    Can't compare these two. These are on different spectrums.

    I just went from PS85 to APDC, man, without spin everything flies.
    The feel is really awful, the 2 year old polys on my PS85 felt better than fresh sensations on my APDC.
    However I am a spin player so I'll stick with it. Its got plenty of that.

    I have N6.1 95 16x18 - have hit with APD once

    all i can say is that APD seems to absorb the impact more? Perhaps due to its technology - I don't know for sure, im not that racquet savvy.

    I think Kelz is talking about Cortex one. The Original one is a lot nicer and plays a lot better in my opinion because of the feel I get from impact. I must play with heavy heavy topspin with APDC.

    Though both racquet n95 and APDC have been known to launch balls the n95 is a whole lot nicer and diserable in my opinion.

    I have played with both, but not for awhile. FYI 4.0 player 2 hbh, semiwestern forehand. Try to play all court, although I do like to grind it out at times. So rkts are differnt, Wilson felt a little more solid, you could sya a hot spot or more realisticaly a smaller sweet spot when struck really makes the ball zip, not a bad thing, as long as you are consistent, and there is the rub the APDC or non c has a much bigger sweet spot and good for this squirrley bounces on the clay, I served well with both, groundies edge to the apd for the above mentioned reason. Volleys goes to the wilson although I could volley fine with the apd, I play alot of doubles as well as singles. The wilson is given a more flexy rating 65 and feels so but not a flexy rkt ala the volkls
