nope, Nadal, Tsonga and Roddick have been using it all in different gauges.

It looks like the new stuff has an official name!

thanks jace!

I think Nadal does too. He was talking about his switch the other evening (here in USA) after his match. He claims this new string even gives him more topspin.

Yeah and during an interview he said that cortex aero pro is gives him great shots when we all know he is using a PJ. I believe the strings that he is using are the same Duralast 15 guage just died black instead of the clear yellow.

Maybe. I don't think it would be that big of a deal if he just didn't truly like the new strings.

Maybe Nadal is, but Roddick and Tsonga are using the legit string. Roddick usually rolls with whatever Babolat is testing, like at the Wimbledon 08' when he was using Babolat Revenge. And Tsonga probably switched upon testing out his AeroPro in the off season. Personally, I think Nadal is using it. He seems to have a ton of power that he never had before. I think he might have made the switch to accomidate for his knee, because lately he's been shortening points.

Yes the racquet is a PJ. And the strings are custom duralast dyed black. Nothing has changed. It's clever marketing by Babolat. Sucker bait..

well...there is no question Babolat has good marketing!
I believe all 3 are using RPM Blast...as yet no proof!
