new Wilson ncode pro
bought this yesterday for 110.00 us dollars,comes with string and bag.
but i use bg 80 at 24 tension for it
they have 3 models,this is the heaviest at 95 grams,lightest was 85-87 grams
will test it out tonight and realize whether am a fool or not....lol
will compare it against my MP99,same string and tension
it got a new design cone for extra gripping

My doubles partner has one. It is a bit head heavy but still manuverable. It's an excellent all around racquet.

Hong Kong Guys can borrow from me before making the buying decision. It is really a very critical racket.

Hi,sorry to get back so late...was busy past days.
name in the racket is Wilson Npro,this is a SPECIFIC MODEL of the ncode series as in the 95 grams model with "for advanced player"
from my experience playing..it has a weak smash,my theory is that the stem is too soft flexible.....its like playing/hitting with a sponge/banana when you want to smash....compared to the mp99..it is really weak....control aint bad..will have to play more....but to any snasher out there..you will be disappointed...i purposely bought the heaviest racket to get the power....also because it is too flexible my arm hurt a bit unlike the yonex racket.
will tweak it again and change to higher tension at 28..maybe theres hope it could be useful....but am pessimistic....
maybe its unfair comparing it to the 99,am afraid it cant even be a backup racket for me
also this one is made in china

i have the wilson n1 and it is STIFF...
i mean... REALLY REALLY STIFF
you can swing the racquet really hard but it will barely bend so i think it's a power racquet for powerful people...
i reviewed it already somewhere in the forums... probably in the "racquet review" section

I purchased an NCode N1 this weekend and it's a very powerful racket, the most powerful racket I've hit with to date.
To put it into perspective, a 50% effort smash with the N1 = 70%-80% effort with my NS7000! And the N1 came with this Wilson thick, non-repulsive string. I can just imagine how powerful it will be when I string it with BG-85.
Powerwise, the N1 made my NS7000 feel like a toy racket.
Regarding feel/touch shots, I'll wait until I get BG-85 @ 29lbs. (like I do all my other rackets) to give a comparable assessment.
I'm going to use my N1 tomorrow and surprise my coach with my newfound power.
I'm thinking now I should go with all head heavy rackets, who cares if I can't defend fast enough.

Is the 95 grams version widely available in HK? Is there a sticker to indicate the weight and grip size of the racquet like Yonex?

Has anyone string this baby to 30 lbs?
