Which Dunlop would you recommend?
 
I am looking to get a racquet with a 18x20 string pattern and have read good things about the Aerogel 4D 300 Tour and the Biomimetic 300 Tour. These 2 are close in specs so I was wondering which racquet you would recommend? I mainly was wondering which one was easier on your arm and shoulder. I've been getting pain in my arm from using my RDiS 200 (even after using a soft poly in a hybrid).

Thanks.

I also was considering the Wilson BLX Blade 98 since it is 18X20 string pattern. I'm a little worried about it having a slightly higher swingweight. I prefer one below 325 but could either adjust or put some lead in the handle.

Thanks.

Well, the Blade is more demanding frame for sure. The 300T is a GREAT and super comfy. One thing tho, the sweet spot is low. I don't know if this matters to you but it did for me becasue I hit top 1/3 of the hoop. I put lead tape at 12 to move the ss up. I would personally go with the 300.

Thanks for the suggestions. I tend to hit in the upper part of the hoop also. I usually add a little lead to 10 and 2 to move it up and increase stability.

I ordered a demo of the Biomimetic 300 tour. Unfortunately the aerogel didn't have an option to demo it. I noticed the specs on them are almost identical so I was wondering what playing characteristics made them different? Unless I really like the Bio 300 tour a lot I'm leaning towards getting the Aerogell 300 tour since they are considerably cheaper and I could get 2 of them after I trade in several of my older racquets.

Thanks for any help/suggestions.
