    I'm changing my ncodes six-one 95. I'm 40 now, so I need a more maneuverable and powerful racquet. I'm interested in the Head microgel extreme pro. Is it easier than the ncode? or should I go for the microgel extreme (not pro)? I tried the latter and I liked it but can't find a demo here for the pro.
    I'm a topspin baseliner with 1hb.
    Any advice? Thanks

    Thanks. Te pro is lighter than the ncode but it's less head light so I don't know if it's easier to maneuver. I guess it should be more powerful than the non pro.

    I would recommend going to the MicroGel Radical MP before going to the MicroGel Extreme.

    I think the MG Radical MP is a much better racquet than the MG Extreme - more feel, less stiff, more stable, more control, plays surprisingly great for such a light racquet, whereas, I found the MG Extreme to just play like you would expect a very light racquet to play.

    Thanks, but what about the pro version? It weighs 335g and the sw is 332g. I wouldn't say it's a "light" racquet.

    Even the Extreme Pro felt way too light to me. It's swingweight felt more like 320 or less to me. I would think if you're coming from the nCode 95 that both Extremes would feel way too light to you. Although I haven't tried it, you may also want to look into the MG Radical Pro. That also looks like a good racquet.
