It seems like everyone is demo'ing the ncode nsix-one and then trading in their old racquets for this beauty. I was wondering if anyone has had any bad experience with it, or if every tennis player should just go and grab one now? And please let me know if it was 90 or 95.

I use the ncode 95. The 90 was a bit heavy for me. And if you want to buy one that I got last week contact me @ sushiricecracker@gmail.com

be sure to buy at authorized/reputable places- too many fakes being sold.

well if i get one i can't afford 200$ each at local shops or tw. what about e-b-a-y stores or a seller who is only selling one (multiple auctions are obvious give aways)? is that safe enough?

I found this racquet unwieldy. Demoed it for a few days and decided not to change to it. I used the Pro Staff Classic for 8 or 9 years, so i'm familiar with its heritage. And I'm not a small guy. I found this just felt clunky trying to snap around on the serve and felt sluggish getting around on groundstrokes. The old PSC and HPS 6.1 never felt this way at all. That was the primary downside for me. The other one was that it has the nasty hypercarbon/ncode feel which I'm not fond of, but that's more a personal preference. Not a great racquet like the PSC was, IMO.

I had the nCode 6.1 90. The only thing I didn't like about it was that it had a lot of power. I had to string that racquet at 66lbs. Other than that, I think it's a great racquet.

I demoed the nsix-one 95 when it first came out from the Wilson rep that came to our club and the weight was like 12.5, even said so on the throat. It was great to serve with but now I see that the same racquet being sold is lighter, like 11.7 ounces. Whaddup with that? (sorry if this has been talked about before)

I bet it's 11.7 ounces "unstrung"

Thought the 95sq was a fine racquet. Not as good as the HPS 6.1 due to less control but still quite a nice racquet. I certainly wouldnt be trading in my old racquet for one but its definately worth a demo.
The 90sq I didn't like as the balance feels wrong. Far too unweildy. I realise it is popular but Ive yet to see a club player that can really do it justice so it isnt one I recommend to my club mates or students.

well between bab pd+ and ncode nsix-one 95, which should i get?

most important thing to me in a racquet is serving, and the 2nd being volleys.

i play mostly doubles, where i try to take the net as much as possible. and singles i spend about 60% of time on baseline and 40% at the net.

this is my first season playing but i play no less than 40 hours a week and can stand my own against friends who are 3.0-4.0 level players.

i have no health problems and am not worried about negative effects of tennis on my health at all, i'm only 17.

thanks for responses guys.

bab is stiff n6-1 has more flex and is heavier. for volleys n6-1 wins definately

I agree with smittysan89. I just ordered two NSix-One 95s today through my coach and I can't wait. This week I played a Babolat Pure Drive Team Standard(4-5 hours), Wilson NPro 98(3 hours) and NSix-One 95(8 hours) and I went with the NSix-One. It did not have the same power on the serve as the Bab, but it was not underpowered by any stretch. I liked the extra control and stability. At the net, it just feels right. Ground strokes are solid and easy to place. Overall, it just feels much, much better to me. The Bab PD, was good and would be better for someone who wants more power than control. I had a little problem controlling the PD at times. The NSix-One really has some good pace and is better for hitting the heavy ball, in my opinion. For doubles and net play....I could see this being a very valuable weopon to have on your side.

Sluggish, weird ncode feel - what's good about it? I'm sure the Wilson pros have a custom frame because nobody playing for a living would use this stick.

i hit with the nCode95 today for a bit. it's an ok frame performencewise i thought but a bit harsh and raw to me and there was this wierd type of oscillation for lack of a better term..a fluttering of the frame if you will. thought it had a fair amount of juice on everything but sliced backhands while spinny seemed to hang there for me inviting my opponent to punish the ball

You play tennis more than 40 hours a week? Gee, that's like a full time job!

Anyway, I think the nSix-One 95 would be better for volleying and for doubles than the Pure Drive Plus. Much better control IMO.

Yes, that's a lot!!! That's like more than 7 hours a day, 7 days a week!! I don't think even Federer plays that much tennis. If he did, he probably would have burned out by now.

Wow, I need to quit then. I wake up at 5:00 in the morning and play an hour, then go to school. Get home at 2:00 pm play 2 or 3 hours. And at about 9:00PM I play for another hour. So thats like at least 30 in the weekdays. Then I play for 8 hours on Saturday(Wake up at 5). And about 6 to 7 one Sunday.

Nevermind, More like 45 hours a week. Sorry.

Some on this board called me a monster once:D

yeah, if you don't have a job or school yet it's pretty easy to put in 40 hours a week, the more you play the more people you meet, i met a lot of coaches giving me free lessons. so i have lessons 6 times a week alone for a total of 12 hours, and then playing with various friends. it adds up pretty quick. but thanks guys, i'm picking up a couple ncodes soon, if i don't like them, they should be pretty easy to sell considering how hot they are. what's a very durable string to slap in there, i'm thinking prince synth gut with d?

I demoed the nCode 90 & 95 recently. Never like them. Unwieldly and felt weird. IMO, they're overrated. Anyway, to each his own.

yeah your strings must cost a TON of money! thats like replacing strings twice a week no?

i wish i could play that much but unfortunately the public school court is not open after school anymore because of the girls season so i have to work around that...i really need to get a membership at the local club so i can always have court time, now i just have to find somebody to play with me all the time

I played wit the ncode 90 for almost a year, and I just switched for the 95 'cause i thougth I needed more power. The 95 feels heavy and bizarre at firts, but after a week it feels easier than the 90.

I play with the Ncode 95 6.1 and the Prostaff 6.0 95. Ncode is definitely more powerful but less feel and control. Prostaff 6.0 95 has more feel and control that I could feel hitting out with no problem, with Ncode i have to do more control. I string the Ncode 3-4 pound heavy to keep in place. But the Ncode is good for the day that you feel weak on power. But over all, I still prefer the Prostaff 6.0 95 over the Ncode anyday.
