Final decision of switching from n six-one 95 to n six-one 90

So, guys I am making my final decision of switching from 95 to 90 frame. What do you guys think? I don't know what to do. Because I have only played with the 90 3 times but it feels so good. But you know how you try some racquet and you fluke playing with it? What if I get it and can't play with it. But I just compared the 90 and 95 today and 90 feels a lot better. The only thing I had trouble with the 90 was serve. Groundstroke (2 hand-backhander), volley, slice all felt better with the 90. Now what should I do?

I never try a racket before buying it, because I'm scared of the whole fluke thing <_<

You should buy the racquet, and if you wind up not playing well with it, give it to a very good cause - me! I'll send you my shipping address...<G>

If I were you, I'd be weary of falling into the "honeymoon period trap." I have had the nCode Tour 90 for a little over a month and it felt amazing when I first got it. However, after playing with it for a relatively extended period of time (I play every day, with only a few exceptions) I realized that it wasn't the best racquet for me. Although hitting with it was fun and I played well with it, I reiterate that it wasn't the best frame for me. I played with the nCode 6.1 95 my senior year in highschool and the Tour 90 is definitely a better frame (at least for me) so I'd advocate switching from the 95 to the 90 but make sure you've demoed every other mid you even have dreams of playing with first. Good luck with your choice.

Hey Rog. Keep in mind that Wilson player frames have a very good resale value.

If you were to buy one now, keep it in good shape, you could play with it for a

month or two. If you do not like it then, you could resell it and only be out

of what? 30$-50$?
 
Hmm really? Then if I was to switch, I could sell my n six-one 95 and get like 2 90 frames. Im guessing that Wilson won't drop the prices on n six-ones for a long time at least until a new players frame comes out which will be like 2007?

I think you should try a full on serious match against someone with the same rating. I see people all the time play awsome with new racquets during practice, until they get into a couple real matches and find the racquet is too demanding or something of that nature

You might go to Eb*y and check to see what the N6.1 95 is going for.

Also I agree with Lakoste, get into a serious match. If you still think you want the N90, then you can

do as I wrote above if you change you mind.
 
I have played with both for two years and finally I realized that the 90, while feels a lot better, is too demanding. Almost to an unreasonable degree if u are not a pro.
Maybe is just me, but I would advise not to fall for her. She's a man eater!!.

It also depends what level you play at... as I moved up the rankings, I found a smaller head is harder and harder to handle, because the better players rush you a lot more, and give you much harder balls to handle.

Try adding enough weight along the handle of your 95 until it matches the weight of your 90. Then it will be a fairer comparison.
 
Well, what I found in the 90 that I didnt in the 95 was that great feel. I don't know why but the two racquets play very differently. 5 inches and the weight has a lot of difference. I agree with the people who say it will be demending once I get to higher level tournaments. I am now 4.0 and hope to soon reach 4.5. So, I will try the 90 in a match either this week or next week.

The N90 does have much better feel then either of the 95s.

It is not just the 5 inches and minor weight that makes a difference.

the N90 and N95s have different compositions:

N90: 10% nCoded Hyper Carbon / 70% nCoded High Modulus Graphite / 20% Kevlar

N95: 10% nCoded Hyper Carbon / 75% nCoded High Modulus Graphite / 15% Kevlar
