I've noticed that several retired tour players use Dunlop rackets, specifically the Aerogel 300. Since I'm rapidly approaching senior status, do they know something about the AG300 I don't? I currently use a Tecnifibre TF-335 and love it but its heavy.

You should play with whatever feels best to you, not whatever other people use. Besides, if you can handle the weight of the 335, it's a really solid frame. If you are feeling that it's a tad heavy, you might want to try the 320 out or maybe a lighter technifibre.

Could be.

I had a Pro Staff 6.0 85 for over 15 years and loved it. But when I seriously got back into tennis last summer, I found it too heavy. The way I hit, it wore out my arm in 30 minutes.

Time to start looking and move on. I did.

Hey, you can't judge anything about that without seeing him play and seeing how he has done with that frame. BTW, if a heavy frame wears you out quickly, you might be trying to arm the ball rather than using the kinetic chain.
