Does anyone know the exact specs yet of the new prostaff n-codes 90 and 95? I am particularly intersted in weight (I guess TW is wrong), swingweight and flex!

Does anyone know if the 95 plys more flexible than the HPS 6.1?
I really like the flexibility of the tour 95 (a lot more than the hps 6.1) but that frame is too light.

thanks

Here's what I got from a catalouge brought by a wilson rep.

nSix-One 95:

Unstrung Weight - 11.7 oz
Balance - 12 pts. HL
String Pattern 16X18
Headsize - 95 sq. in.
Length - 27 inches
Cross Section - 22 mm Flat Beam
Grip Sizes - 2-6
List - 199.99

nSix-One Tour
Swing Index - Fast and Long
Power - Low
Unstrung Weight - 12 oz.
Balance - 12 pts. Head Light
String Pattern 16X19
Headsize - 90 sq. in.
Length - 27 inches
Cross Section - 17mm Flat Beam
Grip Sizes - 2-6
List - 199.99

I got to hit with both of these very briefly (10 minutes apiece). The 95 felt very stiff to me. It didn't feel as heavy as the catalouge says. It was stiff, but felt crisp. Definitely stiffer than I like. Swingweight - It felt a lot easier to swing than the HPS 6.1. The Rep couldn't tell me the exact stiffness, but if I were to guess, I would say 70??? I liked the racquet, but liked the 90 better. It had some nice feel to it. It did feel stiff, but I liked the depth I and spin I was generating. The leather grip is a bonus, too.

The White bag is even better looking in person! It's crazy! Wilson did a very nice job with it! I hope I've helped.
