    I thought that the BLX 6.1 90 was the "new" version of the KPS88? Thin box beam frame, hefty, head light, etc..

    No, I think the BLX90 succeeded the K90, not the KPS88 (which was supposed to be Pete's racket). There is no news re a successor for the KPS88 AFAIK. Perhaps wait for Wilson to come up with yet another retail version of the Sampras racket.

    Seeing as how Sampras is retired and with Babolat anyway, and the trend is to push lighter rackets, a return of the 88 is pretty unlikely. The only difference between the KPS88 and the K90 is weight, which is not a big deal to add.
