Combining technologies in this super-oversize racquet, the Dunlop AeroGEL 1000 offers tremendous power with comfort and maneuverability. Using AeroGEL and M-Fil construction in the hoop combines lightweight and strength for provided power while adding the new Aerobridge system, which helps dampen string vibration, adding touch and feel during play. With a 118 square inch head size, the AeroGEL 1000 produces plenty of forgiveness with a generous sweetspot. We found this racquet to have a solid feel with plenty of pop while being very maneuverable. The open "fan" string pattern not only adds power, but we found some surprising bite on the ball providing access to some spin. The 1000 supplies good punch while being very mobile at net. Being light in the hand with a large stringbed, we found put-aways a cinch when volleying. When serving, power is easily generated with enough access to spin to keep it harnessed. Best suited to 2.0-4.0 level players looking for power, maneuverability and comfort.
