The Dunlop FX Line Preview

by Tennisnerd

Dunlop has now released the racquet series CX for control and SX for spin. Soon they will release the FX and here is my Dunlop FX Series Preview.

The Dunlop FX series will include seven new racquets catering to different players looking for more free power and depth on their shots. It is their reply to the iconic Pure Drive series and considering how good the CX and SX lines were, it is going to be an interesting challenge to the other large tennis brands.

I hope to review a couple of the racquets in the Dunlop FX line. Find out more about them on the official Dunlop Sports website.

Hey! they look nice, I’m not a fan of Pure drives, so I don;t think I’ll like the FX line, I did not have the chance to hot with any dunlops lately.
I just had a hit with the new extreme tour! Feels nice, 63 unstrung RA, thinner beam, feels like a radical but more powerful and spin friendly.

(According to the info on the racquet)

Du har helt rätt, Hans! Tyckte det såg konstigt ut – stod fel på deras hemsida.
