Technologies

Aeroskin CX: A technology inspired by shark skin. The unique surface application is strategically applied to the racquet frame. The dimpled texture creates localized turbulence, streamlining airflow over the racquet surface for an aerodynamic effect. This reduces drag by up to 36%—an 11% increase on previous Aeroskin Technology. The result is a faster racquet speed for more power, maneuverability, and reaction time.

BioFibre: The superior natural fibers incorporated into the throat and handle have been extracted from plant stems. These increase racquet stability and reduce unwanted shock, producing 18% greater feel and control.

MoS2 Grommets: Inspired by snake skin, a unique self-lubricating polymer blend reduces string friction, leading to 27% greater power. Increased abrasion resistance means 40% greater durability. Greater string movement plus reduced friction gives greater power and greater durability.

I am a (not young) 4.5 player who grew up on the aesthetically stunning Davis Imperial racquets and only reluctantly gave up wood and recently purchased this dynamite new Dunlop racquet (inspired by Amalgros's beautiful backhand)! After sustaining a sever elbow injury after playing for years with weapon-like, clubs (Pete's Wilson Pro Staff 85, Roger's Wilson Blx 90) which left my arm in Lord Nelson (post-Trafalgar)/Venus de Milo kinda shape. My, oh my, what a pleasure this all around solid racquet is! My arm is thriving and the comparatively Texas-size sweet spot is a pleasure to be behold!

I have been playing with the 500 Tour for the last

I have been playing with the 500 Tour for the last couple of years and liked it better than the 200, 300 overall, but could not generate the control I wanted and found it a little unforgiving. I recently did a demo with the F5 and Wilson 99S. Both racquets offered more control particularly the Wilson with its spin generation but the F5 had a lot more power, felt more solid, and even with its string pattern generated very good spin. The new F5 head design definitely offers a much bigger sweet spot and was better for serve and volleying. When hitting out aggressively, the control and power is noticeably better than the 500 Tour. I viewed the Wilson as a break though racquet and really liked it, but overall had to give the nod to the F5 it is one sweet hitting racquet and the power and control was great.
