    Excuse the question but I haven't really kept up with the latest frames (only what I've been interested in) so I was a bit puzzled when I saw a picture of Michael Berrer's racquet. It didn't look like the kBlade and that was about all I know.

    Any ideas?

    I don't know but it does look like the K-Blade Tour paintjob to me:

    If it is a paintjob, my guess is that it's a PS 6.0 95 with a K-Blade paintjob judging from the cutouts in the throat and the shape of the hoop and shape of the beam.

    I was hoping a pro was still using a 6.0 95 but I'm guessing it's a PSC 6.1 (18/20).

    If the composition, balance and flex is different, do you still consider it a PS 6.0 95?

    I'm basing my judgement from the mold used. I can't possibly tell the composition, balance nor flex from a pic. But, of course, the balance can be changed aftermarket.

    But that would be the rational thing to do. So they don't.

    It's a pro staff, pro staff's head shapes are very circular. Check that out and compare AndrewD's pic w/ Breakpoint's pic. Break's pic of the stock image is more oval like a head racquet. It's probably a pj of a pro staff maybe 6.1 or 6.0 95.

    100% pws on there... it is kinda surprising they would give it a kblade pj over k90/95
