    Watching WTA Stuttgart today, Agnieszka Radwanska seems to be playing with one of the new-look Babolat Pure Drives. The only thing was that it had a white bumper.

    Anyone know if she's switched racquets, or is it a paint job?

    Small thing, but the new vibration dampner thingy was white rather than red on a Pure Drive and black on a Pure Drive Roddick...

    I propose there will be a new signature Pure Drive Radwanska!! That should sell like hotcakes in the US...

    Ah, I see... It looks like Babolat are replacing the Drive Z model with the Pure Drive Lite:

    They won't replace the Drive Z lite...I would be curious to check if they feel really different.
    Both 275g and 72 RA / 32,5cm balance for the PDL
