    Hi guys. I have a dilemma. I recently demoed a Dunlop AG 4D 300 (hitting with it for first time tonight, and I currently have a AeroPro Drive Cortex. I am looking for slightly more control and more power, especially on the serve. I can generate medium power and lots of topspin.

    I like to think of myself as a 4.5 ntrp player who uses placement, spin, and consistency to win.

    I know I should try the Dunlop first, but all I want is a little hint. Thanks! :)

    By the way, I play with a semi western forehand and two handed forehand. My first serve is a flat with a bit slice, and my second serve is a kick. My weapon is definitely forehand and I'm trying to develop a low, skidding backhand slice. I am a great defensive player and will go on offense given the change. I mostly play a baseline game; however, I'm working on my volleys. :)

    the 300 definitely won't give you more power than the Babolat. not even close.

    Try the non-tour for what you specifically want - more power

    The 300 non tour model is not more powerful than the Aeropro Drive.
    Not many racquets are.

    Man, I just came back from hitting. Wow the Dunlop Aerogel 4d 300 was strung with full bed of Babolat Pro Hurricane! Wow this string was horrible. I hated the muted feeling, and the racket provided no spin. Fishcher M Pro Number One 98 (also a demo) is 2x better. It has more feel, spin, power, control, everything. Probally going to get this one. =] It was strung with NXT 16:)

    APDC is a toy, get a racquet that actually looks like it was meant for tennis.
