hello to everyone, im kinda a beginner player at squash and recently i bought a DUNLOP AEROGEL 4D PRO GT-X. The problem is that i feel i dont have the power that i need on this racket, as other people on the club have another type of DUNLOP racket and when i tried them, is like you feel the strings vibrate when you hit and the shot comes out much more powerful than in mine

My question is, what can i do to better mi raquet? do i have to change the strings to a 24lb instead of the ones that come with it? or i just find myself a new racket?

Where are you located? I'm looking for a Pro GT-X and have a couple of racquets you may  like. I'm in Toronto.

There is nothing previously been discussed about this racket as far as I can see.  However, the Relevant Content tab (top left) has lots of discussion on strings/stringing which should be helpful.

Just a comment on the vibration you mentioned...people put vibration dampeners to protect their elbows, so if there is vibration when hitting I would be sus of that too.  Sure, if you hit off center it is not unusual to get vibration.

I recommend you go to the Squash Library/Technique and review your grip/swing.

 DUNLOP AEROGEL 4D PRO GT-X is not a racket that will generate power for the beginner or for players with poor technique. first, i would restring to 24lbs, maybe even 22lbs, with tecnifibre x-one biphase, which is fairly soft and should generate more power for you. if you're still struggling, then perhaps it's better to switch to a teardrop-shaped racket. some popular choices are tecnifibre carboflex, black knight c2c nxs, anything by wilson. hope this helps
