    Man, he's the only one that can sport a MANbag. Is his white suit in there too after he wins it again?

    I have the bag he used last year and it looks better than this one. This one is a bit over the top.

    Think I like this one more than last years. The old one looked like a ladies hand bag w/the shiney vinyl on it. I wish it came w/the single shoulder strap on top though...

    This bag would be nicer without the Swiss flag.

    No thanks, Wilson!

    Thats the reason I bought the previous one. It was marketed as "A rare and beautiful memento of Roger Federer's Career".

    So despite the steep US$/South African Rand exchange rate, me, being a ardent Roger Federer fan, shelled out my $100 for that snazzy white/black/red K-factor bag with Roger's signature that he used for Wimbledon 2007, and was quite chuffed that I was one of the "rare" people who had one of the "only 500 of these bags" that were made by Wilson as a collectible item.

    ...That was until I saw it quite a few times. Even here in South Africa! :shock: I subsequently concluded that Wilson duped us Federer fans and this bag wasn't quite as "rare" as Wilson made it out to be. :evil:

    So now Wilson comes out with another RF Exclusive bag, and let me guess, this one will also come out in "very limited quantity" as a "special edition" to "celebrate Roger's career". No thanks Wilson. I am very happy with my "previous edition" bag which Roger used when he won his 5th straight Wimbledon title.

    Agree. I like the 2007 K-Factor Ltd. one better? Someone said only 500 of those were made. Is that true?

    Thanks.

    If Wilson claimed only 500 were made (so as to push up the price) but then made more than 500, wouldn't they be liable to be sued?
