I am looking for a Wilson K Blade 98. I know that Wilson has not the best quality control. I asked the seller to tell me the strung weight of the racket as a criterion for me to judge whether it is a real one or fake.
The racket will come strung which makes me doubt a bit because I read that K Blade 98 come unstrung...
What else should I ask him to tell me beyond photos etc?

KB98 strung is around 304 + 12/15 = 316/320 grs

What else should you ask?... Is it original? franqly have no idea, read around that are many fakes, never heard about a KB98 fake.

The one K Blade 98 has 322g strung weight and the other one 323grams...
According to TW it should be 315...
And I am afraid this could affect the balance point.
I don't care if it makes it more headlight but I would not like it to be more headheavy...

could be it is strung with poly so it will come in heavier and it will affect the balance and make it very slightly more HH.

You are right but why a new racket would be strung with poly?

From a power seller with 100% positive score.
129 euros while TW-europe has it for 175euros...
Maybe that explains the better price. It's a wilson racket that is a bit far from the specs. Wilson did not want to sacrifice it and some people are getting them to sell them cheaper...

The string on the racket is Wilson Sensation 16. The strung weight is 322 and 323 grams...
It's a bit off the strung weight specs according to TW.
