Comments: I've been playing Junior tournaments and ITF events so I really needed a
change of racquet. So, I decided to demo the Dunlop Biomimetic 500 and it felt
absolutely great! I got the ultimate spin and control! I hit a very heavy ball so I needed a
racquet with great control. The strings that came in it were the Dunlop Silk strings and
they were fantastic. I play with a hybrid now of Black Widow and natural gut. It gives me
even more power. Dunlop has done a great job with these. I got 12 of these racquets
plus a 10 pack bag. Love it!
Comments: I just switched to the Biomimetic 500 from a Head iRadical MP. This racquet felt fantastic for me right
off the bat. Groundstrokes and serves are improved and volleys are crisper. The sweetspot is pretty generous and off center hits
are not a deal breaker. I also have a lot of touch with this frame. The frame is slightly stiffer and lighter than the iRadical. Made
the transition very easy. I can vary my swing speed and have a very predictable response off the frame every time. I tried
switching to the Youtek Radicals (MP and PRO models), but the racquets just didn't swing right for me. I couldn't hit touch shots
as well or consistently with the Youteks. The lightness of the frame makes adjustments (via lead tape) easy and reversible if
needed. I've played about 5 hours with this frame and I don't have a bad thing to say
Comments: This year was the first time I ventured beyond the low cost beginners' racquets section of the local
sports store and got into the more specialized racquets and strings that Tennis Warehouse offers. I ended up buying three
racquets, all Dunlop's: a 300 Tour, a 500, then a 200 Tour. I bought the 500 because I hurt my shoulder practicing serves with the
300 Tour, and thought a lighter racquet might help. I then realized that my technique was at fault, not the racquet, and to cut a
long story short, discovered I like heavier racquets with poly strings. I modified the 500 by adding 1 ounce of lead weights in the
handle and about 0.8 ounce spread at 3 and 9 o'clock top make it into a 12 ounce or so racquet. In this configuration it works
great for me, it plays similarly to the 200 Tour but with a slightly bigger, more forgiving, head. Don't be afraid to customize this
Comments: There is ample top spin in this racquet and allows for flat strokes. It is very nice at the net but it takes a
little time to get used to with the serve. Kick is easy to access but flat serves take some time to get used to. My favorite part of
this stick is the amount of feel with volleys.
Comments: Let's put it this way. I started playing tennis just 8 months ago using an aerogel 100. Being a squash
player and with a little coaching, things progressed well but stagnated quite soon too.
