    I was just wondering what the difference is between the K95 and the N95? I know the K95 is made out of Karophite Black but the specs of both racquets are the same.

    With that being said, my friend has the N95 and I have the K95 and my K95 feels heavier.:-?

    ANY HELP IS GREATLY APPRECIATED

    the K95 feels stiffer and delivers more power than the N95, in my opinion.

    Swingweight for N95 is 330 and for K95 is 340 according to TW. Weight difference is negligible at .1 oz between the both rackets.

    The karophite black doesn't really exist. It's just a marketing thing.

    I second this. It's some stupid campaign to add the letter K to words that should obviously be spelled with a C. But if it doesn't really exist, does this mean that all K-Factor racquets and nCode racquets are made of the same material? Or are K-Factor's made of something else?

    I belive k factor racquets are really made of ncoded graphite, ncode racquets had hyper carbon in them, k factor dont.

    now back to topic: the n95 is way better than the k in my opinion

    the k95 has a stiffer feel while the n95 is alittle muter (and more comfy). also thought the ncode was more stable but it could hav been the QC

    Well we all assume its a marketing scheme but has anyone looked inside the racquet?

    Wow... I don't know if some of the posters here actually have any idea if the racquets contain one specific material or not...

    I mean, unless you've really sorta dissected the racquet and confirmed atomically that it's true... it's kind of a bold statement eh?

    What i can say is that the playability of both the racquets are different and therefore are 2 different molds if not the same mold but in a different concentration/distribution/etc....

    I'd go for either. Though there's really nothing wrong with the N version. The K plays pretty well too

    Someone made a thread on Broken asian K90, and there's no karophite black inside it... I'll look it up.

    With the pics in the thread, I still can't see how it is that we would know whether it's ncoded, or anything at all that you guys or wilson have claimed. Maybe that dude should send it to the lab to get it checked.... he he he...

    to clear this up once and for all!

    Its really preference between two. I had demoed both of them. K95 plays a bit stiffer yes and more power but its def controllable. Some say not but yeah... usually never the racquet. I like the feel

    I also do like the n95 it had a nice swingweight and it was comfortable.
