Anyone has experience of the new Wilson nCode racquet? I have an original Wilson HyperHammer 145 and pretty much like it. Wondering if the new nCode racquet is really that good as it is advertised. And is the new Triad II design more durable than the 1st generation.
Thanks!
Tony

I have been using the 2006 Ncode N130 for 4 years now. It is the two piece design with the rubber piece sandwiched between the head and the handle. It is an amazing racquet because unlike any other racquet I have ever tried it absolutely dampens any vibration allowing for an amazingly solid stroke even when hitting off the sweet spot.

Unfortunately Wilson discontinued this technology for the past 3 years (which is why I continued to play with this older racquet) but HURRAH, Wilson has brought it back with the 2009 KFactor K135. I played with it for the first time yesterday and it is AMAZING. If there was one problem with the older racquet it is a little heavy in the head. The new one is much lighter and easier to swing but still has that amazing vibration damping technology which allows for dead on shots and amazing precision.

Try this racquet before you decide on any other (Wilson or otherwise) and I think you will be very pleasantly surprised.

I use the Wilson N-code 145 from 2008 . Great racquet, and very good value from what i gather. I find the handle a little uncomfortable because of it's angular, but that's just me foible realy.

Hi there, I got it from Shajeeali :-), just read it and you have it. [HyperHamme 160 g]
RE: "tennis elbow", i have discussed that with a lot of proffesional players in Hungary and in their opinion there is no problem of elbow pains since you:
1. grip the handle correct way
2. never hit with the arm straight (it should be stg. like 135 degrees angle)
3. hit correctly (using the swing power, not just the muscle power)
I have to tall you, I started my squash experience from Dunlop 150 g, then I bought Head 150 g. From a year or so I do use Intelligence ix. 130 and Liquidmetal 120 and do no have any pains in my elbow neither arms. But I remember my first few months of really amateur games and the pain in m y elbow. It did dissapear the day I started to learn under the surveillance of profi coach.

Hi Slavi,
Don't know where you got that no. of 160g. The Wilson nCode serious is from 120g to 150g, of coz without the string.
In general, heavy racquet gives more power while light racquet gives more control. And most pro players are using light racquet(130g-150g) as they have enough power and want more control.
But be careful of those very light racquets, it will give you more pressure/shock on your arm. That's why sports doctor would suggest to use heavier racquet if people got tennis elbow issue.

Oh my gosh, boys and girls, you are so tough for you and your muscles and body ... 160 g. rackett ... it is like the sledgehammer, isn't it? I used to play for a while [when my inteligence 130 met the wall], with Kennex 160 and my arm still aches. In my opinion, playing with any racket above 150 g is the task for big athlets only. And please do not forget - game squash is not the power game. It is technic, technic, technic oriented game...
