    Observing del Potro's Wilson K 95 paint, it looks like matt in comparison to the shiny K 95 which is on the market.
    Has anyone looked at it from close? Is it like matt or is it tv making it look like that?

    It is the PJ of another mold (older frame).
    I have seen a few times exactly the same selling on *Bay -- matte paint saying K95...

    I believe there is (at least one) another thread talking about Del Potro's racket...

    Thanks.
    I performed a search but did not find any other topic related to the matt looks of del potro's racket.
    I don't like the shiny look but would never change that racket for such reason.

    When it comes to sheer determination, commitment and composure during a match I think I am in the top 150. When it comes to talent, skill and technique I doubt I can be in the top 1.000.000...

    I would try the sales department of the forum but I guess such kind of post is more possible to attract people that sell fake K 95 than someone who has a real matt one.

    And have in mind that I am interested in a real matt K 95 not a K 95 paintjob...
    I'd appreciate any help or advice how to get a real matt K 95... real meaning 8 points hl strung and 350grams weight strung as well...

    the real term is with the "e." It just means not shiny

    for example, a stock k90 has a matte finish; a stock k95 does not. :)

    I think in the wilson series of rackets the Tours are always matte...
    Where I live in europe I doubt anyone can paint the K95 and make it look matte...

    I have a matte pro stock Kfactor 95 obtained as a gift from a friend of mine who knows some of the players on tour. :)
    It has lead installed from 10 oclock to 2 oclock inside the racket head which i am going to remove before i hit with it tomorrow. May sell it actually.

    LOL.

    He is actually super nice humble guy. Was very happy to have been able to meet and string for him.
