Well if its specs your looking for why didnt you ask?
Usually the racquet is based upon three things:
Weight of the racquet
Size of the head
and to a lesser extent. the factory string,
Most racquets tend to improve these four aspects of a racquet... so for example you had the:
Dunlop areogel mfil pro and then the aerogel 4d.. surely theres going to be a difference..?
Different racquets are made for different purposes. Just like the aerogel ultra, that racquet was perfect for drop shots and ccatching the nick, whereas the aerogel pro is more of a sturdy racquet allowing you to hit the ball cleaner when going for a drive..
Usually they tend to make products better, therefore the price being higher.. like any company would
And a final point, NO-ONE can hit a ball hard enough in a proper squash match through personal experience..

'touch' isn't generic advertising blurb, it is just something that's hard to explain. It's very much to do with control, which is what a better racket gives you. You may be able to hit the ball hard enough and put it where you want, but with a good quality racket you'd be able to do both of those things more consistently.

I've just asked "how are they better" and no-one has really come up with a coherent answer. The best we've got is "you can hit the ball harder" to which I reply "I already hit the ball hard enough" and "the ball goes where you want it to go" to which I reply "the ball already goes where I want it to go" (or at least, when it doesn't it wasn't the racquet at fault, it was me not concentrating properly).
So we still haven't established what advantage there is in a more expensive racquet. One would think that if they were so much better, then someone might be able to be more specific reason than generic advertising blurb about "touch" and "feel".
Another thing to bear in mind is the lighter rackets are much more agile. This has the advantage of allowing you to volley balls that you'd perhaps need to leave and retrieve from the back with a heavier, harder to maneuver racket.
Out of interest, what racket do you have?

It'll change your life! I mean game. On a more serious note, Im not discrediting your racquet, it probably is a very good racquet. However, wilson aren't very well known to make the best racquets of today. That's why I would recommend the original brands..
And I don't know if you read my post about the racquet specs but above i explained why a racquet of today will be of better use.. Hopefully that might give you an insight into why an expensive racquet is usually better than older racquet.. Post#45
