Either a Max 100G or Max 150G, I believe.

It's a MAX 150G, in the photo above!

The MAX 100G I believe was only released in Japan in mid 80's (ie after the 150 and 200). To be honest I'm not sure about this, does anyone know the facts about the MAX 100G racquet?

Oh, and if anyone wants to sell one, I would pay a fortune for a MAX 100G with an original cover, and I mean a fortune!!!

Why?? The Max 100G was not a Injection Molded Frame and was not made in England.

Hi vsbabolat,

So can you confirm that the MAX 100G was indeed made in Japan? I thought that it wasn't an IMF as well, so are you sure about this?

The reason I would pay a fortune for an original MAX 100G with cover, is I collect these Dunlop MAX racquets and can't find this anywhere, it is rare!!!

My Friend have max100G but the painjob better than max200G .

IMF racquets don't have grommets because of the production process:
First there is a casting of a low melting point alloy core. The alloy core is then put in the injection molding machine. A Compound of GRAPHITE and NYLON is Melted and then injected around the alloy core. Once the graphite and Nylon is cooled the Alloy core is heated up so it melts and then poured out of the frame. This leaves individual string holes that have pillars inside the frame. There are no holes drilled in these injection molded frames by Dunlop.

I have a Max 200G display with a cut out showing the inside of the Max 200G.

The only IMF racquets are:
Max 150G, Max 200G, Max 300i, Max 400i, Max 500i. Max 800i, and the Slazenger Phantom IMF.

I really would like to buy one of those MAX 100G, and I mean really want to buy:)

So if anyone out there has one with original cover, will pay loads for it, let me know please!!!

Realise it's a later non IMF frame, but sometimes (and I do mean sometimes), it's just nice to add something to the collection, and I collect Dunlop Max rackets (amongst others), so need this one for sure!!!

Okay, that's interesting... That looks as if it should be the 300i, but it says 200GT. What is the deal here? It says graphite injection on it and it is grommetless, so it has to be injection moulded. If that is the case, it has to have been made in the Dunlop factory in England since it was the only one in the world. In that case, it is some early or special version of the 300i. Is that the case or there is something I didn't account for?

Rorsach
02-18-2009, 09:17 AM
It says 200GT, not 300GT. Perhaps a 200G in a 300I paintjob. Or a 300I mock-up, before they settled on the 300I name.

Or someone has been creative with Photoshop.

I wonder how this one is going to hit. I know that it would be different than the MAX 200G because it is not injection moulded and it has grommets, but the shape is identical and that makes me curious...

It is a Max 300i Prototype with Max 200GT printing on it, a darker blue, and glossy clear coat Finnish. This was prior to Dunlop's decision to calling it the Max 300i.

This is a prototype for the 300i, obviously before it was called the 300i:)

The specs match the Max 300i because it is a Max 300i just with glossy clear coat and with 200GT where it should say 300i. The Max 200GT prototype was not released to the public and was a test racquet.

do I have this correct? the max 100, 200, 300i(200gt), 400i and 500g all have the same headsize? that's 1-5 with the magic 83 square inch headsize. Does anyone have them all???pics!!!!!!!
I played with about 5 different max 200g's and hated all of them, actually found them unplayable, then I got an original in a trade which was perfectly strung, it felt exactly like a chunky prostaff!!!!mmmm, the grip is still terrible though and I will put a fresh fairway on it soon, guess these puppies didn't age well despite their hearty appearance...Also heard stories of disintegrating grommets. Like hitting with a kneissl, 200g's are a unique and wonderful thing.

The MAX200G and 300I come from the same mold. The 400I is a tiny bit bigger and the 500I and 800I are larger still.

There are almost no grommets on a 200G and the ones that are there are easily replaced, but i find find quite tough.

You are missing the Max 150G. The 100 does not belong. The Max 500i and Max 800i were reported to be 95. The Max 500i and Max 800i are different mold to each other. The Max 500i is very boxy beam design while the Max 800i is some what more aerodynamic in beam design.

Never heard of disintegrating grommets because there are only grommets in the throat bridge and only 6 individual grommets in strategic locations.

plasma
02-19-2009, 12:17 PM
yes, the 100 lacks the throat dimples, found on the 150g ("baby g")...amazing that only the 200g's and 300i used that sublime mold...looking to match my 150g....nothing like a tiny graphite head for taking massive effortless cuts at the ball!!!!

Getting back to the thread.

There are many different versions of these Dunlop Max IMF racquets. I collect them, and have come to realise how many there are, it really is amazing!

Even the later 800i came in 2 completely different molds, which really surprised me as it was only available for a year.

There are dozens of different versions of the 200G. For example, even in the first 2 years, it had three different molds. I think I explained this earlier. Anyway will have my digital camera now in only 8 days!!

Looking forward to posting loads of pics:)

By the way the McEnroe 1984 is another version I've never seen, another for my wants list! Do you know how rare this is? Was it an export to US only would you know?

Dunlop made the double green stripe Max 200G right through 1985. In 1986 is when the first version of the green and gold stripe Max 200G came out. In 1988 is when the second version of the green and gold stripe came out.

besides the test prototype was there only 1 version of the 300i? (cosmetically or otherwise?)

Hey plasma, what's the weight of the 150G that you have? I played with the 150G in the early/mid 80's... looking at it now I can't believe I was able to make contact with such a small head! I remember it being pretty heavy and hard to swing but it suited my game back then - probably now that I'm old and fat I would not be able to swing it at all :-)

There were at least 2 versions of the 300i, first in 85/86, second in 88. There was possibly a third in 90, but I've never seen it!!

This is possibly my favourite ever racquet:) I have the original version in brand new never used condition, 2 different demos of the first version and a few of the second version (some very used over the years). The prototype is being looked after for me by the marvellous all around top bloke who goes under the name of vsbabolat:):)

what are the differences between the two (or 3) versions of the 300i? I love how dunlop saved this mold for its top player frames and didn't pimp it out to endless consumer clones, like wilson did their 85's...that spearmint 200g is phenomenal! did Martina play a stock 200g (stealth bomber pj)? I saw an ad on the bay for a Martina racquet for almost 2,000!!!, it was the 200g but had a unique shape (near the throat, almost like a kneissl, otherwise the same), wasn't able to save the pic unfortunately....

She played with a blacked out MAX 200G at least on one Wimbledon. I believe it was the stock racquet, because it wouldn't make sense to get a knock off as it wouldn't have the same properties and will thus defeat the purpose.

The only differences between the 2 different 300i's is the paint job cosmetics and they aren't that different either! First was 86 second 88. There could have been a third in 90, because there was a rare version of the 400i in 1990, so why not the 300i? I really don't know, but I know a man who probably does, he has some very special rackets, and he might tell us the answer to this:)

Anyway, photos of this lot in only 5 days:):)

Fair point, and I promised myself that if I didn't start putting photos on here within a year of being here, then I would give up and leave!

So I've got 3 days:shock:

Jimbo, dont you have a cell phone with cam like most everybody else ?
Snap some shots, email to yourself, or bluetooth to your pc, xfer to a hosting site and add link. Easy as 1,2,3 :)

I can do the 1,2,3 and 5 but not the 4:(

Well I can transfer the photos to the hosting site, but it takes me like 50 goes as my computer keeps crashing each time I try (i.e 20 minutes per photo so not worth it). To be honest I've been too lazy to fix it, as my computer still works (just), and I use it most days and don't want to be without it for a couple of weeks, which is probably how long it willl take to fix. Until it stops working completely I'm just going to work with it!

20 minutes is an awful long time for loading video, let alone only picture.

Hi Mick, sorry I didn't explain very well. I'm using broadband which I'm guessing is dsl, but the reason it takes 20 minutes per photo, is that I am only successful in uploading a photo to a hosting site once in about 50 tries. The other 49 crashes my computer, so I have to restart 49 times. I think that explains it better. And I know I need to fix my computer, but like I said, while it does most things fine and quite quickly, I've just havn't bothered with it!

I'm going to really try to put some photos up tommorrow, if I don't get too annoyed with my computer!

Almost had enough!

Spent over an hour trying to upload 1 single photo, and failed. My computer crashed every time. I will try for the last time tomorrow.

Although I realised that I can post my photos in my avatar directly from my computer:)

So Virginia, here is my Wilson Jimmy Connnors C-1:)

Did you remember to photo Maureen in action?

I can download photos, as hopefully shown above (this isn't my photo though), but still can't upload!

And thought we had a deal, I wanna see Maureen madly swinging her Mono:)

Well done jimbo - finally! Now I guess there'll be no stopping you. :)

Meaghan, jimbo will be able to tell you which version that is, but nominally at least, the specs on all 200G's should be the same.

That one is the original double green stripe version from 1982-85, and is the best version!

The Specs vary because the racquet was made in L, LM and M, and the grip sizes varied from 2-6, which all makes quite a difference!

Incidently, I 've got an L3 and an M6, and they feel like quite different racquets. The Light are way more common than the Medium.

Anyway:

18x20
Weight 350-382g
Balance 310-323mm
Flex 40 (approx)
SW 360 (approx)

If that is any help?

Yes, I have to say I am really pleased to get a photo of one of my racquets on here:)

And the only thing stopping me, will be the fact it took me about 1 hour to successfully upload that photo! Yes, 1 hour!

Otherwise, there would indeed be no stopping me:)

Which racket is the one second from the left? That racket looks like the McEnroe Limited Edition (Boron/Graphite). It has an egg shape head. The bridge design is somewhat similar to the 200G design. Not a very stable racket. Not a good racket at all. I could not get used to it.

The 5th racket from the top - Lime Neon color - is that the factory paint job? Blindingly cool! Not sure if I want to be swing that thing around. Great collection though.

No, that is an amazing home-made effort by a Dutch Master:)
