LMAO. What are the specs? Is this one of the tweener K's? Looks pretty thin. Any other ones? It's got that same little hole/gap on the throat that looked like an illusion on the other frame.

He would never have to shell out x amount of dollars to have racquet strung again. :cool:

I'm not a huge fan of the cosmetics of the nSix-One Tour 90.....this K Factor Tour 90 lookin' thing looks like a bloody tissue.

Maybe I've got to see it with my own eyes....

the racquet looks slightly used....some scratch marks on the lower left end of the frame

the frame itself looks just lke the current ncode 90....

specs are being read, not only by me but by others, in the other k factor thread...

looks like 340g/12 oz 90 sq in, 12 pts HL 16 x 19

virtually same specs as the current ncode 90

The k-factor name sounds like the Wilson engineers are pulling another fast one on us. One k-factor that I know of is the atmospheric effect on the bending of radio waves. Wonder if the new name will apply to the bending of graphite?

It's all marketing BS. It's virtually the same racquet. When sales of the Liquid Metal line slowing down, Head drilled a hole in their racquet and called it Flexpoint. Now, wilson is just doing the same thing, slapping a different paint job and call it "K" factor.

That is one ugly looking racquet. It reminds me of the original Head Radicals from the mid-90's.

I had the same reaction, but I'll wait and see.

That is one ugly duckling. The current ncode paintjob is much nicer in comparison.

Yeah I might try and get an nCode when they go on sale.

I liked the graphics on the Hyper Pro Staff Tour 90 a lot, so I was a bit disappointed with the graphics on the nSix-One Tour 90. If this is how it will appear, I like the graphics on the kSix-One Tour 90 better than those on the nSix-One Tour 90.

Seems like the discussion on the new k factor is centered on the 90. What about the 95? Maybe they can bring down the thickness of the 95 to 20mm. The 22mm frame (current model) feels too bulky to me and is too powerful. 20mm would be better. Any rumors out there on a 95?

there was never a grey paintjob, the picture was just in grayscale. notice how everything else in the picture is a shade of gray. all of the pics are of the same racquet

And that was the first thing I noticed too.

Well it probably is the same as the previous model, but everyone will go out and buy one and swear blind it's a better stick. You gotta hand it to those Marketing guys, they know how to sell racquets!;)

Btw this is the most blatant paintjob-as-new-racket I've ever seen. I reckon Wilson said to Roger, "Listen, we need to sell more racquets, so we need you to adopt out new line."
Roger: "What? I've only lost about 10 matches in two years with this thing! I'm not changing anything!"
Wilson: "Hmm, fair point. But can we paint it a new colour at least?"

Yes. It's a negative image. Open it up in your favorite image editor, then negative the colors.

Yes, why do you think there is so much light blue/aqua, the opposite of red?

Maybe Kevin Federline and Roger Federer could do a K-Fed cross promotional thing here. It would suit the racquet's looks perfectly. This racquet looks like Kevin Federline's album sounds.

Yes, but Federer probably said that in 2001 or four paintjobs ago. ;)

Well the negative looks so much nicer. Now I don't really like this racket anymore.
It's got a cheesy name, and the paintjob reminds me of some kinda toy.

Um. I might be inclined to agree with you if it weren't for the aqua blue. Can you say 'headache' in three languages??

If you're saying that K-fed is awesome...well then I'll stab you with a protractor.;)
