    just wondering what racquet you guys think would better suit my game between the 90 and 95 16x18.
    i am an aggressive baseliner, semi-western forehand (like to play with a lot of spin), two-handed backhand with a strong first serve (inconsistent one unfortunately), and i like to go to the net to finish the points off quickly. although my game is not "extraordinary" the weight of the racquet is not a deciding factor for me.
    let me know please and thank you!!

    You've already answered your own question.

    K95 because you require a less demanding frame

    I love my K95, although it's the 18x20 version. I like the extra control and I don't have any problems generating top spin. I probably would get more under spin if I had the 16x18, but I mostly hit a flat, one handed backhand anyway.

    It's more forgiving than the K Tour 90, which all of us guys not named Federer need. I play a very similar game as you and the K95 is the stick for me. It's great for volleys too by the way, head light for maneurvarability, and the control is outstanding.

    You're description states that you use a two handed backhand so in that case go with the K95. The K90 is a good racquet but its probably too demanding for you unless your at least a 4.0 or higher and you would probably struggle hitting two handed backhands with the 90.
