Is it always the same cosmetics since the first introduction of the racquet, or did it slightly change recently, with some metallic redon it? If it changed, can you describe?

The cosmetics on this racket have changed since its conception. The old one has the old style babolat insignia (the white circle with two white lines through it) just above the handle on the front and back of the frame, and at the base of the head just above the "bottom" grommets (the top of the throat), babolat is written in white in the old font.

The new cosmetics show the new insginia which is a predominately red circle with some white, and at the throat, babolat is wirtten in the newer block type font and followed by the insignia. Furthermore, Babloat is written in the new font in large letters on the throat of the racket. This is a characteristic shared by the whole of the latest range. Another difference is the case, which is now black with white stripes, rather than the previous blue.

In fact, the pictures shown on the TW shop site are the old cosmetics.

This link shows a store with the new cosmetics.

Essentially, the change is to incorporate the new logos and fonts for branding purposes, and this is the easiest way to tell the new from the old. I think there are other slight cosmetic differences to the paint work of the head, in particular the red paint, but I believe there is no structural change.
