    I play with the kteam and my regular stick is the current (k)arophite print. I bought another on the boards and was happily surprised to get a (k)arbon print one, happily surprised because I just wanted to get ahold of one so I had both prints. Can anyone attest to a difference in feel or any other factors between the two prints, either on the kteam or on other k racquets? I haven't had a chance to hit with it yet, just wanted to ask the question as I'm not sure when I'll be able to hit anytime soon.

    It has already been ellucidated on this forum that they are the same thing....Wilson switched nomenclature due to a copyright issue.

    It was also found that the rackets labeled with "(k)arbon black" were defective and played a lot worse that those labeled "(k)arophite black"......

    This is the story: they first came out with Karbon line. But Karbon was already a registered mark and so to not be sued they changhed it in Karophite.
