There doesn't seem to be any great difference between them.

Plenty

The Npro is 18x18, kinda like the Head Radical.  a bit less powerful and more flexible than the Npro surge (16x19).  i havnt used either, but i assume they play nothing alike.

well I haven't gotten it yet and I don't think that it'll be strung. But I might go for either 55 or 65 depending on whether I decide to go for more power or control. As far as you racquet goes, there used to be this thing on Wilson's old website that matched u w/ your raquect after a mini quiz but they don't have that anymore. I think that if you're going for a slightly larger sweetspot, u should go for the second one. But the thing w/ that racquet, as opposed to the n6, is that it only works for one specific type of play, so if u decide to change your style to suit high level players, you're gonna have a hard time.

my current racquet is 18x18, im assuming u ment that the Surge ncode is the one more for one type of play?

also, i prefer head sizes 100 or lower.. on the tenniswarehouse site they gave a better description of the racquet

but wilson, am i right that u ment that the nPro98 ncode is the one for more than one type of play?

yeah that's what I meant. I also like tenniswarehouse for racquet discriptions b/c they have a lot of racquet reviews that give u a general idea of how the racquet is.

Were u gonna demo the n6 as well? If so, I don't think that u should get midplus b/c I've heard nothing good about that one. The Oversize hos all the good reviews. check this out to see what I'm talking about and pay attention to the headsize be4 u read the review...

Npro has a bit less power than the npro surge, less spin because of the denser pattern, bit more control.  The Surge swings heavier.  I would say that the Npro is a more powerful Radical while the Surge is like the Pure Drive with a bit less pop.

well, first off, it's pretty ugly. Unless u have extremely powerful strokes, don't expect many winners w/ that one. However, if u are more of a serve/volley/tactical player, then it might just work. It seems like one that a very advanced player would use though.

The customer feedback is always good, WB. Nothing personal or anything but whenever you reed those kind of reviews, they're always really good for every racquet.
