    Hello,

    i'm interested in buying a new racket, because I've accidentally broke my Carlton Aeroblade ISO Ti. :rolleyes:


    does anybody know the difference between...
    Carlton Aeroblade ISO TT vs. Carlton PowerTrail Viper ISO


    Has anybody played with ether of these rackets, how do they handle?


    thanks for the help.

    best regards

    They look identical - same weight/balance/flex/length/frame/price/etc.
    It wouldn't surprise me if the Powertrail is just a re-branding of the same product.
    Personally, I'd go with the Aeroblade, just because I think the paint job is much nicer (love the amber/gold color), and you can probably get it slightly cheaper.
    Expect it to feel virtually identical to the racket you just broke, as the specs are the same again.

    i have got both rackets and still use them both, they are realy good rackets to play with but when i got the powertrail it was slightly different so i had to get uss to it. the powertrail definately gave me more power and control even tho there specs are the same. they both are realy good lookin rackets and they are realy good to play with but overall i would choose the power trail :)

    Yeah??? then you just answerd my question :) thanks a lot :)
    because now i've been playing with the racket Carlton Fireblade ISO Tour,
    which is my backup racket, that i got as a gift, from my coworkers,
    but i can't get adjust to it, like i have a feeling that something is off...
    Did you ever get that feeling? So i've been playing with my AeroBlade Ti, until i broke it...

    Anyway, the specs say that the FireBlade flexibility is Stiff, and i don't know
    if thats it or what.
    Well thanks a bunch for the advise... I wanted to buy the AeroBlade,
    but if you say, that the PowerTrail is better, i belive you all the way.

    Just tell me something, which racket does feel stiffer, the AeroBlade or the PowerTrail?

    i would say the aeroblade feels stiffer even tho they say the same thing, but if i was given one right now from the two i would me pleased to play with either racket because they are realy good rackets.
