The Biomimetic F4.0 Tour updates the Biomimetic 400 Tour with a little more mass in the head and a higher swingweight (316 RDC). The result is a racquet that offers slightly more plow through and pop while still remaining fast and explosive. With its crisp, lively and spin-friendly response, the F4.0 should allow aggressive ball strikers to crank out some heavy balls. From the baseline our TW playtesters found this one to be well suited to the modern power game. Fast swings produced penetrating depth with spin-loaded bounces that jumped off the court. At net the extra weight in the head gives this one a little more stability than the 400 Tour, but this stick still errs on the side of speed, making it great on fast exchanges. On serves the F4.0 offers a great blend of precision, pop and spin. Aggressive servers will have the needed accuracy to target different corners of the box with slices, kickers and flat heaters. All in all, Dunlop has produced a fine update. With a slight boost in stability this one is a little more effective against pace, but it still remains quite maneuverable and makes a nice option for those in need of a light player's racquet.
