The only difference from my other BLX90s I can find:

1. Under the butt cap the is no separator with 2 olive shape holes
2. Black painting is not shining - it's more matte.
3. Code on the sticker starts with W, on others with V.

Weight and balance are on spec. Plays good.

Purchased new from trusted person.

Thanks a lot for the help.

yours looks legit.

the fake that i recently saw from a customer looked REALLY good, i had doubts that it was a fake.

but 3 things gave it away:
1. matte wilson sticker instead of glossy and holographic
2. leather grip was poorly wrapped and wasn't smooth.
3. blx trapdoor looked off.
everything else looked like it was legit.

I just bought another BLX six tour, and it's dull in color compared to my original. They feel the same. Did the cosmetics change a bit, or is one of mine a fake?

Also, the first one I purchased, here from tennis warehouse, has a clear looking gel/foam in the handle, while the newest one, from another well repected seller, has a cork colored, yellowish foam in even channels. Are there some differences?

Thanks.

The one on the left is the new one. My original looks so different inside the handle. Are they both authentic?

Silicon in the handle of the one on the right?

I think so. It's clearish-white. The one on the right was purchased when they first came out.
