Favorite Federer racket PJ (i.e., paintjob)
With all the recent hype/rumors swirling around lately regarding Federer's new frame (see, I thought it would be fun to reminisce by recalling all the different paintjobs Federer featured throughout his pro career and asking you gents and ladies what PJ you like the most?

I'm listing all the different PJs Federer used, beginning in chronological order starting with the Wilson Prostaff 6.0 85 Mid-China up to the "leaked" image of the upcoming Fed frame.

1. PS 85 6.0 Mid-Production Chinese
2. HPS 6.1 Silver W
3. HPS 6.0 Yellow W
4. PS Tour 90
5. N90
6. K90
7. BLX90
8. PS6.190(?)

I'll follow this post with pics of each PJ so that no one has to draw from memory what each racket looks like.

As for my fav, the K90. For me, the K90 features the perfect amount of a dominant color (red) offset by a white background, detailed by subtle, but at the same time, edgy/radical graphics and text, making for an overall, well-balanced, symmetrical, eye-catching, and aesthetically pleasing PJ.

So what PJ fancies you?

What is up with the BLX swirls. Did wilson do any consumer testing at all?

i am really looking foward to the new one. i use the 95 right now, but when the new one comes out i may out right by the new one. i also like the ncode pj too.

1. N90, easily.
2. PS85, classic.
3. PS90, good enough

The rest look like they ripped off the design from a snowboard.

The ncode line is one of my favourite paint jobs ever

1. N90 - nice symmetric PJ with a simple but classy look. not to mention the swiss/canada flag color scheme that fits federer.
2. BLX90 - asymmetric black red swirls with a little gold that kinda worked
3. K90 - Meh, nothing special here. No character to the PJ. kinda reminds me of other brands of rackets like dunlop.
4. PS85 - Looks too last generation. black matte finish make it looks like something you'll see in a car repair shop. not to mention the german flag color scheme lines that makes it look like something people used to break down the berline wall with lol.
5. HPS90 - At least PS85 has character, this just says old and ugly.

Good to see BLX is hated. It looks like golden rainbow barf.

Each PJ has gradually grown on me, after you see him use it for 3 years straight, you kind of get sick of it and want something else.
