View Full Version : How to resolve demo results

08-15-2006, 05:18 PM
Just finished playing 4 demo racquets, now have to decide where to go with the results (see thread title "? from old guy" for background).

Wilson ncode 6.1 (18x20 strings) - great control on groundstrokes and volleys. 90 + % of groundstrokes landed inbounds and near where I wanted.
Serves were average but hit a few 1st serves into the net.

Wilson ncode pro open - Had a touch more power on groundstroke but some sailed long and didn't have the same degree of feel as the ncode 6.1. Same with the serves, they were a little harder but same percentage went into the net.

Head FXP radical decent racquet but didn't click for me.

Babolat Z lite - Groundstrokes didn't have feel or much control and many sailed long...
However, This racquet was a cannon on serves. Literally every serve was powerful and went as directed.

Now... How do I get a racquet that serves like the babolat Z lite and has groundstroke feel and control like the ncode6.1 18x 20?

Still looking to get a volkl C10 to try
Thanks for the help folks.

I would say lead up an ncode 6.1. If you can take the weight, that is. You might not like the extra weight, though you probably will.

Perhaps you should trying the 16x18 version of the nSix-One if you want some more juice on the serves.
