    I typed in tenniswarehouse.com in the address bar and I know they usually change the items in the front than I saw these. I was surprised to see them and I thought they looked awesome!! The price isn't that bad either, compared to the ProPulse. I wonder how these shoes will be on the courts, I might pick up a pair when I need new tennis shoes.

    That sounds great and it also comes with a 6-month warranty.

    What are your thoughts?

    Not really the same shoe, more of an update. Not only does this shoe carry the 6-month warranty, but its substantially more comfortable. Plus new cosmetics.

    I confirm, the shoe is much more comfortable than the previous version! It's not a "sleeper" though, as it is a performance shoe overall. It's really a great shoe now. I bought 2 pairs and they are doing great!

    Yes, they are "all court" even though they are optimized for hard courts.

    I just got these shoes today.

    I was wondering if anyone has tried to send them in for the warranty yet? Is Babolat good about honoring it?

    i had these shoes and returned them a couple of months ago, but I took them back to TW. i'm about 3 hours from SLO. where did you buy the shoes from? if you said TW, you shouldn't have a prob returning them when you need to

    Are you saying that TW gave you another pair on the spot? Or did TW just send it into Babolat for you?

    I bought it from another retailer in the "middle western" part of the US. They also said I could return to them and they would send it to Babolat. And they said it would take 2 months for the whole process. Ouch! Must be sending them to France.

    TW gave me a new pair on the spot. I've returned three or four pairs of shoes to TW and they have always replaced them right on the spot, provided they were worn enough. i hope TW doesn't mind me saying this, but I believe they aren't as picky as the shoe companies may be. hmm, yeah maybe MW sports doesn't replace them on the spot. Well the lesson today, always buy from TW!! :) what size do you wear?

    I am a 9.5. I got the Whites, they look and feel niiiiiice. Maybe I'll buy another pair from TW and rotate it in while the other one is shipped off.

    Newport Beach is in Orange County, SoCal, which should be about a 3 hour drive to SLO = too far. I would just send it in when I need to. Thanks for the info!
