    I have two Wilson nCode nPS 95s that I ordered from TW a couple years back, and I'm suspecting that one of them might be fake because of differences in the tension specs on the racquet.

    Both say 23-27 kg, but one says 50-60 pounds, while the other says 53-63 pounds. Converted, 23-27 kg is 50-60 pounds, but online websites say that the tension of the nPS 95 is supposed to be 53-63 pounds.

    I was wondering, are misprints such as these common?

    hmm I'm pretty sure if you bought them straight from TW they are 100% authentic racquets. Did you buy them at the same time? Maybe Wilson changed or corrected a misprint in different batches...

    Yeah I got them at the same time, and it seems like TW is a legit source for tennis equipment, but you never know.

    I know for a fact that the nCode Tour 90 and the nCode 95s went through more than one paintjob amongst earlier and later batches. That's probably the case. Have you contacted TW directly to ask?

    No I never really was very concerned about it enough to e-mail TW about it, but just wondering if anyone had any idea why they would have different tensions (and slight differences in the boldness of some of the words on the racquet)

    That's just Wilson for you. The Pro Staff 6.0 and 6.1 both had different tension ranges printed on the frames of earlier and later batches, too.

    so do they play different from each other? that's prolly the best way to tell.

    No, honestly they don't feel any different from one another to me.
