View Full Version : Federer's New Racquet!!! NCODE
05-06-2004, 03:06 PM
Just got a peek at Federer's new racquet for Roland Garros. It looks very cool, it is white and red. The new Wilson tour bags will also be white. It is basically same as Tour 90 and is 12 oz. Don't really know other specs. It has specially made carbon fibers kind of like the nano tube technology from Babolat. The name is NCode or something of that matter. Does anyone else have any other info on it? Does anyone know if it will come in a 95? I just got a quick peek at it and really didn't get a good look at the specs. Looks very nice though.

but is racket weights 12oz with or without strings?

Did not notice what it said when I read paper on racquet. I just noticed 12 oz
05-06-2004, 07:14 PM
I just talked to a Wilson rep, said this will be a 98 inch head....12.5 oz
we shall see.
they should just make the 85 like the St Vincents and be done with it.

I hit with it cause one of the coach at college park had a all black painte tour 90 , he said federer will be using it at french, and they added some new technology as well, It felt just like the tour 90,

Does anyone have a link to a Website that has any info or pics of Federer's new racquet the NCode? Does Wilson plan on producing this racquet? When?

There is loads of stuff about it in the rackets section of the boards including specs and pictures.
It will also come in the 95.

Could anything be more ironic than hearing about "Federer's New Racquet" from someone who calls himself "paintjob"?

It's a ashame, because now the Tour 90's will not become a "classic" racquet, cos there just not kept on the market long enough!

I'm sure that it will remain a "classic" in the eyes of the people who use it.
I know what you mean though, it will never get the same status as the original 85 or POG.
But at least they might come down in price now and maybe I can afford one until it will probably rip my arm off after a week!

12oz strung?, what the hell are they thinking, Wilson must be trying to boost sales of lead tape.

I actually bought mine from Canada, and got a pair for US$285, which is about £160 WITH shipping!
160 smackers :shock:
Don't do it! English online shops like ********** and *********tennis are selling them at under 120 quid. This is too good. When Fed's new paintjob comes out the price will drop further. I'm gettin' one when the price is right.
05-10-2004, 02:47 PM
Yeah but he got a pair for £160, thats £80 each not £120.
Thats an amazing price, I am also getting one when the price comes down but I can tell you that the 90 head size will be to demanding for me.
I suppose I will have to choose between a HPS 6.0 tour, Fischer Pro One or continue with my POG.
So, Pro Staff Tour 90, can you please give me the email address :D
can you send the web address to me too?

Read your comments about getting PS Tour 90 cheaper from the US. I'm also in the UK, and bought one for $96 and $20 shipping. That worked out at about £65-70. I didn't pay customs either.
