They each have their own unique feels, some more subtle than others. I do know for a fact that both the HPS Tour 90 and the nCode 90 contain HyperCarbon. With the K90, they took out the HyperCarbon but kept in the SiO2 molecules from the nCode 90, which is probably why the K90 feels closer to the PS 6.0 85/95 than the others. Both the BLX90 and the BLX PS 90 feel more muted than the K90, with the BLX PS 90 feeling softer. None of them feel exactly like the PS 6.0 85/95, so there is definitely more in them than just plain old 80% graphite/20% Kevlar. Also, at least the HPS Tour 90 and nCode 90 are Double Braided (graphite/HyperCarbon + graphite/Kevlar), while the PS 6.0 85/95 is just braided (graphite/Kevlar).
Wow. I feel like collecting all the 90s just so I can try this...
