    Natural Gut Wholesale: Version 4

    I am actually having good luck with NGW natural gut. I ordered the 17 guage which is more like 16 guage. It strung up nicely however, I took my time and was careful not to kink or coil (mains with smooth poly crosses) and playability has been solid nice pop, spin and comfort. So far...

    looking for a new racquet

    Thanks, i will try the blx again, Head PP is a nice frame, swings easily, but lacks pop and has a slightly smaller sweetspot. PST GT i am just not sure about, seems to do everything well just with less power than my Ncode and I am not sure I want to give that up.

    looking for a new racquet

    I used to play the wilson Ncode 6.1 95 16 x 18 and was very happy with it. I have since tried the K factor and the BLX and haven't liked either of them. BLX has good feel, but plays heavier than the Ncode version. I play mostly 4.5 dubs and some singles. I S&V in doubs all court singles...

    Played with the Pacific Xforce Pro Today...

    the pacific is one of the most arm friendly racquets on the market period. some people experience "elbow discomfort" when ever you hit with a new frame due to weight balance swingweight and vibration frequency. i would not hesitate to recommend this racquet to anyone who has had elbow isssues.

    Best Doubles Stick

    is the 6.1 95 series from wilson: Ncode, Classic, BLX, Hyper Prostaff, kfactor in that order imo. the head microgel radical pro isn't too bad for dubs either.

    Which is the better racquet Babolat pure storm tour GT or wilson Kfactor 6.1 95?

    Agree with ClubHoUno--I left wilson because i couldn't find anything by them i liked as much as the ncode 95 and they stopped making them. The babolat PST GT is just a sweet racquet. I wanted to stay with Wilson but the Babolat just out performed the latest wilson stuff.

    Which is the better racquet Babolat pure storm tour GT or wilson Kfactor 6.1 95?

    guys, thank for the input. I played with the bab pst gt again today singles. I found no drop off on mph's on first serves, and great action on second serves. My groundies were ridiculously accurate with nice pop and spin. the only area i would give an edge to the wilson 95 series (take your...

    Which is the better racquet Babolat pure storm tour GT or wilson Kfactor 6.1 95?

    I am replacing my Ncode 6.1 95's. I am a 4.5 mainly doubles all court player. I have hit with both racquets and I am having trouble deciding. I prefer the ncode version of the 95 over the kfactor, ncode feels better balanced, more manuverable and more solid at impact. The Kfactor seems a...
