View Full Version : Can wilson ncode 90s do damage to arm

04-30-2005, 07:26 PM
My arm really hurts between my elbow in shoulder, right in the middle. I was using light rackets, like a Flexpoint. Then, I switched to a 1HBH, and decided to try a wilson ncode 90. Now I have those pains there. Is it from the racket you think? Or from the 1HBH. I think it is from the racket because I was not used to the weight, but what do you guys think?

Could be the result of the weight, or the result of your mechanics changing due to the weight. I would use the other racquet for a while and see if the soreness goes away when you switch back. If it goeas away, you should take a look at your mechanics with the light racquet and the ncode and see if there is a difference. You may just need to slow down a little, or find a racquet that's not such a big weight change to use while you adjust.

I find i have a sore shoulder after playing 1 and a half long sets using my N61 tours 90s they are pretty stiff and fairly heavy, i am only 14 though

I was too late on my forhand wiht ncode 90 then got the same problem. You have to work on earlier preporation and watch how Federa steal time on his forhand.
That's the great racquet just get used to it, you were not find a better on the market.

It's true for 14 years old players the racquet too havy.

How much does it weigh? I like heavy racquets, and I'm 14.

Heh, the funny thing is that I am 14

Anythign can do damage to the arm; I think it might be due to fatigue... Although I'm 16, I also use heavy racquets, and have been since I was 15.. Not too long ago, 7 months? Anyways, yeah, I think it might be due in part to mechanics and you might just have to get stronger.

it also could be that it is strung with full BB ALU power at 60

Its not the racquet, its your technique and misshits.

I play ncode 90s and after using bb alu, my shoulder hurt for several months. I am just recovering. I use a gut hybrid now and am ok up to 6 or so hours a day with no pain. 2 hours with bb and I can feel the pain coming back. It then stays for several days. Still healing. Skip the bb. cliff

OK, a little tip from a drunk old man ...

With the nCode 90, swing smoothly. Don't "jerk" your strokes. Swing your strokes "evenly". Keep your wrist and elbow tight and firm -- old school style. I don't have the nCode 90 but I have two PS Tour 90's and my 12 y-o son plays with one of them. He has the same problem once in a while. But when I tell him to hold tight and swing smoothly, he doesn't get the problem.

Another, is it strung way up tight?

Exactly as anirut says, otherwise you will hit rim.

hey cliff, how's that vantage treating you?

You should check your mechanics with a coach. Ask yourself some important questions too, like are you overplaying? Is the racquet heavy for you? Do you cross train with other complimentary tennis exercises? Do you rest up enough? Lot of factors but if your hurting, a rest will be necessary before you jump right back into action to correct your mistakes in my humble opinion.
