I’ve hit a road block on this tennis journey of mine. (If you missed the first leg of my “journey,” check it out here.) I am being Ms. Indecisive. I’ve rekindled my fling with the Dunlop Aerogel 4D 300 Tour, and I’m still flirting with the ProKennex Black Ace 98. Every time the playtesters head out for the courts I look for these two racquets. Because we’re currently testing the Black Ace, I don’t always get my hands on this one. I have been leaning toward the Dunlop this past week, but perhaps that’s because I’ve been too slow to get to the ProKennex first! I really would like to hit them side by side, though.
The Dunlop offers me great control, but I like the added power I think I’m getting from the Black Ace. My shots just have more weight to them. On the other hand, I’m getting better topspin with the Dunlop; I suspect it’s because I can swing it so much faster. Then again, man, I love to hit slice with the Black Ace. However, the Dunlop is also much easier for me to use on quick pickups on those really deep baseline shots. Ack! See what I mean, Ms. Indecisive.
I’m going to settle this soon. I have to or I just might drive myself nuts. If it’s just a flirtation with these racquets, the honeymoon phase has to be over soon. Right?
Until next time, Happy Hitting (with any racquet)!
