    Anyone want to chime in. This frame is a good replacement for the Aerogel 100. I am using both frames in a side by side comparison. I do like the Euro green ones better even though they are exactly the same as the US black/blue spec ones.

    Does anyone know the difference between the green/blk Bio100 and the teal/blk Bio100? In playability.

    The new F100 seems a bit too lightweight.

    I have both and have played with them quite a bit the past few months. My son now hits with them as I've gone back to my 2012 PDR+ sticks.

    The differences really only seem to be whatever string job is in one vs the other.
    We both agree there's no difference, other than the green Euro weighs 1 gram more than the teal version.

    Fun, fun racquets, but when I go against some big hitters, I need loose tensions (mid 40s) and a natural gut hybrid. Too much vibration/shock otherwise.

    Why does my Bio 100 (green) I got from TW-Euro has the swing weight of 307 (using swing weight calculator at TW)? I'm getting around 306~308. That's 4D 100 range.

    There is no difference between the colorways in terms of playability. Same racquet, different paintjob.

    I am slowly transitting over to this frame (I broke my 4D 200 16 x 19s).

    I have a Green and Blue one and feel no difference in how they play.

    Currently dialling in strings and weight / balance preferences.

    I find that they need at least a leather grip to improve the feel and to create a nicer balance.

    Strings to try: Prince Premier Attack 16 full bed, Ashaway Monogut zx 1.30mm (maybe 1.22mm) & Pac Classic Gut 1.25mm with Scorpion 1.22 crosses.

    What?:confused:

    What should it be? I find these swing slightly heavier than my Biomimetic 200 Lite which is around the SW 308 mark.

    Would like to add, these are true 90sq. inch!

    Compared these to a BLX90 which is closer to my 95 sq inch 200 and even has a more open string pattern.

    The SS is small but very erm.. sweet!

    According to the teal Bio 100 on TW the swing weight is in the 320's. If the colorway doesn't make a difference between the Bio 100's in specs then shouldn't my green Bio be in the 320's too?

    Does anyone know where to purchase a Bio 100 green with specs identical to the Bio 100 teal? My green Bio 100 keeps showing up as 309 as the swing weight (strung with leather and overgrip only).

    The last European shop I knew selling lime green Bio has sold it out. I think you should find that in China, there're still a lot.

    I just knew this club exist. I'm joining in with my stock lime green Bio 100 with Gamma leather. Love it so much. But I'm worried how long it would last since its head bumper is almost non existence (I tend to have my racket support me when having sudden turn).

    I just ordered a teal Bio 100 and now can finally compare to my green Bio 100. I haven't played with my green one too much, I like the looks of it way better but i'm more interested in the specs of the teal's (if TW's spec is correct) because I won't have to use so much lead tape for it; and it's way more customizable for having a bunch more swing weight. I can't wait!

    What are your string setup for these rackets?

    I think the 4D100 grommet should fit.

    Please let us know how the teal Bio 100 compares with your green Bio 100 stock-to-stock. I'm also wondering if the swingweight of the teal one really is higher than that of the green one.

    Thanks.

    I have to drop out of the Bio 100 Club.

    I traded away my Bio 100 for an AG4D100. I thought it would feel the same, but more stable.

    It felt maybe a hair more stable, but not the same and not as nice, IMO.

    It had some of that new, modern, Babolat racquet feel, IMO.
