I have been using the aerogel 300 for 2 years and am considering switching to the head youtek radical mp or dunlop aerogel 4D 300. I have 4.5-5.0 strokes but due to knee surgeries and age, approaching 50, I am probably playing closer to the 4.0 level. I have been an aggressive, consistent baseliner but due to my knee issues am beginning to play more doubles.

Does anyone have experience hitting with all of these frames and can give me their impressions.

Thanks!

I've hit with the ag300 and the youtek radical. Personally I preferred the radical over the 300 because it feels more solid and has a soft plush feel to it. however, if you liked the 300 you might like the 4d 300 tour better. it has received a lot of praise here on the forums. personally I'm not a big fan of the dunlop feel though.

definitely give both a demo and see which one you like better.

I like Dunlop's grip shape and general "feel", but never have gotten along that great with the 300. The slightly heavier aerogel 300 16x18 was better, but still seemed to hit a light and spinny ball to me. It was only a problem playing against bigger hitters though. I've hit with a liquidmetal radical and thought it hit a "heavier" ball, for what it's worth. I just don't like Head's grip shape. The 300 tour has intrigued me too, and I actually started a thread a few days ago. There wasn't really anything worth noting except it was agreed that Head users like Head grips, and non-Head users don't like Head grips; pretty standard stuff that doesn't really compare the racquets' playing characteristics at all... Hopefully someone that's played both will chime in here and help us both out.
