    I hope they add some heft to that frame to bring it up to at least 11.5oz. The Storm was supposed to be the successor to the PC MP wasn't it?

    I saw one of those cortex PD's in the pro shop last week. They remind me of the Wilson Triad crap.

    I've actually switched racquets (having been a long time PD user) after the cortex was introduced with the PD. The racquet doesn't feel the same (worse) to me as the original PD.

  11. I talked to my local tennis shop about this since I want to stick with the current pure storm (I see no reason to add cortex) but they hadn't heard anything at all.

    I also asked the owner of my local shop... He has not heard anything and he talks to a Babolat rep every couple days. He said he will ask him about it, I'll let you guys know what he says...

    can someone tell me what is the distinct difference between pure drive and say pure storm .. i know pure drive is a little heavier ... and the racquet head size is only marginal larger .. but the specs are relatively the similar . i dont see what the difference will be? any thoughts

    may be it is becos there are so many racquets in the market.that are so simialr .(even within the same manufacuturer) so i cant really tell what will be the definitive difference

    Yeah, that cortex thing looks really cheap and dodgy.

    jay4cee,

    The big difference in specs is the shape and stiffness. They play fairly different.. Do a search, there may be a million threads on the Pure Storm VS other Babolats. We Pure Storm users seem to be some of the most loyal.

    Well it definitely feels better than the old Pd. I never would have guessed how stiff the PD was if I had just played with this racquet. It's great.

    Interesting to look back at an old thread like this and see how much bogus "information" about new products people pass along.

    The cortex technology is a big FAKE¡¡¡¡¡

    I have two PD`s one with, and other without and i can confirm... It`s a FAKE.

    Cortex makes a difference? Has anyone tried contacting Babolat? That's what I did when there were rumors of an updated AeroPro line.
