“ Wilson is one of the leading manufacturers of tennis rackets and other sports equipment. „
I purchased the Ncode N1 during Wimbledon 3 years ago. At the time it cost around £200 online and was used by players like Serena Williams. The racket was a White/Silver colour and really did look amazing.
As I stated above the price for this racket when purchased was around the £200 mark which I was not to bothered about paying. The reason for this was because I thought a tennis racket is something you keep and you pay for quality. Now if you look round the internet you could probably find this for around £80 and for that price it is absoloute bargain.
The racket is known for being a powerful racket and with it having a big head there is a lot more room for error which is a good thing. It is also heavily weighted at 9ounces which is over 250grams. This therefore means you have to be a certain type of player to be able to play well enough with it.
Style of Play
In my opinion the type of player that should be purchasing this is one that puts emphasis on their power play. This is why Serena Williams used it as shes known as being the most powerful player in the women game. I would not recommend this if your a technique player as you will not be able to get the best out of the rqacket like you should do.
Overall i did love this racket I think it really does improve your game and when you hit the shot if you hit it perfectly you really feel the racket reacting in your hand. With the price only being £80 now I would really recommend it even though they are new models out this one does everything you need for being a power player. When I let other people have a shot or two with it they can tell themselves how much of a difference it will have in their game. Hugely Recommended for a serious player.
I recently purchased a wilson K tour racket so heres the review:
The racket is very well designed and has an eye catching look to it. It is a mixture of red, black and white in to be honest, a strange pattern! The black and white contrast well and the red brightens in up a bit. I have already had several comments from people while playing at my local park about how nice the racket looks.
It is fitted with a orange grip, im not entirely sure what type it is but it is very spongy and soft which is nice for my hands. Some tennis rackets give me blisters if I play for too long but this grip hasn't caused me any problems so far thankfully.
Play-ability (if thats a word)
The racket feels perfect for me at 340g it is ideal for an advanced player such as myself. It has a relatively small head size at 90 sq in which I have found to be very effective, especially with my serve and volley technique.
I have had the racket restrung as the strings that came with it were not tight enough for my liking and were made of synthetic gut wheras I use natural gut.
"Power from Kontrol", is the slogan and the Kfactor supposedly provides 64% more control than previous Wilson tennis rackets, this racket is ideal for an advanced player with a full swing who is able to generate sufficient power to use such a heavy racket. I would whole heartedly reccomend this racket to you tennis nuts!
This is the racket (yes I know that's spelt wrongly) that I've been using for a year now and I find it very responsive. The design of it may look a bit gimmicky at first but it plays like a dream. The 'Power Holes' are simply largened grommits where the strings go through the frames but they are supposed to increase power on off-centre hits but giving the strings more travel. It is hard to tell whether they actually do this or not but the racket is fairly forgiving. If you are looking for outright power, this racket isn't for you. It has a power rating of 6.4 which means that it is designed for players with large swings that hit the ball hard. When the ball is really struck the racket does start to feel a little underpowered but there is plenty of control. Overall I would say that this is the best racket that I have played with in a long time. It is designed for club level players although it is a top quality racket.
