    If you have tried both:
    1. Is the K90 easier to hit with?
    2. Does the K90 give you more control and more power?
    3. Did you buy the K90?

    In my opinion, the K did everything better than the n. In addition, was a bit easier to swing, and had much sweeter feel at impact.

    Yes, I purchased it.

    1. I only hit with the n90 with very loose, worn out strings, so it's tough for me to say whether the k is more forgiving. I wouldn't say one or the other is significantly easier to play with, they are both heavy, low powered racquets with high control.
    2. I would say the K certainly has better feel, leading to better control. In my opinion, the power level is similar, although more consistent in the stringbed with the K. The biggest difference between these two racquets for me was feel. The K 90 has better feel, which gives you better control.
    3. I bought 2 k90's.

    1. Its roughly the same IMO
    2. IMO the K90 had more control but a tiny less power
    3. Yes

    the k90 "feels" better than the n90. Yes, only in the sense of how it feels when racket/strings meet the ball. The n90 "feels" better in the hand (i.e. it swings easier; more freely).
    So now it comes down to whether you like the extra (slight) heft of the k90?
    If you do, or you dont mind, the k90 will feel the same to hit with compared to the n90.
    More spin from the k90, but similar control/power (very noticable on the backhand slice).
    Yes i bought one.

    Wilson have done a good job with the k90 in the fact they have actually upgraded a racket for the better not just stuck some crappy material in it and given it a new paintjob. They actually listened to what people want....well what Breakpoint wants! and given us the racket Federer is using.
