    pwned.

    I was watching something like SopCast or whatever it was called, I took it off my computer but Federer was using that new ugly racquet (no offense to those who like it).

    I love the part where he says "gives a little bit more control, they say. I feel like it's feeling well."

    In other words, 'they say this new material gives you more control but I can't tell any difference (if Federer can't, how is anyone supposed to?) but at least it doesn't mess with my game'.

    What a sterling endorsement but, seriously, what can Federer say? The guy has barely lost a match in the last few years so, unless he wins the Grand Slam, how can he hope to say it improves your game (standard racquet claim)?

    He seems way too casual about the racquet, as if Wilson just handed him something and it feels cool. It is difficult to say he is lying - when the whole paintjob business is based on lying, is it a lie to lie on top of that? I am sure he has play tested the racquet extensively, if it is really a new one. If it is the old one with a new pj, he is trying to minimize the lying by laying it all on Wilson and pretending not to know.

    So... is it safe to assume that you think Roger Federer, World No. 1, tennis-legend-in-the-making is a liar and is lying?

    Just curious. :confused:

    No federer's quote is "It's nice to be important, but it's important to be nice"

    well one of my coach's students was at the nasdaq and somehow got an actual federer racket broken. he showed it to my coach and my coach said it has the prostaff pj right under the ncode pj... i gess that means he does use a prostaff with a pj

    This is the bottom line

    Thoses of you who have used wilson sticks for years will agree that the n-codes have brought your games to a whole new level.The K in K-factor is for the designer of the N-codes his name begine with a K.He won racquet designer of the year so wilson is congratulating him with a racket in his name so I'm told.Don't think Pete's Racquet is the same as rogers your mistaken.Pete was unfortunate not to have n-codes.Other wise it would have been not fair to the others.LOL Imagine Pete with a N code oh oh
    If this frame is an advancement in racquet technology then us wilson players would be stupid not to buy, regardless the price.My worry about this frame is I think it's a toned down version of the N-code less pace.If they feel like toothpicks than they can forget about it.No sale for me boys.I still am excited to try.There has some good posts and Bad I just hope it's all that I exspected.
