    Just ordered 3 packs of these VS Gut 16 and noticed the packaging has changed... Now the TW website has the 16 packaging pictured just like the old one.. not updating it to the one that looks like the 17 and the 15L


    The packaging I got on my 16 VS Gut -

    Except 130 and 16 replacing the 125 and 17

    TW's listing of the 16 VS Gut -

    Don't worry. Babolat changes its packaging regularly and you got the newest.

    You would notice that even with the older packaging, Babolat has changed the player's picture from time to time. (Some have Roddick, some have Roddick & Nadal, some have Nadal)

    You only get the genuine stuff from TW.

    This year babolat is changing all their packaging on their strings. They're moving away from the crappy plastic cases to paper like wilson, prince and everyone else.

    Also this year is their 185 year anniversary so babolat is letting everyone know. From string packaging to an anniversary edition Pure Drive. ( I held it and it looks and feels better than the blue pure drive gt)

    Ahhhh...now I see how they justified the price increase! They went from expensive plastic packaging to less expensive paper! ;)
