Has anyone experienced chipping on their k90? I talked to the folks that string it and they showed me where they mount rackets so I'm sure it couldn't be them. I'm getting alot of chips in the paint, some very deep, around the throat/handle area. I'll post pics up when I get home later on.

Thanks in advance

Oh yeah... this is very common with Wilsons and Babolats from my experience.

The Heads I've had do not chip as easy, but the Wilsons and Babolats chipped REAL EASY :-|

yep, both of mine are chipping more than nblades did...
Luckily, I don't care about that...

Reeeeeeaaaaally.... That's just odd... I mean, I don't abuse my rackets whatsoever so I'm just baffled as to how these chips occur... It's not affecting the performance of the racket in any way... It's just annoying that it's happening...

I have a couple of chips on mine which I have no idea what caused them. I string my own sticks so I know if it was that.
The matt finish PJs on Wilsons seem to be more prone to it.

After stringing my K90 I noticed that I somehow chipped part of the frame. The chip is very small and hardly noticeable but I have no clue on how I chipped it.
