    I've used my coach's k90 and it felt really nice. I really enjoyed playing it, but then it was my coach's so I obviously can't keep it. Right now, K90s are like 100 bucks flat or less at my local shop. When I get better, I probably would want the K90 to be my racket. Recently, I read on TT that with the BLX's the 6.1 tour line is losing its tradition by not braiding kevlar into the matrix? Thats what I read, but who knows.

    I don't think I deserve another racket just yet because I just got 2 new ones a couple of weeks ago haha.

    they are discontinued and the shop is probably trying to clear stock at that price... if you want something, get it, especially in this case where it won't be available in a few months.

    You may not be able to find the same kind in the future, and the price is good, get some spare so you won't regret, otherwise, you might have to pay more $$$ but to choose a substitute.

    What should I say to my parents? I barely got 2 new rackets that I'm using like a month ago. I won't be using the K90s. Just want to collect them right now and maybe use them later. Most likely i will use them later on when I improve and get more fit

    Hiding is not an issue haha. The problem is getting to the 14 mile away shop without them knowing. I'm not familiar with bus lines

    Your side of the court.
    If you really want them i suggest you read up on some bus schedules haha. You could always sell the racquets you just bought and use that money to buy the K90's!

    That is exactly what I did!! I already had one K90 which I used here and there. Recently I bought one of the few last ones from the TW and this one is still with the wrapping around it and no string job!! Maybe I will keep it as an antique frame and sell it way later!! :)

    Ironically, I recently figured out that I just can't use that frame due to shoulder problems... :(
