In my series of going through the current racquets of various brands, the time has come to Dunlop tennis racquets.
Dunlop is a British manufacturing company that was established in 1910 with a focus on racquet sports. They produce balls, strings, racquets, sportswear, bags, etc. The brand Dunlop Sport was acquired by the Japanese conglomerate Sumitomo Rubber Industries in 2017. They have a rich history in the tennis racquet world with names like John McEnroe and Steffi Graf using their racquets historically. The current roster is a bit more modest with Kevin Anderson, Jamie Murray and Miomir Kecmanovic standing out, but they still produce excellent products. The video below deals with Dunlop tennis racquets.
Dunlop Tennis Racquets
Dunlop has a simple but well-thought-out line-up of racquets. Three racquet lines, three categories: Control (CX), Spin (SX), Power (FX).
If you want to check out my review of key racquets in each line. Check out my Dunlop CX 200 Tour review, Dunlop SX 300 and 300 Tour review or my Dunlop FX 500 and 500 Tour review.
I have liked Dunlop's recent racquet lines. The FX 500 was great, but a bit too stiff for my arm, the SX line was a good competitor to the Pure Aero (but not the kind of racquet I gravitate towards personally) and the CX line is something I have used for tournaments in the past and my favorite racquets of the bunch, ranging from the CX 200 Tour 18×20 to the more tweener-like FX 400 Tour (which is a nice, more control-oriented power frame).
If you want to purchase a Dunlop racquet, please consider doing so from one of my affiliates: Tennis Warehouse, Tennis Warehouse Europe and Tennis Only (AUS) and a small commission go to Tennisnerd without any extra cost to you.
Which Dunlop racquet would you get and why? And do you have any specific questions about Dunlop tennis racquets?
Hi there, I play with the Dunlop AeroGel 300 Tour. Originally bought it back in 2010, but struggled to play with it at the time and only played with it for a short while. Played with Babolat Pure Aero for a long time (about 3 different gens) but after some serious arm problems and not really enjoying the Aero with arm friendly strings I decided to dust off the old AeroGel 300 Tour.
Really enjoyed it this time around, although I have customized it quite heavily adding weight to both the head and the grip (350g strung, 315 mm balance). I found that these mods made it easier to play with, has almost no power in stock form (especially as I like strings such as Hyper G and Cyclone).
Longwinded way of asking a simple question, in your view what new racquet would be a suitable replacement for my Dunlop 300 T given my current setup?
