“ Brand: Dunlop / Type: Tennis Racquet „
At 12.5 oz this is a fairly heavy racquet, which for some will be an advantage, and for others, a disadvantage. The strongest feature I felt was the stability on volleys, half volleys and overheads, perhaps due to the extra weight. Off center hits pretty much die. It has a traditional racquet design, including flexibility and thin/straight beam, merged with modern day materials. Also, note the overlay ultra-high modulus graphite, elastomer yoke, and kevlar. The muscle Weave does demand that the player creates some of his own power; if you have full, long strokes and generate your own pace this racquet will be a dream for you. It's great from the baseline, solid at the net, and an absolutely a dream on serves, while providing no vibration. It also provides exceptional control, spin generation, and good maneuverability. I would recommend this racquet to anyone seeking a control frame with a below average amount of power, and players with full strokes. It can take a little bit of getting used to, as any racquet can, finding that sweet spot and consistently hitting it, but once achieved, this racquet offers good rewards. Definitely worth a look.
Yes, when i saw this racket for the first time i'd never even heard of it. I knew about Dunlop, but this collage of numbers really took me back. Any way it was reasonably priced so i decided to have a go. It wasn't my kind of a racket, it was uncomfortable, poorly designed and i kept feeling shock in my arm. The colours were fine if you were going to use the racket, maybe once or twice a year, but not every day. It proved a useless buy and i think it lies somewhere in my attic now. I would not recommend this racket to any regular tennis players.
