N Six-One 90 easy Spin access?

you have got to be an animal to get great topspin from that frame. You must be strong enough to produce the right amount of headspeed while also maintaining good technique. Most demanding frame i have ever hit with. Compared to my Yonex or even my volkl v-engine mid, i produced more spin with both of those frames than with the ncode 90.

its wat im using right now.. i've leaded up my ncode tour 90 to 400 grams.. its a nice frame if you have the right string.. i used to use a full poly job (klip reactor) at 62 lbs.. and it felt boardy but now i've actually reduced it down to 57 and using synthetic gut.. much better.. i don't think u'll be able to get a huge deal of spin with it unless u string it at a lower tension.. but its a solid racquet

Whats up with Federer is he playing with much Spin?
He plays not much Spin or?
Federer doesn't use that raquet. He uses a special raquet (paint jobbed to look like it) given to him by the people who control the tennis world so that he can dominate the sport. Haven't you read anything on these forums?!

lol ripper funny stuff. but onto a serious note.. fed is strong.. and fed strung his loose i think around low-mid 50's.. if your strong enough and used to the racquet.. u'll be able to generate spin with it like most racquets.. but for ppl who first use it? i doubt it..

not to brag but when i was stringing mine on 62.. i didnt have much spin at all but now.. i can generate spins with the ncode more than i can with other racquet.. weird? even im confused

I am using the Pro Staff Tour 90 and there are some differences wrt ncode (with which haven't played), but I have no probs in this respect.

the top is easier to generate than with 6.0 85 for sure.
and it isn't much different in this respect from my POG Mid, which is an ace for topspin.

and my Tour 90 has about 12g lead, and am not that big (Sampras's weight:)), thus it's all in the technique ... get that low to high racquet head trajectory

An average of 20,000 RPMs, just like a F1 V8.

I had the complete opposite experience than DXS. I hit great topspin with the racquet and it was much harder to control flat shots.
I agree that it can generate much more spin than the 6.0 Original and with a good amount of time to prepare, I'd even dare to say it has more spin than my RDX500 Mid. Having said that, my RDX is strung at 62/60.5 and the nCode was strung at 52.

It's relatively difficult to hit top spin......

I find it relatively difficult to hit top spin with this racquet, if compared with the 95 version. However, it is easier to hit slice due to the weight. The racquet head speed isn't too slow, though, if compared with other beasts like LM Prestige Mid, which has a much larger swingweight.

I don't think it's difficult to get the spin with 90. It may not be as easy to get loopy shots at first as other ones with which the slight lift/brush up produces loopy spins. But unless you depend solely on those kind, it's good, and even for the loopy ones, a little adjustment would be good enough (in my case at least). Though I think tougher part might be kick serve. It did not feel as good as other bigger head/open string racquets.

I get decent spin with the 90, but it really boils down to your technique.

Federer generates a tremendous amount of spin on his shots. That's one reason why his shots are so heavy and so hard to return and deal with. He hits those dipping crosscourt passing shots, those super low bouncing slices, and lots of topspin on his groundstroke rallies off of both sides. He also hits great drop shots with so much backspin that the balls barely bounce forward at all. He's able to generate all that spin with his tremendous racquet head speed. Thus, he'd be able to hit with lots of spin even if he were using a frying pan. ;) It's his genius, not the racquet.
