I am thinking of buying this racquet. Is there a cortex and non cortex model ?
Is there any difference ?

I found a tennis club that has one for me to demo, but the it does not say cortex. Was wondering if there are 2 different models.

i feel the cortex is heavier than another.

many differences. One being that the cortex model has cortex, and the other does not. :)

In all seriousness, if it is mostly black, non cortex, but if it is mostly yellow, cortex

According to Babolat, the cortex is suppose to filter out bad vibrations giving you better feel of the ball

I'm not a fan of it, it feels too dampened.
even nadal does use it

Cortex is better. More manuverable.

It's the same exact racquet as the original, but the only difference is in the throat with the cortex thing. The specs are identical. There is only one difference. How that translates to being "more maneuverable" is completely beyond me.

I found both to be pretty much the exact same. The original wins with looks :D

non cortex, it felt more solid to me.
