A good amount of development went into the new version.

If using the same mold is a problem, then you should be looking at every single manufacturer. Wilson and it's 6.1 models, Head Prestiges and Radicals. Complete frame redesigns don't (and shouldn't, IMO) happen every product cycle. There needs to be some consistency for the consumer.

Finally, in addition to the new ESP frames, there are 3 Pro frames coming out as well. That's 4 new Premier frames, 3 new Warriors (Pro, and 2 ESPs), and 4 new Tours (ESP and Pro versions in 100 and 98 headsizes). That's 11 new models, plus updated Classics.
Please elaborate!
