    to be honest, to npro open compares most to the sp black or white. all play well, basically pure drives!

    Have you hit with the SP Tour, what's it like? Also is it better than the Npro?

    what would u class as better, do u want more power or control? the npro has a more even balance and quite powerfull, the sp tour is more control orientated. i would demo both, but try to new k version

    Well i want a fairly powerful racket but i play 95% doubles so want a good serving and volleying stick with a decent SW which the SP Tour has more of

    seriously, try that and the black, but add weigth and it is amazing for serves and vols, honest! also, the k6.1 95 is a good racket for similar reasons, but has a smaller sweetspot

    But you're not nick....You have a completely different game/level/feel etc. It's personal because Nick likes it doesn't mean you will

    I agree with master stringer mitchy and say you should try both the SP Black and the nPro. They both have good pop on serves and volleys, but I felt that the nPro had more feel/touch in my opinion. But like Jonnnyf said, you're not me so you might feel differently.

    The npro will definitly be an explosive stick in doubles, I quite liked it for its combination of power and control but in the end just too much power for me playing singles.
