    I have seen two forms of Wilson ncode ntour 95 tennis racquet on the market (product number T7655 and T5644S). I wonder if there are any technical or structural differences between the two, besides that T5644S is pretrung and T7655 is not.

    At the Dick's Sporting Goods website, the description of T5644S is "Ntour 95 with Ncode technology ".

    This is very similar to that of T7655.

    I asked the Wilson peeople online and this is that I got--
    "They are two different racquets. The T7655 is the NTour 95, a perfirmance racquet. The other is a Tour 95 prestrung perforamnce value racquet."

    Could anyone tell me whether these two racquets are actually the same, only marketed under two different covers? Thanks!

    I can almost garantee that it's bs. The only thing that's different between the frames is that one's prestrung with some crappy synthetic gut and the other you have to string yourself. Psh... Marketing these days.

    I think you're right. It's a marketing gimmick: the unstrung one is the "premium player's racquet"; the prestrung one is the "tweener".

    According to TW,these two racquet are the same-- "We used to sell the T7655, now we carry the T5644S. I believe the only difference is the T5644S
    comes strung from the factory."

    Wilson people claims that "on a prestrung racquet, they use Sensation 16".

    It depends on the racquet. Many prestrung Wilson racquets are strung with Wilson Syn. Gut 16g or 15L.

    They are pre-strung with Wilson Extreme Synthetic Gut. Wilson is closing them out getting ready for the K version of the frame. That is the only difference.

    The standard prestrung string for Wilson's in Australia is Wilson Sensation 16 (really bad string)
