Comments: I demo'ed this racquet and was a little uneasy at first due to the slightly small sweetspot (I was coming
from the Juice 100 which has a large and forgiving sweetspot) but decided to buy it anyways because of all the other phenomenal
aspects. Groundstrokes are killer on both sides, and I feel like I take as big a swing as I want and the ball will stay in. I found it
particularly helpful on low balls. Volleys are excellent and the racquet is extremely maneuverable and stable at the net. Serves are
also excellent whether you're hitting it flat or with any kind of spin. Really my only knock on this racquet is the small sweetspot,
but once you use it for a while it's harder to notice. I highly recommend it if you're looking for a great control-oriented racquet.
Plus the cosmetic is amazing and it comes at a good price too.
Comments: After almost a year of using this racquet, I need to say that this is the best racquet I could find for my
needs and everything about it is excellent. I couldn't be more happy about it! The control really helped me for my really flat style
on both sides. The most outstanding characteristic of the racquet is its awesome control. In addition, the spin and power really
helped me improve my game. It's a must try for everyone looking a racquet that's really control-oriented.
Comments: This stick has improved my confidence and results on the court. I have found it to be the best balance
of power and control out there, and I have tested many frames lately. In all areas it is amazing, but it excels on serves. I have
powerful, accurate flat serves but also great kick and slice because of the head speed you can generate with the 300 Tour. Placing
your serves with this racquet seems easy. You can and better swing hard with this stick. The 18x20 pattern is not overly powerful.
A player with full strokes and good technique will love the sweetspot, but if you miss you will be disappointed. I did add lead tape
at 3 and 9 to deal with the stability issues and also got a little larger sweetspot and more plow through from it. Returns serve well,
with enough power to block the ball back but also to swing freely and keep it in. Volleys are crisp and accurate and it is light and
maneuverable at net. Attacking and defensive slices also seem to be easy but effective shots with the 300 Tour. It gives a great
sound when you center the ball and it absorbs shock really well. I have arm issues so I play with multis, and have found it arm
friendly for a stick with its stiffness and feel. The Aeroskin and cosmetic is top notch.
Comments: What a racquet! I used to own the 4D version and was pretty impressed with it. The only knock about
it was its stability like numerous others have mentioned. Dunlop has seemed to addressed that with this version and it's
significantly stiffer and more solid. Despite this, it's still just s little unstable but not by much at all. I added some lead and it's a
beast. It's pretty low powered so it may not be ideal for players with a more compact swing. However, it more than makes up for
it in the control that this racquet has. This is a great racquet! A+
Comments: I switched to this frame 8 months ago and still love it's
feel and control. It is definitely a lighter weight, control oriented
player's frame. Power is good, and it is somewhat stiff but still
plays soft. It is a modern player's frame with some old school feel.
Those with long, fast, developed strokes will appreciate the frame most
and benefit the most. I have some of my frames strung with a full bed
of Kirshbaum Pro Line II and others strung with a full bed of Isospeed
Professional Classic. Both are 17g and strung at 55/52. I get decent
power and awesome directional control for both groundstrokes and
volleys. Monster power to be had on serves and decent spin on all
shots. By dropping the cross tension 3-4 lbs you open up the
sweetspot some more. Also, this frame begs for some lead in the upper
hoop. I have 1/4" lead tape running from 11:00-1:00 on both sides.
That is all I needed to get the frame to respond perfectly for me and
better handle hard service returns or defensive shots. This will be
my frame for the next couple of years. Two thumbs up!!
Comments: I demoed this racket and while I loved the precision and
useful pop, this racket is somewhat unforgiving on off-center shots. The
sweet spot is minuscule and when it is strung above 60 lbs, it KILLS your
arm/wrist. This is coming from a 19-year-old that never has problems.
This even had Dunlop Silk strung in it which is supposed to be a soft,
premium multi. Better to drop the tension to probably around 58-56.
Otherwise this racket will really start to hurt your arm/wrist. Other
than that and the small sweet spot, its a sweet racket.
Comments: I demo'd this racquet and I've been using it for 4 days now. I feel that I'm really getting into
my groove with it. I love the feel and control. Volleys feel very sound to say the least. My serves are hitting where I'm
aiming. Most likely my next racquet.
Comments: I figured since Verdasco uses this stick and he it a pretty powerful player that this racquet
would be up to par. I was wrong and I immediately put it away after 10 minutes of "play." Definitely needs some
customizing if you go for this racquet.
Comments: Played this and the previous model, and I found just a little more feel with this one. I assume
it may due
to its higher stiffness but it felt more solid and I got more pop, even with the old demo strings. And just like the
this one felt unstable in stock form, but that just left room for some custom weighting adjustments. After some added
stick really begins to shine, especially from the baseline. Cosmetics look pretty unique too, but I didn't really like it, or
aeroskin texture (which I felt didn't really make it swing faster). Overall a really solid stick for anyone looking for a
to customize, yet light enough for any junior to play in stock form.
Comments: Just fell in love with this stick. Strung it with a hybrid mix of Babolat Pro Hurricane Tour &
62lb. Forehands feel like butter even against heavy balls, backhands are just as stable. This stick puts a good amount
of rip on the
ball and the serves have good pace too. Some lead can be added at 3 & 9 on the head for added stability and thump
required. Forgot to mention its the sexist frame ever.
Comments: Good racquet! Control is great. Strung it with Solinco Tour Bite 17G/48lbs on the main and
Hexi Fiber Multi Filament 17G/50lbs on the cross and it gives great feel and spin on your shots!!
Comments: Beautiful beast, awesome control and much better than the radical or the stiff Blade. Tried in
full bed of
co-poly and love the placement and awesome control - much more increased than my old Pure Storm. The weight is
is much better with a multi or a hybrid. I couldn't be happier about my game - will buy two more.
Comments: Before, the Dunlop 4D Aerogel 300 Tour was a disappointment for me
because of the terrible stability. In this version, the stability is
still the only issue, but it was not as bad as the 4D version. Overall,
the racquet was outstanding. The Tennis Warehouse review is right about the serving of this racquet, it was amazing.
Comments: This is a precise frame with good power and scalpel like control. Feel at impact is solid and
comfortable. Dunlop did a great job here. I believe it is a great choice for an all court player who swings fast and wants
and stability in a lighter weight package. A much better choice than a Head Radical (MP or Pro) or Wilson Blade in my
prefer the feel and control of a soft multifilament and that is what I like in this frame too. Two thumbs up!
Comments: This is a great stick! I have been using the Head Areogel 4D 200 Tour for quite some time
but I had to
wheel it around to get good pace. With the Biomimetic 300 Tour I can get same pace with less effort. I never served as
well as I
can do with this racquet, easy to hit flat and sliced serves with great precision. All and all a great racquet, quite easy to
Comments: The Biomimetic 300 Tour is remarkably similar in size, construction and playing
characteristics to the old Tecnifibre T-Fight 320. You hold the frames together and almost every nuance matches (aside
color). I can better understand now Verdasco's switch. It feels like the 300 was tailor made to his specs. It's pros and
similar to the TFight as well: Great access to spin, but unforgiving. On anything outside the sweetspot, it feels like you
picked up a board instead of your tennis racquet. Hit in the sweetspot, you get that crisp satisfying pop that turns
heads on a
Comments: Wow! I have switched to this racquet due to its beautiful performance, and I intend to stick
with it for
the next few years. It has excellent control I hit a few extreme angles I cannot hit with my other racquet and bageled a
opponent in my FIRST MATCH WITH IT after hitting with it for only 10 minutes! I know, right?! It is maneuverable which
useful for balls that are coming at me fast, but stable enough to control it. The feel is excellent too.
Downside: There is a power deficiency on my backhand which is a shorter, more compact, but reliable stroke, and
that's it. I think
about fixing it by adding a little weight, but am afraid of ruining the good things I have going on with everything else
I noticed the grip is a little larger that what is indicated, like a 4 1/4 feels like a 4 3/8.
Comments: Best ever! I get amazing control! Fun to play with!
Recommended to advanced players.
Comments: I recently demoed this racket, and although it has many pros I will not be purchasing this
frame. I was
looking for a racket that had a little more power than a player's racket, had a SW between 315 and 330. I think that this
a good blend of power and control, similar to the Head Youtek Radical MP but with slightly more power. The biggest
cons to this
frame are that it has a small sweetspot, off center shots produced some pretty harsh feedback. The Youtek Radical MP
better in these regards. The other con was that this racket is less resistance to torque, off center shots or heavy hits
racket around quite a bit. I also did not like the racket head shape, it is too teardrop shaped for me, and I prefer a more
racket head. The Radical MP. The bottom line: This racket is too unforgiving for shots that land outside its small
sweetspot for my
ability. A more advanced player would not be as affected by this though.
Comments: Off the first hit I could tell this stick had pop, power and a plush feel. I'm coming off playing
trustworthy Ti. Radicals with lead tape at the 9, 3, and 12 o'clock positions. I wanted to try something with a little more
more maneuverability. It is true what the reviews have said about the stick getting pushed around during heavy hitting
and it took me a while to dial in on serves because of the low swing weight. But I've added some lead tape at the 9 and
so I'm going to see how that works. Overall so far, I've enjoyed the pop, power, and weight. It's a stick worth trying out
if you like
the prestige midsize and want more power and less swing-weight, or a radical with a little more power and feel without
Comments: Purchased this racquet to replace my trustworthy Dunlop M-Fil 300. Below are the pros and
cons of the
Dunlop 300 tour: PROS: Loads of control, the faster you swing the crisper it is. This racquet swings very fast!! Serves
exceptional. Very controllable fast-flat serves are heavy for a racquet of this weight and kick/slice serves are easy to
shots, drop shots and placement are also second to none. Feels like you can place the ball anywhere on the court. This
also excels in slice shots. CONS: The biggest con is stability, which is shocking for a tour/'players' racquet. Definitely
tape to help with stability. Also, being a 'players' racquet the sweetspot isn't the biggest, and this racquet isn't very
an 'all or nothing' racquet. If you're having a good day, you'll feel unstoppable, if you're having an off day, you'll feel
like a NTRP
level of 2-3 will beat you 6-1. It spins ok but racquet feels more at home with flat fast shots. Very easy to rip baseline
it requires very good technique.
RECOMMENDED?? Yes but only to those who have a big serves, and or have a good solid ground stroke that does not
heavily on huge topspin to keep the ball in play.
Comments: Played it with the Biomimetic 200 Plus. Both were very "weak" and sensitive to torsional
gave me a hard time returning serves. The control was very good and it was easy to keep the depth in the shots. Serves
outstanding! Backhands never played really well with this racquet (one handed and slice). Even though the control was
racquet really lacked stability in all shots.
Comments: Went for a demo last night. Tried 3 of the new Dunlops (200 plus, 300 & 300 tour) vs my
storm. The 300 tour was amazing. A bit too powerful at the start but as the new strings wore in, it became alive.
Topspin was ok
but nowhere near my pure storm's (PS) potential. Grip was shorter than the PS so the 2HBH felt a bit weird. Control was
though. I felt like I could place and/or bash the ball into a coke can anywhere on the court. It also swung pretty fast too
comparable to the PS. The best thing however was the serve. What a ripper. This racquet does all the work and my flat
effortless pace. Kick/slice/2nd serves weren't as good as the PS but my 1st first felt ~10-15% faster. (Serving with the
was a clear standout and a big plus for me because I win most of my games with the "Free" points from my serve.)
Comments: Ok so I went hitting again with it today and here are my thoughts
Comments: At 53 years of age I decided that it was time to get rid of my Head Microgels and get
to use. After discussing with the guys at my LTS if Tommy Robredo uses a 10.5 oz racket (some of the guys at my LTS
that the rackets he uses were just painted and were heavier) on the pro tour I decided to take the 300 tour and a
Storm GT out for a try. One of the things I noticed immediately was the 300 tour had good power (considering it was
this Dunlop Silk demo string). The Dunlop also had good control and feel. Another thing I liked was that the head
shape and beam
profile on the Dunlop was similar to my old Microgels where as the Babolat with the aero profile was not the same. The
also felt vague and had less power (I also think Babolat rackets are for western grip players). Anyway I decided to buy 2
300 Tours and I am going to restring them with a different string at a little lower tension and go from there.
Comments: Sorry Dunlop. You lost me with this version. Have played with every 300 since the original
decreased swing weight in comparison to earlier versions, the Biomimetic feels much lighter in the hand, less stable on
hits and not as solid when playing the big boys with their 12oz sticks. Agree with others that the power is up to
Favorite is still the M-fil with the Aerogel 4D a close second. Would also appreciate your bringing back the "old school"
Tommy Hass used to carry. Love the classic look and colors.
Comments: First thing to notice is how amazing it looks; they did a great job on the design. This
racquet really lets
you swing away, and I found that not holding anything back really allowed the frame to grant me more accuracy. I
generating topspin on the FH, and almost half of my BH slices were shanking off the frame, but I gladly trade that for
winners I achieved from being able to hit hard, flat balls to anywhere on the court and move opponents at will. My first
more power, and placement. Second serves need a little more work, but it might just need a change of mentality to
adjust to hit a
flatter ball. My returns (favorite benefit from this stick) were amazing. I was really able to turn any return of serve into
advantage and control points. This stick allowed for some really solid feeling deep volleys, it lacks a little in terms of
drops and angles though. I think a little tweaking with the strings may allow for some more touch and spin, and give
this stick an
Comments: Hit with this frame last night and did not like it. I recently moved from the Wilson nCode 6.1
the Babolat PDGTR std length and now am looking to move back to a more control oriented frame. The 300 is a very
maneuverable frame, but did not have the plow (heft?) and buttery feel that I am looking for....ah well the search
Comments: The swingweight is the significant difference. Though 4D 300 Tour and Biomimetic 300 Tour
similar weight, it is easy to swing using the latter 300. I have moderate swinging style and using 4D was an issue as it
laboring to generate such spin after 2 full sets of playing doubles. This isn't the case with Biomimetic. My friends were
complaining of my ball coming off deep at the baseline. Am not sure of Aeroskin, but slicing especially for volley
wicked. Love this stick and the colors, matches my barricades. Kudos to Dunlop for the upgrades.
Comments: Just used it and it is a nice feeling racquet but not for me. My friend absolutely loves the
and I think he would dig this as well. Good weight, good feel and if you want no problem customizing it. The 300 tour
are both designed to fit a large range of players. I preferred the Pacific X Pro with its more stable feel but a lot of others
this lighter feeling racquet. I've used the aerogel 300, 4d 300, and now this. 300 series simply isn't for me but if you
are a fan it
should be an easy transition. I think the 200 Plus will be a better fit.
Comments: This is a solid racquet and has some mass for 11.3 ounces. First serves were great, second
have had more kick but weren't disappointing, and serve returns were great cause I was able to really swing through
without having the racquet be pushed around too much (could use some added weight for heavy serves). I was also
with groundstrokes. My forehand was accurate with good pace and my backhand (my best shot) I could hardly miss,
but same with
the second serves the topspin was harder to generate. Overall I give the racquet a 7-8 out of 10 and am looking to pick
one up for
my own and put some real strings in it.
