Re: Need Help With Buying A Racquet?

Wrong forum.

I play with the Aerogel 200 myself, allthough it's a bit light for my liking, it's a good overall racquet if you are a intermediate to advanced player. I think it's best suited for a single handed backhand. It lacks some plowthrough but makes up for it with good maneuverability, especially at the net.

Well I paid the equivalent of £200 for it when it first came out, but Norway is overpriced for tennis material.

Tell me a bit your playing style. I might recommend some strings for you as well. The strings that come with the racket is SHIT, you should definately re-string it right away. The vibration dampener comes with the racquet.

its only a good racket if you're a good player. to get the best out of it you need a long, fast swing and good timing. its definitely worth £50; it retailed for more than double that and is only cheap beause dunlop have just launched a replacement

Re: Need Help With Buying A Racquet?

Ok thx guys might order 1 then =). Should av enough to re string it then.

My playing style would be a fast swing, & 1 handed backhand .

Hmm... Replacement to it? Is it alot better than this 1?

Re: Need Help With Buying A Racquet?

the replacement is very similar. its 2.5g heavier and is supposed to be more stable. hitting with the two, you will only be able to tell the difference if you are very discerning
