I currently play with the MW 200g. And have been since "they" were new. Love the control. Very maneuverable at net. Love the weight. The racquet justs lacks that little extra pop. I've tried to string w/ less tension, alot of different strings,etc... All to no avail of getting a little extra power. I cant sacrifice all those things I mentioned just to get more power. This racquet being a very"dead"racquet helps w/being arm friendly imo. What I'm getting at is the ncode 6.1 a little more powerful? I'm thinking of the 16x18 pattern for a little more spin. The weight is almost the same. I find that most of the more powerful racquets are too light. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
