    First of all, am I the only one here that finds these rackets to be the ugliest things ever? I wish wilson had stuck to the ncode-like paintjob, because I think just about all of the ncodes have a cool quality to them. What one would you say actually looks decent, is my first question (lol, not that it matters, but just for fun)?

    But anyways, I was wondering which Kfactor is most related to the nBlade? I tried the nBlade for just 15 minutes, and I think that once I work out my serving issues that this will basically be the best racket for me because it lets me hit flat while keeping it in, and because its flexible. So which Kfactor is similar in those regards?

    thanks

    Lots of people hate the paintjob. Even people who are currently playing with it.

    I always liked the paintjob and when I saw it, thought it looked better in person that in photos.

    Its a great modern painjob and most of the people who say its horrible have only seen photos. When you have it in your hand it looks awesome, I think wilson have done a great job. Everyone ive talked to says it looks better than the ncode, especially younger players.

    Kfactor is way better than Ncode in play and paint, Kblade is not out yet so stick with your nblade till further notice. for people who liked Ncode paint or play better there is good news that they are on clearance. buy all you need now.

    Kfactor 95 turned out to be a big disappointment.No feel , stiff like a Babolat PD. Only plus is serves and may be one handed Backhand .N code is way way way better over all stick IMHO. resist the temptation of throwing away 200 bucks on this stick.Cant say about the Midsize version , but i heard it was better than the n code version overall.

    If you liked the nblade, you should get that and not a Kfactor because nothing is like it. There is not be a Kblade designed or scheduled to be released, besides, new technology does not equal a better racquet. Everything in the new Kfactor line has a stiffness of 67 and above with the exception of the Kfactor Team 95. That racquet is less stiff and my friend who had hit with my nblade before played demoed the Kfactor Team hoping that he would find something similar and he was disappointed saying that he felt the balance is weird and it was not similar to the nblade. Bottom line is... if you like the nblade, get the nblade.
