Heard a rumor month or so ago, Wilson plans to update the Surge and make it part of the Ncode Group. I have to say the Surge is a great designed racket; hope they keep the same specs. I switched to the Surge 3 months ago from a Ti.Radical and it has improved my game. Used the Ti.Radical for 4 years, great racket, but lacked a little pop due to the dense string pattern. Tried all the Liquid metal crap, and yes it was crap; Head would have been better off sticking with the ti.Radical, much better designed racket. Interested in the Ncode technology because the racket will not break down. I usually string my rackets at least once a month with poly, and read where the rackets will deteriorate over time. Ncode supposedly fixes that issue. I found this link on an earlier post about Pro’s and rackets. Worth reading. http://sports.espn.go.com/sports/tennis/usopen04/news/story?id=1872892 If the pro's don't use them why should I?
