How does this racquet play compared to the nsix-one (both the 16x18 and 18x20 versions)? is it even worth trying out?

I thought the nPS was way more stiff compared to the nSix-One 16x18. I like the nPS a lot better. It is very stable for such a light weight.

imo it suks, get the ncode 95 16x18 instead...its worth the extra money...

well i use the nps and the lightness is not a good thing...i am a relatively weak guy but i would much rather prefer a heavier racquet with more heft...when doing strokes it just doesnt feel as solid...also feels unstable on heavy serves, volleys, etc.

thanks. I did hear it was lighter than the nsix-one (16x18, which I happened to like, by the way). any other input?

I use the nPS 95. Got them 6 weeks ago. It did wonders for my game, I was struggling for control. The racket feels very easy on the arm. It is flexible, I like that, and it is no problem to play 4 or 5 sets during an afternoon.

The racket is very spin friendly, some people suggest that the dense string pattern shouldn't help spin but in this racket it does! My whole game has improved with more spin on my grounstrokes (I go through strings 2 -3 times a month) and my single handed backhand is at its best.

I tried the n6.1's and they were too heavy for me (I am over 40) except the n6.1 Team (European Model).

According to Wilson and some other people in this group, the Wilson nPS 95 is the same racket as the n6.1 Team (European, 18x20 289grams). The difference is that the nPS (in USA) was $95 against £130 for the n6.1 Team in the UK ($240 at the current exchange rate). So I got the same racket at less than half the price. I do not regret my choice.

It is probably worth demoing.

Cheers,

I've been playing with an NPS for about a month. I have played all my life with players racquets in the 12 ounce range and was looking for something a little different at my advanced age of 38. The racquet is very whippy which is great for putting extra spin on the ball and it is a very good control racquet. I actually like how flexible the racquet is compared to other Wilson models. However, it is just not stable enough to handle very hard hit balls. I could trick it out with lead tape, however, I've just ordered a n6.1 18x20 and I think that will be more to my liking.

so is the 95 head a problem for any of you guys or is that something you get used to?
