The added heft of this Tour version of Dunlop's Aerogel 500 makes it a better match for advanced players. The weight of the Aerogel 500 Tour offers impressive stability, improving the racquet's response during heavy hitting. The racquet offers good access to spin with plenty of ball bite from the stringbed. The weight and swingweight of the racquet makes for penetrating shots and the feel is comfortable and solid. The racquet possesses the crisp and clean response of its lighter brother (the Aerogel 500), yet the added mass also provides even more comfort and stability. Players will find this one easy to get around at net. There's plenty of feel for hitting short angle volleys and the weight and stiff beam offer plenty of punch for powering volleys away. Our TW playtest crew enjoyed serving with this racquet, finding excellent targeting with impressive pace. Stronger intermediates and advanced players looking for a little more pop and spin than found with most player's racquets should definitely take this one for a demo. Best suited to 4.5+ level players.
