Anyone with a Wilson NCode 6.1 95- what are you using and why?
Wilson NXT 16 here at 56lbs. I use it because I used a kevlar hybrid previously and got tired of the lack of feel and low power. And if I get tired of that there's several strings I've got my eye on to test out:
I primarily use gut (BDE, Bow, VS Tonic) in my nCode n6-1 95s. I'm always at the net and like soft strings. I've used Technifibre X-One biphase with good results, too.
VS Team gut17g] @ 68#
Larry, how long does the VS Team last you at that gauge and tension?
Check the sig. I use the Rough to give me that extra spin because I mainly hit flat and less spinny. Xcel for comfort.
Lux BB alu 56, I love the racquet with Poly, I haven't found another string combo that I even like the racquet with
When I used them I strung them with Prince Synthetic with Duraflex near 60 lbs. Tamed some of the power and still felt pretty good.
lux bb alu @ 58
Hurricane 18/Gosen sheep 17 @ 58/60
Gosen sheep 17 @ 60/62
Gamma Revelation 17 @ 60/62
I'm currently using a blindtest string and I LOVE it. I'm not sure what it is but it's similar to Luxilon.
I've tried a Multi/Poly combo and hated it, I used synthetics and it was decent but I'm LOVING the poly. I may try some natural gut after this just so I can say I tried everything, but I also don't feel like I will love anything more than my current setup.
Oh yeah, I'm using 52lbs.
hey 156mph serve,
when you find out what that string you're using is, can you let us know? thanks
ps.. what do you like so much about it?
My Ncode 6.1 95s are strung with Gosen polylon ice at 68 lbs with 3 inches of lead at 3+9.
hurricane 17/ superfine play 16 all at 62lbs, on an 18x20 frame tho
klip legend 17 (M's) + laserfibre supreme 17 (X's)
sure thing... another tester said this is VERY close to Signum Pro Poly Plasma... you can try that if you can't wait.
I like this string because just like any other poly, it doesn't move. It seems to give me a lot more bite and spin on the ball.
I always feel that the n6.1 95 was a bit too powerful. balls just flew on me... the poly tames its power... i can really hit out... my forehands have been godly... lots of spin, lots of pace and very heavy.
this string also is much softer than regular polys.
Luxilon Timo @ 52lbs. Plenty of power and holds tension well.
Prince Duraflex 16g @ 59m/60c
What's a good combo of string types?
Separate names with a comma.
