So I guess this is official for TW?

Anyways cool, i'll really be looking for it but, the price is over my budget :(.

I hope the M-Fil 300 price drops more when these release I am really interested in getting another M-Fil 300 and it would be great if they drop.

You said that the grip for the 2 hundred is blue/white and the grip for the 300 is red/white and the 500 is yellow/white. So does this mean they will have the candy cane grip just like the the M-Fil series racquets?

Unless it's different in the US than abroad, the grip on all the new Aerogels is white/white. :)

Apparently there is a aerogel 100 with a 90 sq.in. head and open string pattern with very nice specs.

Dunlop seems to try bringing the old MW 90 model with a new outfit....you heard it right...bring sexy back

Does it say which (or both) pattern 300 the US gets? 16x18 or 16x19?

Sounds like the 16x19...this German Dunlop site shows the 16x19 as 330mm/4pts head light (you have it as even balance), other specs match to above.

The 16x18 shows even more head light (320mm/7pts), 97 head, 63 stiffness, nothing mathes up but the weight...

Seems like the brochure may be incorrect, and the 300 is really 4pts head light like the current version. Any thoughts?

Hi Folks,

I saw the new Aerogel frames in November at a local Challenger tournament. I kind of ignored them since they looked like cheap recreational racquets and headed to the shelf with all the m-fil racquets. Only after I had a chat with the Dunlop rep I realised that these are the new frames that will be released soon.

330 = 4 pts head light, not even.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but that's what I understand...matches their current racquets (M-Fil 300 is 4pts head light) so that makes sense...

That's weird. I was just around the Aerogel series today and the specs were different than what you have posted here.

Warning Warning, please do not try the dunlop Aerogel 500, it is the stinkiest racket ever made, i tried it today and it hit like it was made of aluminum. No stability wild power no control, Really bad bad bad.

I can tell you the specs of my Aerogel 300 don't match up to above:

aerogel 3hunderd
head size 98 - same
beam 21 mm - same
strung 10.75 - 10.95 (Manuf. variance or change in spec? No way to know yet.)
stiffness 64 - presumably the same
balance even - 4pts head light *
color red/white grip - this was already clarified, but the racquet PJ includes red, white, black, light blue, and silver. :)
length 27 - same

* Grass Hopper had already corrected the balance info...330, which = 4pts head light, though he mistakenly referred to it as even balance.

What other racquet specs did you see that didn't match up?

Only after I had a chat with the Dunlop rep I realised that these are the new frames that will be released soon.

Was checking on some old threads and noticed this post. Well, years later I ended up using these "cheap recreational looking racquets", and I actually like the looks of them (AG 200 Tour)!

:rolleyes:
