    The photos are too small and one of them has shadows. But the photo of the inside of the handle doesn't look good. The one with the two ovals looks real. I've never seen a K90 that look like the other one. I would suspect that that one is fake. Have you weighed it? Fakes usually are much lighter than genuine K90s.

    My problem is that any racquet weight that should be...

    - K90 with two holes at the grip: Racket unstrung ---> 348gr (12.275oz)

    - K90 with one hole at the grip: Racket unstrung ---> 334gr (11.781oz)

    Anyone can weigh her K Six One Tour?

    Thank you very much.

    Alex.

    I have two Ksix.one 95 racquets, both purchased new from a reputable retailer.

    In the pic with the two racquets on top of each other where you can see the strings, one of yours says "made in china" in that location - mine do not say "made in china" in that location

    In the pic with the labels - mine says "made in china" right under the "designed in USA" sticker, only one of yours does.

    I have not had a reason to remove the butt caps yet.

    sorry I couldn't be more helpful

    I own a K-six one 95 and a BLX-six one 95. Both under the cap have two holes.

    The racket with the "made in china" written on the throat seems a little fake to me,mine all do not have that there.
    You should check the following on your racket to see if it is legit:
    -4 holes near the PWS
    -grommets fit properly near the head and do not stand off
    -weight 11.7 OZ. it should read(mine is an AK90, so it says 11.3 OZ.)

    Ignore the made in china text, it can go in various places, depending on end user market and DOM. The position does not tell you if the racket is fake. It will only tell you when the racket was made, and you can read that in the handle anyway.

    Thanks to everyone, sincerely.

    I have read very much about fakes but I do not find several clear details that indicate that these rackets are fakes... On the other hand there are two details that I do not understand enough:

    - One or two holes at the grip:

    [​IMG]


    - The big difference of weight

    K90 with two holes at the grip: Racket unstrung ---> 348gr (12.275oz)

    K90 with one hole at the grip: Racket unstrung ---> 334gr (11.781oz)

    There are 4 holes at PWS...

    Thank you very much.

    Alex.

    There are several variations of authentic rackets, and there are variations to fakes. This makes determining authenticity tricky. None of the images you showed says outright it's fake. I'd need to see more.

    I need to see pics of 1) the full string bed, 2) the PWS system, and 3) the headguard

    Yea, you're fine. That's one of the variations Wilson came out with. It's either the first or second rendition of that racket. Sometimes, they forget to put that plastic piece at the end of the handle. That's what gives it a 2-hole appearance.
