    Posted this pic on his Facebook account earlier today. Notice the racquet still inside the bag, different paint job isn't it? Probably 2013 APD?

    Yeah, after looking closely I noticed. Fail by my part. The yellow outer part of that side of the frame made me think it was different. I've never used an APD so didn't know it was Yellow outside, White Inside. My bad!

    The catch is that it still doesn't have the white overgrip on and the bandana package is covering the throat area, so it really gives a wrong impression.

    I wanna put stars on my bag too. And all the years I went to watch a slam. I can be the GOAT-spectator...

    When does Babolat update? I know the Pure drives are like every 3 years or so but what about the others?

    About once every 4 years, I guess.

    My local Babolat rep said to expect a new Aero line around Aussie Open time next year.

    If there's going to be an update it may be the paint job similar to the pure drive revamp with the exception the blue being replaced by the yellow.

    i saw and held the new aero pro drive. it has the new updated cortex like the pure drive and has a new paint job that boasts much more black with slight white and yellow accents. looks great!
