    What are the differences and similarities or these two rackets? i was thinking about getting rid of my apdc and trading it for the k90. i am a 4.0+ level player and play about 5 times a week. I am in my last year of competitive high school tennis and will most likely go onto college and play club or possibly for the team. what would be the better choice for me?

    no similarities, and all differences imaginable. Id say stick to the APDC, The two racquets are miles apart. You can alwys demo it, who knows it might suit you. But I just want to let you know it will be a radical change from the APDC.

    yes the apdc is way easier to play with. Also both play completely different. The k90 favors a flatter hitting style where as the apdc favors more topspin. I would demo the k90 but prepare to put some hard work in to play well on a consistent basis.

    what dont you like about the apdc to decide to trade for the k90? both are very great frames. i dont agree with how roddick said that the k90 is more suited for flat hitters. it is very spin friendly. the apdc is just more spin friendly.

    serve: k90 because i was never able to serve with the apdc very well
    groundstrokes: ill give a slight edge to the apdc
    volley: both are good but the feel department will go to the k90
    returns: k90 will give you the stability and the apdc will have more maneuverability

    The K90 favors both flat and topspin hitters. IMO, you could get more spin on the K90, than the APDC.

    Anyways, The K90 offers a lot more control than the APDC, and is quite powerful if you consistently hit the sweetspot. And it depends what you want from the K90, that you don't want from the APDC.

    If you like spin, then K90 works.
    Flat, K90 works good in that too.
    Control, K90
    Power, I'd say equal.

    These two racquets are like night and day. Are you choosing between them because Nadal and Federer play with them?

    try both. we cant really tell you which one u like better. theres no need to switch if unless u find something wrong with ur current frame (that cant be fixed easily by proper technique)
