    Been using the the PS Tour 90 for a while,
    And have been trying the k90 I can't believe how different they play.
    The k90 seems to play heavier, even though the specs are the same.
    I feel the older version swings faster, maybe it's just me.
    Do the newer BLX versions also feel different?

    In the place where there is no darkness.
    Wilson's quality control [read: Lack thereof] ensures their racquets are a grab-bag of random specifications.
    My Pro Staff Tour 90 may be very different than yours. Ditto [k]90.
    Even with full natural gut my Pro Staff Tour 90 feels like @$$.
    Having said that, the kFactor is supposed to have the highest swingweight of all Tour 90's.
    But one of my nCodes sure felt heavier, even though it's supposed to be the lightest.
    Got rid of my nCodes and Kfactors.

    Currently frequenting a BLX Tour 90. It's pretty good. Feels more solid than the Kfactor I had. Your mileage will vary.

    It may be Wilson's terrible quality control. You can have 3 of the same model and all 3 will play differently because the specs are all over the specs. Different static weights, balance, swingweights, weight distributions, grip size (even if all marked the same size), etc.

    BTW, I found most PS Tour 90s to swing heavier than most K90s in my experience.

    I have 3 PS tour 90's all within 2 grams
    The k90 is just 1 gram more, I will check the balance tomorrow
    Just thought maybe with the k90 might be balanced differently

    I have 2 K 90, 1 BLX 90 and 2 PS BLX 90. I prefer the PS BLX 90 because the weight distribution (at factory specs they are all the same, but the feel is very different playing). The K 90 feels heavy to me as the BLX 90.

    Still dying to play with this racquet. I have a morning and evening ritual every single day that I've been doing since March where I check e-Bay, craigslist, and the classifieds here to see if any (in my specs and price range) are up for grabs.
