    I've seen discussions about the two versions of Tour 90 - the one that is selling here at TW, and a lighter one (~11.7 oz) that is sold in Asia only. My friend told me (thanks Dave :lol:) Wilson just started to sell a third version in Hong Kong, weighted at ~12.3 oz. If anyone has more info on this racket please post here. Thanks a lot.

    It sound to me that Wilson just decided to sell the "western" version of the Tour 90 in Asia. I couldn't imagine them introducing a 12.3 oz. version when they already have a 12.5 oz one, but then again stranger things have happened....

    As far as I can find in the shops so far, there are only 2 models - the Asian model 313g; and the 340g in match pair.

    So this is not the box-beam version everyone has been clamoring for?

    Alan,
    As far as I know both versions of the Tour 90 have the box-style beam.

    tour 90 weight needs to go up to

    13 oz at 8 pts headlight and reduce the flexibility rating down to the low 60's to emulate a St Vincent era PS...
