Reviews:

Dunlop’s most powerful closed-throat squash racket, the Aerogel 4D Elite, has been upgraded into the new Biomimetic lineup – so how has it changed?

We can say that everything stayed the way it was, only new technologies were added to improve some properties of the racquet. It still offers a great balance of power and control, slightly toward power (as opposed to the Dunlop Ultimate which leans toward control thanks to its denser string pattern).

The new technologies include AeroSkin (a textured surface of the frame to reduce the aerodynamic drag and achieve better maneuverability and faster reaction time), Gecko Tac for better grip and HM6 Carbon to reduce vibrations. And from customer reviews we can assume the technologies managed to improve the qualities of this racket a bit – they report it swings through the air nicely and also that the grip is good and stays tacky.

Just a note: for the 2013 version, the technologies changed again, adding for example the BioFibre to enhance the overall stiffness.
