Remember these ads?:

Couple that with the fact that Federer was so utterly successful with this PJ, and I'm not talking about just collecting GS after GS, but achieving record-breaking and milestone-achieving ones, such as the elusive French, the record-breaking 14th, and the epic 5th setters at Wimbledon (with Nadal and Roddick), you have a racket that has been burned in the image of diehard and casual tennis fans alike. This is very influential, dare I say powerful, in affecting one's perception of the very subject at issue: the racket.

Then again, what do I know, I'm not a pyschologist nor an advertising exec!

All I know is that I like the K90 PJ the best.
Well, I don't think there's a bigger Federer fan than me on the planet, but I absolutely HATE the K90 paintjob. Give me the PS 6.0 85 paintjob with which Federer never won anything with and I'd be very happy.
