    Didn't think I would need to start a new thread, but I need some insight on my next racquet.:???:

    Right now, I've been looking between the nTour, nBlade, and LM Prestige. I'm not sure what to choose, so can anyone help me? Just explain your experiences with each [if not one] racquet. List some specs with each racquet, if you can. Thanks a bunch in advance!!:)

    Telling us your playing style will help greatly, and what your looking for in a racquet.

    What racket are you using right now? Buying some more of them isn't an option?

    Let me be the first of a few guys to tell you that the racquets you asked about are all very different. Why did you choose to ask about these three?

    I think that out of the three, I would say you should choose the Wilson nCode nTour, or, if you can get it, and this one prefferably, the nTour Two. It's a bit of a stiff stick, but if you don't mind, then other than that, it is a wonderful racket. The weight is 10.2 oz., and 27.25 inches long. I don't know what else you would like to know, but I hope that you like this racket. Also, I would have to suggest that you try all three of these rackets out for a couple days each so that you can really see which one you like, instead of just going by people's advice... Good luck!

    Umm, I would say I'm about a 3.5 - 4.0 player. I like to put a lot of spin on the ball and stick to the baseline.

    I have a few friends that had each of these rackets and I borrowed them to test them out. I personally like the nTour [puts a lot of pop in my serve], its a pretty good racket that I would most likely buy, but I don't have as much control as prestige with it. Scratch out the nBlade, not cool for my taste. The LM Prestige gave me a lot of control, but I kinda play funky with it, I don't know why.

    that's wierd. i would say the nblade is sorta inbetween the lm prestige and the ntour in terms of what kind of racket. not quite as crazy a players stick as lm prestige, but not headheavy/light like the ntour. thats wierd you like those two but not the one in between...

    I know, for me I guess it has to be one way or the other. You can't have 'em mixed.
