro. I mean how much of a difference is there really between 90 and 95. I prefer the box beam of the 90 than the straight of 95. It simply feels better in my hands.

I have played with both the K95 and K90 and think that it is night and day between the two. Although I like the idea of owning and playing with the K90, it just didn't make sense. Once the "honeymoon" period is over you will realize that it is a hard racquet to be consistant with over the long run. I think the K95 will give you a nice players stick that stills gives you the playability and consistancy everyone needs.

K 95 is the closest to N95 in your choices. Everyone is not Federer so i don't recommend the K90 for the average player.



(although fed doesnt even use the k90.....)

Ok so k90 I guess is out of question. Can you guys compare the PD or PDR?

I agree when you say that the k90 isnt recommened for the average player. Ive demoed both the k90 and the PDR (Pure Drive Roddick) and i thought the Babolat Pure Drive Roddick was a much better racket in my opinion. The PDR had a larger sweetspot and more power compared to the k90. If it came down to either the k90 or k95, i would choose the k95 because of the larger head size and added power.

I would say go with the PDR or k95. I would not recommend the k90 if you are not around 4.0 or 4.5.

PDR and k95 are a lot more forgiving. Both have plenty of pop, spin and control.

Can you do some reviews of comparing the PDR and k95? What plays better or differently in what areas? I have to make a decision to buy 2-3 of them this week. I was supposed to demo them next week but I think I will just choose. The reason is that I've tried the PDR many times (Normal PD felt good and was easy but PDR seems more solid and feels mushier when I hit which I like). I haven't tried k95 but assuming its same as N95.

I agree. I play with a PDR and LOVE it. k95 is also a nice racquet, not as spin friendly as the PDR IMHO.

I will say that both frames play especially well after a strip of lead tape is added to the 3 and 9 o'clock.
