Can anyone compare these two in terms of power,control, maneuverability, spin etc. I am mainly a baseliner who uses a fair bit of topspin on groundies and I have a fairly fast serve . I have a long loopy fast swing on groundies. Which one would be better for me. I am 13

I would think the ncode would have more power. If I remember correctly, the HPS 6.0 did exist and was practically a tour version of the 6.1 (similar red color scheme). I do not remember the specs, but I also think the ncode would be lighter and more maneuverable. Finally, I think the HPS 6.0 was an 18x20 and the n6.1 95 can be 16x18...leading to better spin potential.

Off topic here...La bomba...how do you find the web archive pages. I was looking to let the original poster know where to find the old specs like you found but had to use racket finder (no pictures and little review). Please let me know if you get a chance.

The HPS 6.0 95 Tour was basically a PS 6.0 95 painted to look like a HPS 6.1 (red, yellow, and black, but with a matte instead of a glossy finish), with some HyperCarbon added in the hoop to make it stiffer. It swung lighter than a PS 6.0 95 and was indeed stiffer in the hoop. I really didn't think it added much power over the PS 6.0 95 but it did have less feel IMHO. I thought the PS 6.0 95 served better than the HPS 6.0 95 Tour and it also has a sweeter feel. It had the same 16x18 pattern as the PS 6.0 95.

The nCode 6.1 95 is more powerful and stiffer than both. It also swings heavier than both so is less maneuverable. Both the N6.1 95 and the HPS 6.0 95 have a more muted, detached feel than the PS 6.0 95, which has a raw, direct feel. The n6.1 95 also has a thicker beam so it feels bulkier. They are very different racquets. It would be better to compare the n6.1 95 with the PS 6.1 Classic and the HPS 6.1 since that's the line it's derived from. The HPS 6.0 95 is from the PS 6.0 line. The 6.0 line and the 6.1 line are very different.
