    I’m back.... JoelDali was right, I just couldn’t stay away. Anyway, let me first apologise for removing all my photos when I left, guess a red mist just descended on me at that time...should have taken the good advice from some of you guys to just ignore the negative comments... will do that now. I can’t quite restore the photos to the original threads so I will just put everything into this one gradually. I’m still trying to get hold of Roger’s BLX90, quite a lot harder than I expected, but if any of you manage to score one, do post photos . Good to be back.

    Hey VGP, nice to hear from you again. Been a little busy but kept up with the forum. Noticed something about the K90s and I wanted to ask you and the other racquet experts like aimr75, ericsson, drakulie, samster...maybe I'll pm you guys.

    im sure this has previously been covered but did you ever figure out the weight and balance of Fed's K90? I have seen what other sources have listed but I just wanna make sure what yours are.

    Let's not get into the specs discussion.

    Those of whom are familiar with the previous situations will understand why.

    Great to see these photos Fabfed:)

    My friend has actually won one of these Federer personal racquets in a charity auction. In fact I'd like to ask you something, can you please message me through my profile?

    I'm always right.

    When Alpine Cadet comes to spoil the thread, please ignore him.

    Anyone else notice that the retail version shoes and RF's shoes are not the same? Shoes are PJ too?
