    One is marketed as Aerogel, the other as Microgel...

    One is described as the lightest solid that is able to support up to 4,000 times its weight...

    The other is described as providing a rock-solid feel...

    microgel is smaller, hence "micro"

    aerogel is more aerodynamic, hence "aero"




    (We all know it's bullsh*t)

    I have no idea what Microgel is but Aerogel is an actual substance. Whether or not it's used to the extent that Dunlop claims is another question, as it is still very expensive.

    Ive hit with the mg prestiege mp/pro and the aerogel 200&300 side by side, mg just feels better mainly because it feels more solid & stable through each hit.
