    Where can an Asian K-Factor (websites, emails)? I was told it was lighter, but if its lighter then would the racket be made out of different material? And if it is then would I loose the quality of the racket?

    The Asian K90 is 11.3oz - so noticeably lighter than the US version.
    There is no difference in quality, materials, etc. It is a lot more maneuverable I find and you can really whip through the ball much better with it. The bad news is that it's no longer available for sale (unless you find some old stock somewhere) and apparently Wilson won't be making Asian variants of their frames in the future. I switched from the US k90 to the Asian K90 early in the year and have not looked back.
