I was wondering what the differences and similarities are, because I like the K95, and was going to buy it. Nole is my favorite player, so I had to see what y'all thought about the KBT, it's hard to get a demo at my local tennis store.

well, i would not buy a racquet because you like the player.
i'd buy if you stroke mechanics or game strategy are similar ...

e.g. if you are a serve and volleyer vs. a baseliner
if you tend to open your racquet more or close more, hit more flat or hit topspin...

etc.

I like the kF95 much more than the kBlade. The latter just did not have the stability for me (minus any lead tape customization). With more weight at 3 and 9 o'clock and some inside the grip, the kblad was more stable than stock. the kfactor95 was ready to play our of the bag/box :)

good luck

But which K Blade are you referring to? The KBT is definitely a stable stick.
