View Full Version : looking for a new racquet, currently using hps 6.1

Hi everyone.

I am looking for some advice on which racquet out of the new player's sticks out there, can compare to the hps 6.1.
Preferably it should have around the same level of power and good control.

I play an all-court game, have reasonably good groundstrokes and come into net if possible.

All help would be appreciated

Try the Volkl Tour 10 MP or new V-engine MP. I currently use the Tour 10 MP. It's more flexible than the HPS 6.1 but it has a surprising amount of power for a flexible player's racquet. It is also more forgiving than the HPS 6.1. I think the HPS 6.1 serves better than the Tour 10 MP because it's stiffer, but I prefer the greater control and touch on all the other strokes with the Volkl.

Why do you want to switch? What is wrong with the HPS 6.1. They're good all-court racquets. However, if you must switch, take a look at the nCODE six ones, both tour and 95. They hit nice. Also, try the Tour 90 as that was pretty good. The 90s did have less power than the 6.1 though.

I want to switch my racquet because i feel that i am getting too much spin and not enough power. When i played with the tour 90 i got more power. I also feel that i have a improved serve with that racquet. I am going to demo the the n code tour 90.

From the review it sounds like the nCode 95 is pretty powerful.
