    I'm considering the AG4D100 as my next stick to feed my racquaholism. I currently use a Pres Mid, Redondo, and KPS88, with the Pres fast becoming my favorite. Can anyone give any input/comparisons between the Dunlop stick and any or all of my current weapons? Thanks...

    find a frame you like and stick to it. dont play with so many different rackets. looks to me like you need to buy a few more prestiges and play with that.

    I like playing with many different sticks myself.
    One season with one, next season with another.
    It's like a sport on its own.

    If I played competively (which I would like to do, but can't find any leagues in my area), I would pick a stick and stay with it, but I don't, so it's like having a free pass to go out with as many different girls as I like.

    i bring to the courts and switch between the MG Prestige Pro and 4D100 frequently these days. think it helps the technique or something. also nice to have options.

    Yes. I like to choose a stick according to whatever whim for the day, and enjoy making the subtle adaptations for it and feeling the different characteristics. So do you have any insights on the 4D100? Thanks.

    not sure what you are asking. there's a dunlop 100 thread that might be beneficial to you.

    I've read some of that thread and there is a ton of opinion on the 100 but a lot of it is on the old 100 not the 4D, and I was looking more for direct comparisons from folks who are familiar with any of the sticks I currently use...

    the 4D100 is lower powered than the MG PP. one needs to swing out to get good results or expect short balls that the opponent will take delight in putting away.

    would you say its much more lower powered than the MG PP? My KBT's are more low powered than the prestiges but i can generate more racket head speed so i produce more spin and depth.

    the 90" kind of scares me, im still debating whether to pick up a 4d100 or not

    not to conflict on one's defn of "much more" so if u check the 100 thread, a number of users add lead to various locations on the hoop of the 4D100 (myself included). don't be afraid of 90...it's only slightly smaller than the MG PP which i think is closer to 94 or so.

    Thanks badcall. It sounds as though the 4D100 might fill a hole between my Prestige and my Redondo, which is really soft and waaaaay under powered. I guess maybe I'll post on the AG100 thread for some more direct comparisons...

    My guess would be that these would play very similar to the Prestige Mid but with more powerful due to the more open 16x19 pattern
    the 3sq inch wont make a difference haha,
