Aussie Open 2010, launch of Roger's new Wilson Stick: Colour/Technology.
Pictures? Anything else?
i don't buy it...gotta dish out more info than that...
We all know Fed's going to have a new PJ for AO 2010. But what's it going to look like?
is the blade version gonna rock new pj to?
we want pictaass
I wonder how Wilson will market this racket..
I has been pretty much established that Federer actually uses the [K]90 with slight modifications isn't it? Wilson has been using this information as well in their ads I think, right?
I doubt that Federer will actually switch to a new racket next year. Actually I am sure he won't change. i wonder if wilson will say that the new racket is actually he racket Federer uses.
anyone have pics ?
The New Wilson K Factor

Epic timing fail
What the hell is color technology?
gotta see this one
Pfffft. Color technology.
Reminds me of putting a sticker on a ricer and expecting more hp.
I hope the paintjob is a lot better looking than it is now. Yuck
I like the red white and black but not the design
i doubt this is true.unless fed designed this racquet himself like he did his last one.but who knows.
Most likely he will have a new pj for the AO next year. It will probably only be a pj though. I dont see him switching rackets again.
another name, another paint job, same spec.
i also know what wilson can do.
great thread (not)
This thread is useless without pics
I've still yet to have "colour technology" explained to me.
The OP said colour/technology. He probably meant a racket equipped with new colour and technology.
hello guys, this is my first post ever here but i thought it's worth reading.
i was browsing roger's official website and clicked on the link to watch the youtube vid of the 2009 wimbledon rolex commercial AND i was really surprise to see that Roger uses a racquet with a different PJ when he appears wearing the watch...
pay attention to the detail :
what do you think ?
I don't spot any difference...
it's the same racquet a K90
interesting is that i heard the same thing today when i was in a tennis shop and the seller told me that wilson is gonna release new rackets in january
i don't agree with you...
look at the handle, it's black, and pay attention to the frame, it has some orange on it, at least this is what i see.
you're right, there are a couple shots where the grip is black...
but you're wrong in saying it's a different PJ because the grip doesn't count.
the new techonology is the colour...
i casn see the ad:
Wilson Sports present the new 90 6.0 with more henenigans
the first racquet with Kleenex Colourtech fibers, that allow 50% more winning shanks from you backhand and 80% more tear absorbency....
built with the newly developed [k]rap hite graphite composite developed in swiss labs...
get the hots in with more shenenigans...
CAN'T WAIT!!!! I am DEFINITELY BUYING THAT!!!!! January seems so far away now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
fed does not use a k90, its a modified ps 6.1 tour 90. the k90 is a close approximation but no more than that.
pros do not have time to change racquets
They will market it as a 91 inch head. . I don't see him changing his racket either.
The stringers at Priority 1 have confirmed that it is a retail K90 with a little bit of lead tape added under the bumper guard.
Wilson will be coming out with new frames in January, February and March of 2010, just as they've come out with new frames around that time frame for the last few years.
I just had a meeting with a couple guys from Wilson about their clothing and shoes for 2010, and I asked them if they had seen anything yet regarding their new frames. They told me that they will see everything that's new at their sales meeting in October. Until then, I don't think anything is going to get leaked out.
Oh, Roddickslammer! You're SOOO FUNNY!!!! What will you think of next?
nothing beats laughing at ur own jokes...
well something tells me that the only change on feds racket will be colour
but it will make deluded fanboys buy new rackets so that it looks like feds
and i think even fed said himself that he had been using the same racket since 2003
so... if u wanna play with feds racket, u should play with ncode
obviously he doesn't know. he's just hoping.
Imo this doesn´t look like the K90. Looks more like a K95, the head size is definitely bigger I think.
It´s completely irrelevant though, maybe he just wanted a bigger head since the suit was harder to play with.
I think it is supposed to be called X-factor. They are supposed to add this X-polymer inside the matrix of the Karophite. and it is supposed to make the racket bend at the throat and give you more control and power.
That screenshot makes the racquet look like a really fake K95. Perhaps the grip is black to match his suit?
I think i figured it out.
P1 said that he doesnt use a leather grip under his OG? so maybe its the grip that he has under the OG.
also the racket looks distorted becasue of the mirror.
It looks bigger than a 90 but I think for commercials/ photo shoot they will not always use 'their' racquet but of the same brand.
Remember 'Tennis' magazine a few months ago, Murray had some Head racquet bigger than a snow shoe!
i know fed uses the retail k90 and i want to believe everything nate is saying, but i found it funny/interesting how he said murray is using the radical matter of factly when in fact it is a pj of the prestige pro...
Well he looks at spencer, and he shakes his head.
Made me laugh.
Its all marketing.
you're being sarcastic right?
