Babolat Pure Aero question

So I recently visited Europe and I got quite confused at the pricing of the Pure Aero rackets here. I found that the Pure Aero RG2017 racket was 120 Euros, while the normal Pure Aero (green) went for 200 Euros! Correct me if I'm wrong but aren't they essentially the same rackets, but with a different color scheme? Why the huge difference in price? Is it because Nadal wasn't using the RG2017 one? I'm just really looking to use the same racket and don't care much for the color scheme so I'd happily buy the RG2017 one if they turned out to be the same rackets.

Link to both rackets:

its the same racquet.
do you know why there's such a huge difference in price though? My theory is because Nadal didn't use the racket or because there's the 2018 La Decima RG one. All these different color schemes for Aero are confusing lol

babolat has a minimum advertised price that they allow authorized retailers to sell their racquets at. the roland garros models are limited edition paint and the MAP gets dropped faster on those because they arent regular production items. check to make sure it isnt a pure aero lite, bc i believe they have done a limited run or two of those as well.

Makes sense, and yes I've checked a couple dozen times already to compare. Shame the store doesn't have the original green one so it makes it harder to compare. Guess if it all checks out I'm off to buy a new racket lol. Shame that the og green ones look better imo though. Nothing beats the sexy Red Aero Pro Drive imo though lol. Hope he gets something like a blue racket soon though.

Anyways thanks a lot!
