Hi, I recently bought a Dunlop 200g Muscle Weave and after comparing is with other photos, the racket seems to have some differences. I was wondering if I got the real deal or if I got pulled a fast one.

Here are some photos

the first thing you need to do is to learn how to take a photo:), then avoid the temptation to post 12 oversized images in one thread.

even if you're using a camera phone most have macro settings that show nice detail if used properly

Back on topic your 200g MW Tectonics (from what I could discern in the images) looks identical to my genuine ones, what were you concerned about?

I have 3. They are all a little different in cosmetics, but are still the same racket.

^^ Right, some have "Midplus 95", some just "95" graphics on the top hoop. Same racquet though.

The racket is legit. Nobody will bother faking such models anyway ... if you buy new models (especially Wilson and/or Babolat) from the bay then you should watch out ... but I don't think there's much money in faking a Muscle Wave since Federer and Nadal don't play with a paint job of one.
People who are searching for these rackets will be able to tell generally if they are genuine, so there's no point in making fakes.
My 2 pence

Oh I see. Haha, I didn't think the images would be that big. My apologies. Well, what concerned was that there's nothing on the in sides of the throat. I mean, there's no specifications written or anything.

Such big pictures. Those who are using Dial-Up would probably DIE! Haha, well anyways, back on topic. This racquet is different from the original 200G. The difference is the Muscle Weave technology that comes along with this newer version of the 200G. I would take some pictures of my 200G but it's in my friends tennis bag.

Dial up, whats that? There are still people in the world using dialup? I'm spoiled I suppose having a T1 at home....

Guess what ... if anybody still uses dial up in this century ... then they deserve to...DIE :) :oops:

Lol, I still know a few friends that uses Dial Up because their family isn't so rich to even get DSL... It's better to have internet then to not have it at all.

Sorry to bump this.

But that's not a MW 200g. It looks like it's a paint job of an older Dunlop model. The first pic you can see the throat area is not the same as a regular 200g.

Maybe it was going to be a racquet for Thomas Johanssen or someone else from Dunlop. I though I heard TJ used an earlier model and had MW paintjob.

Yep, it looks like a older spec Tour Pro 95 with a MW200G pj. I think Jimbo333 has one of these too - ex. Thomas Johanssen as what mltatlor has said.

My Tour Pro 95 (newer version):

My MW200G:

A side profile showing the beam width would confirm this. The 200G is constant 21mm. The Tour Pro will be a dual taper design and be wider at the middle of the hoop.

I miss my 200GMW.....

I agree. That's clearly not a MW200G -- just compare the beam shapes. Looks like a Rev Tour Pro to me (a very nice stick in its own right).

(Those photos may have been huge, but at least they were OUT OF FOCUS... Yikes! :rolleyes: )

Looking at one or two of the (bad) pictures again, its definately a Tour Pro as the throat grommet piece is a dead giveaway.

And as Keifers has said, its a lovely racket. Plays very different to a MW200G though. More power and more spin. Not quite the same buttery feel and control though.
