    I am ranked around 100 in my area and I can't believe how many juniors play with Tour 90s on this forum. It is incredible. I have trouble with that racquet - the extra weight, the small sweetspot, and the lack maneuvrability. It is pretty amazing you guys are so good.

    Well, here is my equipment list:
    2 X nSix-One 95 (current sticks, but really interested in the nBlade)
    2 X nSix-One Tour 90 (for sale; now I really appreciate Federer's talents after playing with these)
    1 X Wilson Tour 4 Red Team 6-Pack Bag

    I really like hitting with the tour 90 as a "fun" racquet. felt amazing on forehands but not so great on serves and defensive shots. i'd get one to hit with for fun but never for matches.

    Why do you say that? Is it too demanding for you in matches?

    Chances are they are not. Outside of these forums there are so many FedFans using it that think they are good enough.

    I am suprised so many of you juniors ony have 2 racquets, and have different types of racquets. I am a firm believer in finding what you like, and having 4 set identical racquets so you never have to worry about it. From everyone I have talked to, 4 racquets is pretty much the norm for any decent tournament player.

    I thought you said that they were the same racquet? If they are, then I will probably get the nps if I can find one, because it will be cheaper.

    I was considering getting a vantage one but decided not too. Mainly, I love my racquets (in signature) so I found no reason to fix something that ain't broke!

    Yeah it certainly is a great stick, so much spin, so much control and I've found it extremely effective on the serve too, much to my surprise.
    Why'd you give yours away? What was your Spectrum's successor?
