    Terrible. Full bars look better.

    It's kind of funny that their are differences in the paint job for fed's racquets compared to retail.

    There are bigger logo fish to fry out there --- like Head and Volkl both shoving ski logos down the throats of their tennis customers.

    I don't like it the new logo. I found the old logo much better.

    Well they are ski companies first!

    Btw the original HEAD logo was a simple dot . On the tip of their first skis back in the 50s....they added the stylized ski tip as the DOT just too plain.

    Love the new logo.....the Modern B harkens back to the past with the original stylized Babolat Maillot Wit logo from years back.

    I think the logo is all right but on the strings it looks terrible. The two-stripe stencil was simple and excellent. Now you can barely see it.

    Yes, this was my point as well. The logo itself is well designed, but it just doesn't work as a stencil in my opinion.

    not a fan. At least not on the strings. The original was the best of all of them imo. I used to love seeing babolat stencils with the wilson above it in red like on sampras and old fed. Does anyone dual stencil anymore?

    The new Babolat logo reminds me of the old Emrik logo (Australian brand; used by Evonne Goolagong, Kim Warwick and Wally Masur). Not a great association as Emrik was pretty much a byword for second-rate racquets.
