    It's the old version.

    The new version came in 2008.

    The normal Xcel plays nothing like the new Xcel Power.

    Xcel Power should rightfully be called Xcel Ultimate, while the normal Xcel (used to be called Premium) should be called Xcel Soft.

    Xcel Power came in 2008 - so the 2007 version will not feel like the new one, it will be like the new normal Xcel, soft, mushy and arm friendly - but not crisp feeling like the new Xcel Power is :D

    But what if the store has both xcel premium and xcel power but has 07 for both. maybe just a typo?

    IN that case they have some early prototype strings, because the Xcel Power wasn't released until 2008 :)

    Yeahh, there have only been one version of Babolat Xcel Power, Xcel Power was released in '08 - why change on Prime Multi perfection :D

    Xcel Power is NOTHING like Babolat VS TEAM 17/VS TOUCH 16 NATTY GUT, but It's still one of the best strings in the world if you want a 'gut like' arm friendly, crisp, responsive and pretty powerful string with very good tension and elasticity maintenance :D
