Re: New Racket Recommendation - Head Microgel Radical, Dunlop AG 4D 300, etc
Thanks Ace and Jazar for the responses.
Hmm, I was under the impression that although the Dunlop 500 Tour is probably a bit more powerful racquet (being a 'tweener), it still maintains a pretty good control. Am I wrong in thinking that?
About being a baseliner and flatter hitter, I thought this would be a good racquet as I want to be able to impart more spin when I feel like it (i.e, I don't hit flat all the time because I choose to. I used to be able to hit with more spin when I was a beginner with a wilson profile. only after using the prince equipe, I realized that my groundstrokes became more flat). Also, whenever I read about 500 Tour, people categorize it in the Pure Drive category. Hence, being a baseliner...
From what you guys mentioned, is the Dunlop really that jarring to the arm? Some people mentioned in this forum that the new Aerogel 4D actually plays softer than what its stiffness rating indicates?
If I sound like I'm really trying to like the Dunlop, it's because I was just making up my mind on that one yesterday and was about to go out and get one. Now, I'm not as sure. I do know that I like the cosmetics better ;P ). Plus, I was thinking that since I've been using an OS for a while, I'd probably wanna try a midplus.
I do realize that the best thing is to demo each racquet myself. However, since I'm currently living in Indonesia, such a thing is not an option =(
