    Has anyone seen the new Babolat Cortex racquets? The piece of plastic near the top of the handle looks so cheap and nasty, is that the so-called cortex? It's really bad workmanship, others with me at the time thought it was a joke, or that you pull it off. But apparently it stays there?

    Don't tell fibs, it's not a decal, it's a piece of solid plastic that goes around the shaft of the racquet.

    do you have a cortex racquet? i do, and it appears a decal to me, out of the 2 racquets that i have they spaced differently, its just a thick plastic label....

    it IS a decal, the blue thing dosent do anything, the actual cortex is inside the racquet.

    I would imagine its just decal, from what I've seen of them. Don't like the look of it at all though- wouldn't buy one.

    As soon as I think I am going to get a new PD all of these threads start popping up about the paint and the cortex. Way to ruin a mans dreams.

    It is NOT a decal. :roll:

    I have the Roddick PD, and while I agree that the blue piece of plastic above the handle is not needed and is used to advertise the "Cortex" system, it doesn't look "dodgy" to me.

    However, I did receive a fake Roddick PD through e bay and the Cortex as well as the paint job didn't look very good.

    Actually the 2004+ pj pure drives are way better looking than the new cortex pj.
