    Heard a rumor month or so ago, Wilson plans to update the Surge and make it part of the Ncode Group. I have to say the Surge is a great designed racket; hope they keep the same specs.

    I switched to the Surge 3 months ago from a Ti.Radical and it has improved my game. Used the Ti.Radical for 4 years, great racket, but lacked a little pop due to the dense string pattern. Tried all the Liquid metal crap, and yes it was crap; Head would have been better off sticking with the ti.Radical, much better designed racket.

    Interested in the Ncode technology because the racket will not break down. I usually string my rackets at least once a month with poly, and read where the rackets will deteriorate over time. Ncode supposedly fixes that issue.

    I found this link on an earlier post about Pro’s and rackets. Worth reading. http://sports.espn.go.com/sports/tennis/usopen04/news/story?id=1872892

    If the pro's don't use them why should I?

    There's a new paintjob Surge out here, but I'm pretty sure it isn't n-coded. It is double braided still, as it crries the weave logo. It has the same pattern as the H Tour but is a golden / dusty yellow instead of the black on the H Tour and black where the H Tour is orange. There's no 5.1 index anymore and I think the specs are pretty close to identical. Someone else said that it might be on Wilson's German site but I haven't looked.

    Hey barry,

    You mentioned that you switched from Ti.Rad mp to Surge and found that Surge has more pop to the strokes. I know that you also said that you tried many of the current LM racquets before going to Surge. Just curious, since you liked your Ti.Rad mp a lot but wanted a more open string pattern and more pop, did you ever try Ti.Rad os? If so, how did it compare with the Surge?

    I sent an email to Wilson about the ncode surge, and they wrote back saying that they had no plans for such thing, and they are discussing their 2005 models at their November meeting.................

    That's not an N=code surge. That's just an updated cosmetic of the Surge for Europe. I saw a few satellite players using them.
