I found this racket brand new for like $50... but I couldn't find anything on it on TW, so I wanted to ask you guys how it feels compared to Federer's Kfactor. I've only hit with the Asian version of the K (320g) but it was quite a pleasant experience lol

i like the ncode more. i found one that was the best stick i ever used. i could not lose with it. the k factor on the other hand i could not win. swung way different. it felt lighter in the head. didnt feel right.

finding the right racquet is like finding the right woman; once you've found it, you'll never find better... "quite pleasant" ain't the one... many have fallen for the charms of the ncode and never faltered so give it a try

I think they are very very different sticks to be honest mainly to do with the spin production because of the very different string beds. I've hit with the nCode 6.1 Tour 90 for a short amount of time and have to say that I did really like it because of the wicked topspin I was getting on my forehand; it's definitely a nice racquet.

I have an n95 16x18 (8.5/10) for sale in the For Sale section.

isn't both the n90 and k90 16/19 string pattern ? if so don't they both perform the same re: slice?

the patterns are the same, but the difference in swingweight is different.
like ppl say the k90 swingweight feels lighter in the head, rather than the n90 have a lil more weight in the head.

That's crap. Men always want to try new women, and new racquets...regardless of whether or not they're in committed relationships (with women or racquets). LOL.

And you never find the perfect woman, or the perfect racquet. You settle. At least until something better comes along.

He asked about how it compared to the i.Prestige in a sense, although I guess I misread what he said in the overall context. My bad.
