    Let's assume the above quotation is true, then what will be the difference(s) between the Pro Staff Tour 90 and the new K Factor Pro Staff (apart from the 'K Factor' technology)?

    Theoretically, the kPro Staff sucks compared to the PST90.




    I base this on extensive theoretical deduction from purely hypothetical data.

    This thread just proves how much time one can waste on posting craps on the internet and in the mean time working in a fastfood resturant is their career.

    The kProStaff isn't out yet, so how are you realistically expecting good feedback?

    Yep, it is strange how people want to know how a racquet plays, when the only thing we have seen about it is the paintjob and know absolutely nothing about the specs, neither has anyone had it in his hands to tell us how it feels in play.

    I like the colors of the KProstaff! Does anyone know any details on the racket?

    Like when it is due out?

    Not a lot of people are going to like that racquet. A lot of people don't have the wrist strength to control a racquet that heavy with such a small head size.

    Although I am going to try the racquet out and I'm hoping I will like it. I'm currently using the same racquet Djokovic is using. I completely forgot what it's called lol, but I think it's 12.1 oz strung and has a 93 square inch head size.

    LOL

    In most cases I disagree with bashing someone for lack of knowledge, but in this case I couldn't agree more. Assuming he really couldn't remember what racquet he uses, he still could've taken the three seconds required to get off his ass and go check. :)

    I think it will have a bigger head than the original and lower swingweight.

    The balance points of the PS Tour 90 and the K PS 88 are quite different. It is interesting why Wilson has decided to make two different rackets specifically for Pete Sampras.

    I think the K PS 88 is closer to the actual lead taped Pro Staff Mid that Sampras used during his professional career.
