    In the new Wilson K Factor models there is a new technology called "[K]ompact center", Wilson says it's "directly inspired by world #1 Roger Federer" but the Wilson K Factor KSix-One Tour 90 doesn't have it, look at the pics:

    The ksix-one tour's center is more [k]ompact than the nsix-one tour's. Look a bit more closely.

    It looks the same to me :D why isn't Kompact Center in the Wilson K Factor KSix-One 95? it looks the same as the Wilson K Factor KSix-One Tour 90

    yeah the problem is that it doesn't have the konnector and the kontore yoke technologies. wilson was making it seem like all the wilson rackets have all the "technologies" but if you look at each rackets page on TW, you see that they only have select ones.

    I compared my K90 to my Dunlops (both 16x19) and the cross strings in the middle (4-6 strings) are spaced wider apart. They must compensate for this by making the rest less far apart. So the K90 has a more open stringing pattern in the hitting zone.

    Not sure why you'd use the term Kompact to describe this.

    ^^^^

    Wilson is talking about the throat of the racquet, not the string pattern.

    I think it's [k]rap too.

    For crying out loud!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The new KF does have a more "COMPACT CENTER" than the Ncode (we are talking about Fed's racquet). The new KF has a longer pallet, so the throat area is compacted. Why do you guys not get it???:confused:

    the consumers that bought Kfactor know that they may not be good enough for the racquet not the other way around. prince on the other hand cheated by implying O3 Hybrid tour would be Black's choice.

    Nobody that has anything to do with Prince EVER said anything like that. That was created purely by posters on this board.

    Pretty obvious if you look at the HT and look at what he was using, absolutely nothing in common.

    Regardless, if you bought that racket due to the fact that you thought James was going to be using it, you're an idiot.

    If you buy these rackets because you think Federer influenced some gimmicky technology that has been incorporated into them, well... You're sort of like the HT guys.
