This latest edition of the Aerogel 100 offers Dunlop's latest technology to the mix. This players racquet offers an open string pattern in it's 90 square inch hoop, being very maneuverable with a very manageable weight and swing weight. Using four directional braiding, or 4D, Dunlop has added this technology to this racquet, offering less torsional twisting, providing added stability. This classic stick presents plenty of feel and control while being low powered, allowing those with advanced strokes to take big cuts at the ball with a good level of accuracy. At net, the Aerogel 4D 100 offers accuracy, touch and feel. With the manageable static weight and lower swing weight, this racquet also provides outstanding mobility when volleying. The Aerogel 4D 100 is a must try for the advanced level player seeking a players' stick with great maneuverability.

It is contructed using four braided fibres of superlight S-glass fiber wrapped in an aluminum alloy sheath.
The fibres are aligned at 0, 90, 22 and-22û orientations which enables stresses to be supported in multi-directions whereas standard carbon sheets are only orientated in one direction. This means that one layer of 4D material has the equivalent properties to four layers of standard carbon layed up at orientations. Consequently 4D material is four times more effective than standard carbon. Furthermore, by using one layer, 4D is also softer and less bulky than 4 layers of carbon.
At 5 and 7 o'clock the multi-directional properties of the 4D braided cloth help stabilize the torsional twist at key points of the racquet.
At 3 and 9 o'clock one layer of 4D braided cloth provides the torsional stability previously only achievable with several layers of carbon fibre. As a result of only one layer being used instead of several this softer material also provides superb touch and feel at ball contact.
