i use the non K factor version and i love it to death.

A guy in my league hit with it once and said it felt like an extension of his arm.
Good Luck on the Court!!!

same as Scott, I play with the ncode. I would think they'd be similar if not the Kfactor being outright "better". I love it as well.

i've actually been hitting with pawan's n-six ones so they should be similar. i obviously have to get used to it, but i really like hitting forehands and volleying with this racket. the only thing is that i'm having a bit of trouble w/ my serves now, but i think i just need to get used to the smaller head size and the heavier racket.  ://

What kind of serves do you usually hit?

I love the fact that they are heavier racquets.  I seem to get more control out of the racquets that way.
Good Luck on the Court!!!

hit a bit with with the K 95 a while back.  like seemingly everyone here i rock the n6-1 95.  the K is a bit stiffer and more powerful.  the ncode has a bit more whip and a more damp feel

Hmmm, I have always liked the stiffer racquets.  I need to give the K a swing or two just for kicks.

Yeah, I was thinking the same. The damp feel thejackal mentioned (if i understood it right) is the same that I don't particularly like.

I just got a VIP 15% discount from Mid West Sports so I can get the KSixOne 95 for $160.65 strung with Wilson natural GUT.  Thats a screaming deal I think.

Since most gut is around $30, and I've seen some stringers charge $70 to string it, I'd say that a pretty good deal.  :good:

I have never tried REAL gut.  Should I have them string it at my normal tension??

You should string it the same as your normal synthetic gut set up, if you have one. If your normal set up is poly (Luxilon or Bablelot Hurricane Tour), you should string it a bit tighter.
Gut will feel much softer than and any string you've ever tried. To me it is worth the extra expense.
Of course that's because I string my own racquets, and I got a bunch of gut for free. :shiny:

I have heard that gut feels awesome.  Is it available in bulk spools??  I am going to buy a stringer by next week, so if its available cheap enough.....(I wish) then maybe it would be worth it.

I don't think it's made in reels. I don't the manufacturing process allows for that. What they do is take a certain number of strands of cow or sheep intestinal material that is cut to 40'', then lay it all down and slowly wind it together, while lubricating it. Then let it dry while stretched. It's not an economical process, or one that allows for reels.
