How about power level of the n-code 95? I read that the n-code 95 is more flexible with the rest of the specs being more or less the same, yet, the power index is rated higher than the HPS 6.1 in the TW review.
Do players who have tested both agree that the power level of the n-code really is higher (despite the softer feel)?
And should I compare this softer feel with for example the ROK?

How do power levels of n-code 95, n-code 90, and ROK compare?

(I never thougt the rok was as low powered as the review mentions)

thanks!

I strung my n-Code 95 w/ Wilson NXT 17 @ 52 lbs. With this set-up, I seem to consistently miss long by about 6-12 inches, so I'm going w/ NXT 16 @ 55 lbs. next time....and yes, this racquet seems to have more power than the HPS 6.1...it is also more flexible and a bit more comfortable (especially on off-center hits).

The only problem with the TW reviews regarding power is that the numbers they give are not relative to anything. There is no benchmark...just pure subjective numbers. I would highly doubt that the N6195 would actually be more powerful than a similarly strung HPS61.

I agree with rooski...lighter and flexier than the HPS all equal less power theoretically.
