Say you’re a good player but you don’t want a racquet with too much heft and a tiny sweet spot. The Aerogel 3Hundred might be for you. It doesn’t have the control of a traditional player’s racquet, but it’s easier to handle and has a smaller learning curve. The addition of Aerogel, the world’s lightest solid material, provides stiffness, stability, and plenty of pop without making the racquet cumbersome and head heavy (the traditional way of beefing up a racquet’s power). This keeps the weight more than manageable, allowing you to take big cuts at the ball. If you’re a high-level player who must return big power shots, keep in mind that the frame can be unstable on off-center hits. Those looking for a little extra sturdiness might want a touch more weight, which makes the Aerogel 3Hundred a good candidate for some lead tape.
