    I was trying to find it on the archive site. Anyone who's been around a while know around what month and year they were selling these?

    I wish TW would be able to roll out a new paintjob frame again. It's one of the things that makes TW special. That was a great find when they pulled it off.

    Thanks BP. I would trade any of my racquets for one of those.

    i have also wondered why they never sold the 6.0 85 with ncode pj..

    Courier for one was known to be using it.

    Maybe they will have some KFactorized 6.0 85s soon

    I guess Wilson didn't have any left over with the nCode 90 paintjob to give to TW. :(

    The PS Tour 90 was on the market for such a short time before the nCode 90 replaced it that perhaps Wilson made more of the PS 6.0 85 with the PS Tour 90 paintjob than was needed by their sponsored pros before they all had to switch over to the ones with the nCode 90 paintjobs. I think when the PS Tour 90 first came out, it was supposed to be the "Sampras racquet" and be on the market for longer but with the sudden retirement of Sampras, they decided to move the introduction of the nCode 90 to earlier, thereby, being stuck with a supply of ones with the older PS Tour 90 paintjobs.

    makes sense... so we shouldnt expect too many Kfactorized ones either from that logic

    Thats too bad. But, I have a St. Vincent and I prefer the late China models. I guess I'll have to send my racquets to China to be painted by one of the fake makers. ;-)
