While watching an babolat advertisement on Tennis Channel I couldn't help but notice a yellow and black racket being used by players in the video... judging from the cosmetics this could potentially be the new Aero Pro model for next year?
what do you guys think?

Could well be it, looks like it has the new 'side' cortex which is meant to be introduced

I don't think so after talking to Babolat reps they told me that all racquets will have white double lines.

My guess would be a new version in the Babolat Drive Z series. Possibly an Aero iteration.

Its not an Aero Pro, you can see the black rubber shock absorber thing-ama-jigs on the throat. Like SF said, most likely a new Drive Z.

Looks like a racquet you'd find at Walmart.

Same thought here. Due to the heptagonal shapes in the pj.

Looks like a Babolat frame that s p o r t s a u t h o r i t i e s would sell if babolat ever sold to the big box stores.

Its too soon. Just starting 2012. New model I suppose will be different in termss of cosmetics, should be more like the new Pure Drive but in the black-yellow colors. I wouldnt be surprised if they went back to the original paint job but with a more modern look.

I'd personally like to see them go with more black. Or red, perhaps, like the French Open version from last year.

Doubtful. Babolat tends to stick to specific color combinations in their different series: Pure Drive- Blue, Pure Storm- Red & Aero series- Black, yellow, white.

I'd like to see the new Aero Pro pj all matte black with iradescent yellow for stripes/lettering and whatnot (To look somewhat like the Pure Drive)
