    See image below. Four dots on the k90 paint job... Has anyone seen this before? I've checked the butt cap - there is foam inside. Also, all of the paint job specs appear to align with a real k90... But I've never seen this before.

    In the place where there is no darkness.
    I have.
    I've seen them in different caves across the world, from the Africa to Scandinavia, The British Isles, Oceania and the New World.
    I think it's a map, a star-map to be more precise. It was left in those caves and on your racquet by our forerunners. I believe it's an invitation.

    Are those markings on a cross tie off? It could be an indicator put on by the previous stringer to tie off on.

    Right, we need to sell more pics.

    The specs on the racket is the one that we need to see.

    Perhpas u already know the difference between geniune Specs and fake specs but just in case we have to see.

    I happened to purchase the fake one although I returned it immediately thus I know exactly what the fakes look like.

    Everything appears to be legit:

    -Foam in handle
    -Inside handle (not well seen in the image) it has a code (GBY or something of that variant)
    -12.0 oz on label
    Etc

    Though those random 4 dots do not appear to be additive.

    Also, curiously, I put the frame up to a BLX 6.1 95 and the head size appears to be the exact same - only differences being the k90 is a 16x19, much different weighting/balance, and is box beamed. While that's allegedly only a variance of 5 in^2, I still find it odd that they are essentially identical - not sure how the k90 could be justified as a 90 in^2 head size.

    I'm sure that there are plenty of knowledgable k90 users on these boards

    I've seen my fair share of counterfeit ones and those are for sure authentic.
