The Dunlop Aerogel 6Hundred is a user-friendly racquet for players who are above the intermediate level but not quite advanced. It’s fairly light and powerful, but not to the point where you can’t take a good cut. It’s slightly head heavy, which gives it a deceptively hefty feel at 10 ounces. Yet handling the 6Hundred isn’t a problem. The head size is bigger than a mid-plus for added forgiveness but still smaller and more control-oriented than an oversize. The Aerobridge system in the throat, designed to ﬁlter out string vibrations on the mains (the strings that go up and down), gives the racquet a pretty soft response. The quarter-inch of extra length was appreciated for easy power and good control on serves. While playtesters weren’t blown away by the 6Hundred, they found it to be an all-around solid performer. “It had the right amount of power at all places,” said a 3.5 female all-courter.
Offers a balance of power, control, touch, and comfort in an easy-to-handle frame, creating the ultimate “tweener” racquet.
