Should I get the 2010 Aeropro or keep looking?

Rookie
I have been playing for years with the Babolat AeroPro. My current racquet is a Babolat AeroPro GT plus from 2010. However, my backup or second racquet is an even older AeroPro (not + which means it is shorter). With the price drop of the 2010 Aeropro GT Plus at Tennis Warehouse, I was thinking on getting one, so I will play with two identical racquets. Seems like a good opportunity to get a good second racquet without braking the bank. Should I get this racquet, or probably buy the 2013 model? Is there a huge difference between the 2010 and 2013 models? or maybe I should change change altogether to a new model or brand? Overall I am very happy with the Aeropro GT Plus, although I know is a little stiff and sporadicly I have little pain on my elbow that goes away. I haven't tried new racquets in a while. What do you think guys?

The 2010 model has better plow IMHO. I demo'd the 2013 model several times and I just couldn't make it work. I recommend a demo if you can, though - good luck!

IMHO, just get a second or third back up 2010 APD GT+ at the sale price.
