Never got to use one. Just curious. Looks like a great stick.

it's very similar to n6.1 and K90 Tour, IMO

very nice racquet, if there were no n90's, this would be my choice.
Kinda stiff but great control, especially volleys.
And when you say, never got to use one, their not that old, its actually not hard to find a few these days

serves took me like 2 hours to get used to. spin friendly. groundstrokes are amazing w/ this racquet. for me, slices are hard.

Finally got to playing with my newly aquired 6.0 90. Not as heavy as when I first tried a N90, but I did get a little stronger.

Feels and looks great...the best volleying raquet I've ever used. Back Hands were stable and forehands were controlled. I could hit these nice flat shots with ease but the small head and tight stringbed means I need to be technically sound to create lots of topspin (if need be). Back hand slices were nice indeed. If you don't get lazy you can do what you want with it.

Prob the best looking 90 in my opinion.

640x480, do you mean the prostaff tour 90, not the 6.0 90? Unless you somehow have Fed's racquet!

It's a great stick. It has a solid feel, stiff, heavy and hits every shot well but it has more power and solidity than the PS 85, especially from the baseline. It doesn't have as much feel as the 85 but compared to Wilson's more recent "players" frames it's a regular CNN.

The Tour 90 is different from the nCode 90....It doesn't feel muted or blunted like the nCode, and I preferred its balance much more than the nCode. The nCode always felt awkward in my hand.

But the Tour 90 is VERY, VERY, VERY DIFFFERENT from the K-90. I could never play with the K-90. It feels cheap and flimsy. Others love it, however.

Wilson could easily sell all three of these raquets, along with the PS 85 and 95.

They're ALL very distinct frames that will attract and please different types of players. Head has about 3 or 4 player's sticks, if I'm not mistaken. Prince has at least two. Volkl has 3 or 4, as do Fisher and Babolat.

Instead, Wilson's gimmicks and games drove me away from them permanently into the lovely arms of Vantage.

Maybe they'll learn, one day. I'm not holding my breath.
