View Full Version : Buttcap three letter code for Babolats

01-10-2008, 12:47 PM
Does anyone know what the three letter code signifies on Babolat rackets (or any rackets). The first letter seems to be the same for each Bab. model, the 2nd letter seems to vary a lot, and the third letter only varies between W X or Y.

I have a PC MP 100" and I have found out that the MAY racket plays different from my other rackets that are MLX, MFW, and MCX. Also I found another MAY racket recently and it plays exactly the same as my other MAY racket?? So what do these letter mean???

Thanks again!

Because I know that it has some sort of significance. Wilson has it sorted by date 2nd letter is month and 3rd letter is year. Maybe the third letter for babolat is year also cuz maybe it was only made for three years. Another thing to think about is maybe after a year or so the original mold gets old and used up and then they have to cast a new mold. I dont really know these are all assumptions. any more ideas guys thanks!!!
