    I have been reading alot of rave reviews between these two mids.

    It's Time to go head to head :
    I wanted to know if any of the faithfuls have tried playing the rival mid just to check it out.... if you do- what are your thoughts compared to your current mid (AG 100 vs BB11 or vice versa) and would you switch?

    Which of the two is better suited for baseliners, an all courter or S& V playing style?

    Nobody plays with mid sized racquets anymore. Time to move on.

    The BB11mid is the best racquet for my game out of dozens that I have tried. I haven't tried the Aerogel 100, and probably won't, since I am :D.
    Nobody

    i think the bb11 is better off the ground and the ag100 is better for s&v. i would not switch from my current mid.

    I played almost all the current mid models, Rodendo Mid, BB 11 mid, AG 100, head MG Prestige Mid, T/N/K 90, RDS 001 90, I still favour K90 and MG Mid. Maybe I used to SW of 330+, all others except my 2 favorites have to custom in various level to suit my taste.

    The Redendo and BB 11 mids have enough mass, but just too flexy. The AG 100 felt stiff (comfortable though) and swing too fast for me even I lifted the mass to near 368g with a few grams at the throat. Any further weight increment started to affect the maneuverability. Both AG 100 (after customized) and BB 11 mid (minimum customized) can serve big with accuracy, provide with 'proper' technique and footwork, both were good baseline bat with more than enough power and spin. Cannot comment on net play as I'm not good at the net.

    As for the MG Prestige Mid, it is the only model that I loved after the Prestige Classic Mid. Though the MG is still not the original Prestige Classic, but the barebone setup already appealed to me and gave me comfortable and trusty feeling. At least I know how the racquet 'react' & 'behave' to my certain shots.
