Which racquet?
« on: July 12, 2005, 10:53:36 AM »
I'm trying to decide on which racquet I should get to play with. I need one that has a lot of control but doesn't lack in the power department. Right now, I'm thinking the N6-110 but I wanted to get some other opinions. I basically want an nCode tennis racquet so here are the choices.

N6-110:

I had the opportunity to test the new babolat aero drive (or something like that)
That might be the racket you`re looking for. Lots of power, great control, but if you serve and volley look somewhere else.

the n5 mid plus is an okay control frame, but iwht all of the thicker beamed ncodes, power is primary.  if you want a real control frame, the ntour 90, or sixone 95 are great frames. why are you set on the ncode line?  has the margeting got you?  if you are looking for a powerful frame then they arent a bad choice, but from a players frame standpoint, go elsewhere.

My partner just got an NCode Six One and I'm thinking about one as well (more like the N5 or N4). As far as I can tell, they are good rackets and I'm a Wilson fan. But I'm sure part of it is the marketing (someone tell me why I'm thinking about the Canon Power Shot for my next digital camera).

I use the Ncode six one and I love it.  I think for a hard hitting person its the best racket.

I did a "thing" on the wilson homepage and it said that the N5 or N6-110 would be the best choice for my style of play. I was thinking about getting the N4 but I haven't seen a price tag on it yet. I am assuning that it's going to be up in the $200 range since Venus won Wimbledon with it.

Not to mention, blue is my favorite color.

You can get it cheaper, though. Here in L.A. there's this place called the Racket Doctor and it has the NCodes for cheaper prices. There might be stores in other areas with similar pricing.

Demo prices vary from place to place. But tennis-warehouse has the best demo progarm. It's cheap and they send it your house. I think you can play with it for a few weeks before you have to return it. Definitely worth the money!

But for six ones you need to be very strong or it won't be good at all

Do you have it? Do you think you could give a review?

Thats why I use one! :))   The racket I was using before was wayyy to light, and I switched to the ncode six one and it was so much better.  It took me a couple times to get used to it too, but thats what its like with most rackets.
