    Hi, I have 2 ncode 6.1 16x18 stickes. One turns out to have an SL4 and the other a L4 sticker.
    Does someone know the difference in these 2?
    Thanks!

    Are they the same weight?It used to mean something in relation to he weight of the frame.An "L" would normally weigh more than an "SL", doesn't happen so much these days as if there is a intended weight difference it's often a different frame name too.

    same weight

    Thanks for your notes.
    They are labeled as having the same weight. I haven't put them on a scale, but they don't feel any different.

    In the days of woodies SL was super light, L was light, LM light medium, M medium and finally H for Heavy. Have not seen SL unless it was on a JR stick.

    4 is the grip size and the letter designation according to Wilson about 5 years ago was the designation of where the frame was made. Head has an S and L designation but that is for the swing.
