    [K] Brave is certainly not as head heavy as the [K] Power or ArcSaber 10.

    If you want to take the balance point into consideration, I think [K] Brave is even balanced. The ArcSaber 10 and [K] Power are considered head heavy (although the spec on the ArcSaber 10 says it's even balanced).

    But to me, it is head light. I feel my ArcSaber 10 is even balanced while [K] Power is head heavy.

    guys....the wilson website does not mention the (K) Lite racquet in their (K) factor series......does it mean they will stop producing them.....I personally like (K) Lite since I find it good for doubles play....

    Jonas uses the Vertex

    Paaske, I think, uses AT900P, but not sure...

    From another thread, I believe Paaske was using Arc 8DX.

    If you look close (in the AE) it does look like a AT900P

    As far as I've seen it, it's more head-heavy than K-Brave when looking at BP.

    You are correct. The BP of the Vertex BLX is 290

    I have K-Lite and K-Brave. Both plays well and good in control with mid range power. However, K-Brave is a little bit more demanding, need a strong arm to max it capability and good timing to hit the sweet spot to get the real power.

    I did a quick test on the new BLX Vertex. I'm quite surprise when I swing the racket. I did not feel the additional weight and did not have any difficulties in adjusting to the new BP. It feels good, light, easy to manouver and powerfull. However, I did not have the chance to hit it on a birdie. First impression is that it is a good racket and much more superior than K-Brave. This will be my next racket. :cool:
