Is this the APD GT???....Pretty sure Nadal will just be switching to the pj.
Yeah, without a doubt. His APD Cortex didn't have a real cortex, he'll still be using his original APD's.

do we no what new and "better" technology will be in it?
"GT" technology, which stands for Graphite Tungsten. Who knows what improvement that will make, but it will probably be marketed as "95% more FEEL, 82% more CONTROL, and thus, 2000% MORE TALENT."

At best, its going to be slight slightly stiffer/flexier.

pics have been on here for weeks, surprised people havent seen it yet. i think it looks quite good to be honest, would still pay more to be able to get hold of 4 more of the original ones, wish i didnt smash it now!

He may switch frames when he feels just how superior and comfortable the GT technology is... compared to the last generation.

I'm really looking forward to trying the frame.

A few people here have countless racquets, but most people tend to demo loads and just buy the ones they like, I have a 6 of my main racquet, and a couple of other ones I enjoy using, same with most other people here really.

I really want to try this puppy out, comes out before AO?
I've heard several times in the racket section that it will drop just before the FO 2010. This makes sense, as the APDC dropped right before the '07 FO. Nadal will be debuting it, of course.

My advice is this. If you are going to DEMO lots of rackets, only do it in Same LENGTH rackets. I found out that if you keep going back and forth from 27 inch to 27.5 inches, it will completely mess up your SERVE. I know the length change isn't much but it messes with your toss point or something. :-?

I cant imagine ever wanting to try a 27.5 racquet. I've been playing with 27's since I was like, 11 or so. Dont fix what isn't broken!

wow i can't imagine Rafa using this complex PJ. the apdc is so simple looking, i love it. I'll probably buy one of these to see if it's any different from my cortex.

No updates on bags yet? Mine is about 2 years old now and it's starting to break mainly at the zippers so I want to see how the new ones are gonna look...

Love the new look. GT technology is a massive improvement for Babolat frames so this should only make a well liked frame even more popular. I'm ready to order 2 with the new black Babolat string. Just waiting for the pre order option to pop up whenever it does.

OK. What exactly are the "supposed" improvements of GT technology?

I wonder what the guys behind babolat will come up with...

Where did you get these pics from btw? Babolast, no?

Honestly, if you can, I'd at least demo a 27.5 racquet, you never know, you may love the added leverage you get on your shots. I've used a couple extended racquets, (never over 27.5, except for a brief VERY BRIEF flirtation with the awful POG LB, I destroyed it after 3 practice sessions), I really liked the extra capability to find advanced angles when hitting big from the backcourt, I could rip passing shots at such extreme angles, My service motion had to be slightly adjusted but I was rewarded with increased pace. \

Don't knock something before you've at least trying it once,borrow someones PDGT+ or APD+ (or anything similar to your current racquet) and you may fall in love, I sure love them.

Maybe your form HAS been broken all these years and an extended length racquet is just what you need to be prpperly fixed

I am typically one to laugh at some of the marketing that goes on with tennis racquets but I think the feel and solidity of the GT series has been undeniable. They somehow were able to finally get some feel and solid feel to the imo hollow tinny feeling of the older PD's.
