    I'm testing the new APD 2013 but it felt to head heavy and a bit stiff. I would love to add some silicone to the handle and see how it plays, but some guy at the club told me that the new Babolats don't have the trap door, that I would only damage the new logo trying to get it out. The only way would be removing the whole buttcap?

    So is there one undivided chamber inside the trap door?

    Thanks for clearing that up guys. I just checked mine and yeah, single chamber instead of the classic bar in the middle. Makes it really easy to add silicone to the handle, but I wonder how does the "play and connect" thing is going to be installed with the buttcap staples on the way
