    Okay, as you may know I currently use the nCode 90. I tend to hit the ball 95% of the time in the center of the string bed, but a little higher up. You know? Like the higher center of the string bed, that's where most of the wear is.

    Anyway, I like the feel of the spot I hit on my nCode 90...but would I have the same success hitting the ball in that spot on the kSix-One 95 16 x 19?

    Pure curiosity. Thank you.

    I personally don't know but would like to demo it. Anyone with comments on this stick compared to k90?

    i would say it is slightly lower than center in k95 16X18.
    don't think they make a k95 with a 16x19.

    If you assume TW specs are accurate (and match your specific racquets) and assume an axis of rotation of 10 cm from the butt:

    n6.1 Tour COP = 53.21 cm from butt; and
    k6.1 95 16X18 COP = 54.79 cm from butt

    I cannot tell you where that measurement lies in each racquet's head, but the COP in the n6.1 Tour is closer to your hand.

    That said, COP is only 1 of 3 sweetspots.

    The 90 is slightly more head heavy than the 95, therefore the sweetspot is a bit 'lower' in the 95. However, since the 95 has a larger string bed, the sweet spot is a bit larger. All that said, you're talking very little difference, perhaps 1cm surrounding.
