I was browsing though their website and found the aero strike.
Has anyone gotten the chance to play with this? it is also very light when compaired to the other aero rackets.

eh, don t think it is a racquet i will like, I love the o3 white and cant wait for tennis warehouse to get some in stock.

the new flexpoint prestige is a darn good racquet also. I have demoed it and I must say it is very stable, solid and have great power. I have a collection of all the prestiges and I cant wait for TW to carry this great frame.

Fellow board member Ti Radical and I took this one out for a test drive this morning. It certainly has a bit of grunt to it and spin was effortless, even for me with my continental grip. 'TiRadical' uses more of a western grip than I do and he was ripping the ball pretty easily.

I haven't hit with any of the other Aero frames so I can't compare. I personally didn't care for this one that much - it felt a little 'hollow' and insubstantial to me. I think though that these aero type frames are designed to facilitate a more modern open stanced style of hitting. If you like to hit with a lot of spin and net clearance I can see this one helping you out a lot. It would really become tiring having to play fast balls bouncing at shoulder height for a whole match.

It's not really new...I believe it's already been out for more than 6 months here in Canada...

Hey there,
Did you get an Aero Strike?
I picked one up out of Canada and have it strug at 55lbs with 15L string. I started out at 67lbs on it with 17L string, just didnt have enough feeling to it. But once I dropped the weight to the bottom it plays great.
I am a serve and volley player, mostly doubles.
I like the raquet a lot. Only thing I dont is that it doesnt have that much touch on it.
I can easily serve over 110mph with it though.
I need to get another one, have you found a good price on it? $178 US is what I paid for it at the time.
-Endo.
