    I haven't seen an Airblade Carbon TT in person but it should be similar to the Powerblade Carbon TT except that it is oval head vs iso head shape. The Powerblade Superlite is supposed to be slightly lighter than the Powerblade Carbon TT. However, the difference listed is about 3g and the variation on these Carlton rackets can get up to about 2 grams.

    The rim cross section of the Carbon models is slightly thicker and less "blade" or " aerodynamic" than the Superlight models. I suspect it is to either increase the end loading or because the Carbon has inferior material. The Superlights I've had/have are very strong and hold up well to high tensions of over 35lbs and racket clashes. I've read reports of frame failures on the Carbon TT version.
