Comments: This stick is absolute dynamite. If you have decent, modern strokes you will be rewarded with
exceptional racquet-head speed, effortless spin production and last but not least, really good control. It's not clunky like the Blade
16x19 or the Aero Pro Drive 2013 (very hollow-feeling) -- this one feels really smooth but there is one important thing to
remember -- the faster you swing the better you're rewarded! I played this with Solinco Tour Bite 1.20 mm 17g at 50 lbs and it
complemented the racquet perfectly. If stringing with a poly, I wouldn't recommend going above 52 lbs. Hybriding feels ok, but
nothing like a low tensioned shaped-poly will! One more important thing to know with. This racquet's manufacturer variances are
enormous. I have 6 of these bad boys and each of the weight and balance is different and range from 11 oz strung to 11.4 oz
strung. I took my time and got each one to 11.6 oz and 5 pts headlight. This, is in my opinion, is the ideal balance/weighting for
this racquet, closer to the M2.0, however for whatever reason the 3.0 plays much faster and smoother than the 2.0. I was a
Division 1 player for 3 years in and play tournaments now at the 5.5/open level. My son, who is a top junior in RI, just switched to
this racquet from the Babolat Aero Pro Drive and his game has never been better. I have a one-handed backhand (my best shot)
and this racquet rewards a compact fast swing like nothing else. The slice is penetrating and knives through the court. The
generic power level is low (a good thing) which will cause you to hit out freely and if you suppenate appropriately then your balls
will bite and penetrate! This is not a racquet for anyone rated below NTRP 4.0 -- if your strokes are developed, your game will get
better, but if not, you'll be spraying the ball/hitting way short. You will adjust quickly to this racquet and cracking the ball with
authority in no time. Take this out for a spin -- keep in mind the strings/weighting and tension -- you'll never regret it, I promise.
Comments: Two summers ago, I demoed the BLX Blade 98 that everybody was raving about. After fifteen minutes
in, I knew that frame wasn't for me. Way too crisp, bordering on stiff and jarring and the spin was way below par. It sure was
solid though. I remarked that if Wilson could open the pattern a touch and dial down the stiffness, it would be gold. Well two
years later, I think I've just hit with that desired frame, only it has Dunlop graphics. From the beam width, headsize, stiffness,
etc., this is almost a carbon copy of the BLX Blade with a more open pattern that is less harsh. Good from all areas of the court.
However, to reduce the jarring feel with the same stiffness, dunlop has muted this thing so much that it has very little feel at all.
And unfortunately, feel is a dealbreaker for this guy.
Comments: This is a good, but not great, frame. It does not have the power, spin combo of the new Babolat
AeroPro Drive or the Yonex racquets which I think are slightly better in most categories. However, the M3.0 is a very solid and
comfortable racquet. There is a good amount of control and it is not as underpowered as I thought it might be. The grip shape is
one of the best that I have ever used, which adds to the stability on strong exchanges with your opponent. I think a thin multi
string would bring out the best in this frame.
Comments: I owned an old 300 version but this racquet is way better than the older version. It has a penetrating
slice, very stable in the backhand, forehand, volleys, return and it is easy to generate head speed when serving. The weight is just
enough and has very comfortable feel. Excellent job Dunlop by changing the specs and shape of this racquet!
Comments: This racquet is an excellent racquet. What I appreciate most is the soft feel. I think it would be great
for anyone with shoulder issues. I used to play with a 9 oz, Dunlop Biomimetic 4D 550 Light but wanted more power. This
racquet is much more stable and powerful on all groundstrokes and volleys. I do agree that if you do not hit it in the sweet spot,
the ball with dump in the net. But after playing with it for 5-6 weeks, that no longer is an issue.
Comments: This is the best racquet I have ever played with having tried many, many different racquets over the
years. I am a 4.0 all-court singles player and need something with enough substance to handle hard hitters, but manueverable
enough to not weigh me down. This is the perfect combination of power, control and manueverability. It is so, so solid from the
baseline, and my topspin off both wings feels much heavier. Backhand slice feels like shooting a rifle - pin point and exact. Most
of all, I love how this performs on the short ball, as I can whip it over the net and down in the court resulting in a more aggressive
and confidence approach to closing out the point. My only regret is that I did not purchase two at the same time to get the TW
discount! I'm ordering my second one now.
Comments: I've played with Dunlop before, but nothing compares to this model, as it's way better in every way than
any other previous model. It plays like a dream; it's solid, comfortable, the backhand slice is amazing, and it has good pop and
control. Great job Dunlop!
Comments: This racquet is solid, comfortable and extremely maneuverable. It's an upgrade over previous Dunlops
of this line. I personally don't like the paint job, but it did play sweet, doing all things well and nothing badly. I give it a thumbs
Comments: This racquet plays excellent. It's the best 300 to date. I have played with every generation of the Dunlop
300 models; I upgrade each time the new model comes out. This by far is the best version. It does not get pushed around like the
previous models. Groundstrokes feel crisp, volleys are effortless, serves are heavy and accurate, service returns are smooth and
deep, slices are penetrating, and topspin is easy to generate. If you are in the market for a new frame, or looking to improve your
game, this is the frame to consider. You won't be disappointed.
Comments: I'm really glad I purchased this racquet after watching the lukewarm video review. The written review
including Mark's comments, and some YouTube video comments by Chris convinced me this racquet would suit an all-around
and excel for a doubles player. The power was more than adequate and the control was excellent. It plays a lot softer than my
current racquet (Wilson Juice 100) and feels more solid returning serve and volleying. Like Mark, I think this racquet plays a lot like
an open pattern Head Radical (without the Head grip shape that killed that racquet for me), and a Yonex 98D, without the
Now it's time for a second purchase.
