    Now compare the last picture with the one of Severine Bremonds, it's definitely different.

    Robby Genepri I think has it

    Go to getty images and search for recent pics of him. The cosmetics on his racquet are different than anyone else using the Pure Storm.

    jesus christ people.

    have you ever on thought

    1. its a new paintjob
    2. a possible heavy tour version of the storm
    3. again a new paintjob to the newer babolat designs.

    THE CORTEX SYSTEM IS THE "V" SHAPED PLASTIC THING ABOVE THE GRIP.
    DO YOU SEE A "V" LIKE PLASTIC OBJECT!? NO.

    Someone has also suggested it has a new material in it that replaces the Zylon in the Pure Storm. That's the new technology selling point, for what it's worth, as there appears to be no Cortex. It's a pity if they don't have a red racquet and only two orange versions of the Storm.

    The material is called "Carbon Xtrem"
    There is a red racket: The Pure Storm Tour has the same red as the Pure Control.

    Many thanks, Jura. Obviously, Storm/Drive/Aero is a clearer marketing strategy than Control/Storm/Drive/Aero and Storm presumaby is a more attractive brand name as it emphasizes the idea of power that is synonymous with Babolat.
