    It says on the video 6th of Dec 2007. Just look at the title of it and you can pretty much make it out.

    I have a feeling Nadal has been playing with Kirschbaum because his yellow strings look a lot shinier than PHTs and the red strings are Pro LIne

    I'll soon post a review of these red strings. They look a bit stiff by the way.

    I would say it's a new Babolat string. I'd want to try it :D

    I'd like to say they're the MSV Focus Hex or Co. Focus just because everyone else is listing all the red strings out on the market. haha

    The new Babolat strings I have are gauge 17 (1.25 mm). Really stiff. Less red than the TF RedCode.

    They are designed to compete with Luxilon.

    @Fedace : Rafa was trying these strings, no Kirschbaum. I don't know where you saw that he wanted more power from the strings.

    Do you know what it's gonna be called yet by babolat ?

    I talked to the babolat rep recently and he said that babolat are releasing new strings soon with red colour but they haven't thought of the name yet lol

    That would be the best bet besides a new bab string, but I would think he would pick black. The Hex is super low power and holds tension better than anything else.

    But Rafa has been known to hate the 17 gauge stuff, he said it himself. He uses 15L cause he states it gives him more control.. and what is this NEW red stuff from Babolat. is it in the website ?

    No sorry. I guess this summer?

    I didn't say that Rafa was using that gauge. I said that the samples that I am testing are 17 gauge.

    The probably the most important criteria this string will be judged is based on its playing characteristics to the Pro Hurr Tour or Pro Hurr. Since so many people use the PHT and PH. I just want a Poly that last little longer than PHT and gives just as much spin and little more power. Control has never been the issue with PHT as long as it is not dead.
