    Since neither of them probably use what they are advertising, it probably doesn't really matter. However, in my opinion, I feel the ncode is better than the NXG. The ncode felt softer and more solid. I had more control using the ncode. The NXG just felt weird to me. The versions I tried were the mid and miplus for the ncode and only the midplus for the NXG.

    arent he mid and midplus completely different for the ncodes. One is like the orig PS6.0 85 boxed frame and the other is a new 6.1 with a rounder frame. So wouldnt both feel completely different

    Oddly enough, they didn't feel that much different. Besides the headsize difference which was obvious, everything seemed pretty close. The midplus has more power and was a little lighter. Didn't notice any difference in the box and round beam. Feel was about the same.

    i havent tried out the ncode, but i have to say that the nxg is a pretty good racquet it is stiff, unlike most players racquets, which i think is good

    coria uses a POG 100 Longbody and Federer uses a 90" PS 6.0 custom racquet.
