Will be receaving my new Aerogel 100 in the next few days.Just curious if any Dunlop players out there have one and what they can tell me about them.I figure I have had the 200 g ,200 m-fil,200 Aerogel I wanted to try the 100 which I thought was only in Asia but know is in the states.I could not get a Demo but I picked one of the last available in my grip size 4 1/4 at a really good price.Could use some info on the pros and cons of this cool stick.

Thanks !

If you do a search here, you'll find lots of threads and posts on the AG100 from the past 1.5 years.

It was mainly available in Europe until now.

Here's my review from last year: http://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/showthread.php?t=157349

I could also use info on string set ups and tensions from those who play with this racquet.I looked for threads but as ussuall all I seem to get is people arguing and no real review on the Racquet.

You're welcome. Even though it was not sold here in the U.S., lots of people here still had them. There are quite a few people here on this board that have played with it.

Been using it for 18 months (by far the longest i've stayed with a racket in ages!) and I am still loving it!! Brilliant access to spin and control, I use mine stock as I love mids but usually struggle with their higher weights, most people who use it on here add lead to the hoop. The low weight, slim beam, and small head make this racket ultra maneuverable!

Hope you enjoy this special racket!

Well TW rules say that you should not discuss competitors, and i have found it on us sites for sale already, in the uk its available from one of the big online retailers and has been for a while.

That online retailer is having problems because of the demand they took out the demo.Already sold out in a few grip sizes

I'm actually demoing Aergoel 100 right now. It's good racquet but I would definitely add some weight to it. It feels too unstable right out of the box. I'm actually comparing it to the Babolat Pure Storm Tour (the other racquet that I'm demoing) and I find that Aerogel is great kick-serves, good access to spin with the open string pattern, definitely good control but the sweet spot is way too small for me. Plus it has that "tingy" sound to it but I'm sure if you add some lead at 9 and 3, it will take care of itself.

All said and done, it'll probably be a good racquet once you add some weight but I found the sweetspot to be too small for my liking. Surprisingly, the Babolat has great feel and control to it and I never thought that Babolat could make a control racquet!

A fellow here in Bangkok has one and I hit with it. It is very solid and I liked it even at the net with volleys. I would buy one but I do not like 90 headsizes.
My main frame is nCode6195 .... love it
