Excuse the question but I haven't really kept up with the latest frames (only what I've been interested in) so I was a bit puzzled when I saw a picture of Michael Berrer's racquet. It didn't look like the kBlade and that was about all I know.

Any ideas?

I don't know but it does look like the K-Blade Tour paintjob to me:

If it is a paintjob, my guess is that it's a PS 6.0 95 with a K-Blade paintjob judging from the cutouts in the throat and the shape of the hoop and shape of the beam.

I was hoping a pro was still using a 6.0 95 but I'm guessing it's a PSC 6.1 (18/20).

If the composition, balance and flex is different, do you still consider it a PS 6.0 95?

I'm basing my judgement from the mold used. I can't possibly tell the composition, balance nor flex from a pic. But, of course, the balance can be changed aftermarket.

That's the [K]Blade 98 paintjob.

Yea its a KBlade 98 racket because of the white by around 4-5 o'clock on the outside of the frame

When was the last time you saw a KBlade with PWS at 3/9?

I thought they gave racquets with PWS a K95 PJ?

But that would be the rational thing to do. So they don't.

rationality and wilson do get along in the same sentence. if they were rational they would still be making PS 6.0 85 in st vincent

It's a pro staff, pro staff's head shapes are very circular. Check that out and compare AndrewD's pic w/ Breakpoint's pic. Break's pic of the stock image is more oval like a head racquet. It's probably a pj of a pro staff maybe 6.1 or 6.0 95.

100% pws on there... it is kinda surprising they would give it a kblade pj over k90/95
