The spec of ncode61 is quite similar to HPS6.1 95, does the new one plays better?
only a few people would be able to answer that one, it hasn't even come out yet.
I've tried for 2 hours, along with the ncode 61 tour and tour 90. In my opinion, the 61 midplus is quite similar to the hps 6.1, except that it has more power and is softer. However, I can't give a good comparison as my HPS 6.1 is much heavier than a stock HPS 6.1. As for the 61 tour, that too was quite soft. Power was adequate and control was nice. However, I actually liked the Tour 90 better. For me, I guess I don't like soft racquets. I didn't find any manuverability problems with the Tour 90, therefore, the 61 tour felt the same. Power is about the same, perhaps a little more for the 61 tour. I just felt that the Tour 90 was crisper. Other than that, they felt the same.
You cant just play for two hours and tell the difference between three rackets. You have to with it for atleast 5 or more days with the same strings and tenion to really get the feel of the racket.
I know, but that is just how I felt within the two hours. As for the strings, everything was the same. Wilson Sensation at 56 lbs. I still felt significant differences within those two hours however. But I see what you mean.
To me, all racquets feel bad for the first or so week. After that, if it's good, then it plays like a dream. Even if i tried these racquets i would have to play with them for 2 weeks before i know if the racquet is good or not. Although, some racquets, you can just look at them and they play bad.
